Cool graphics and colors. I think that the difficulty is fine.
The music is a bit tiring and the cry it's too loud.

Good idea and mechanics. The ``pause´´ menu it is cut and I can't select the options. Great work!

I really like it! We almost developed a similar idea!
I think I will try Android version tonight!
Good job!

Good gameplay, reminds me of a wonderful game I used to play (totally forgot the name). Audio and design is good too, good job :)

The visuals are very much my thing, good "spin" (haha) on the genre too. Feels very complete.

Agree with previous posters - graphics look good, a bit difficult but still fun, music gets a tad monotone

Good idea !
Maybe it's a little bit difficult, and i found the shout a bit annoying, but overall pretty cool =)

I love graphics in this game

Very good! Feels very polished. I found the fact that the holes didn't always exactly match the shape that fits through them a little confusing at first though.

I like the mechanics of the game and it plays well but make sure to decide on what kind of mood you want your game to set. You have this very abstract dance music in the background with this futuristic tunnel level which works well together. Next to that there is a guy screaming when you get hit and buttons that look like they came from farmville. This might not be your area of expertise but make sure you have 1 unified aesthetic this makes your game way more presentable and engaging.

Wo!!! We had a similar game :) XD I think that maybe is necessary put some border in the gates

The menus were all shifted halfway off the screen for me when I ran it fullscreen. Also, the overlapping geometry of the gate makes it harder to see the correct shape sometimes, which was kind of annoying. Other than that, it was a decent little game.

Graphics are good!
A little difficult to tell the shape with further barriers in the ground, maybe varying the colors of barriers from one to another would be better?

Cool! Nice graphics and good music. It was surprisingly difficult, even after I figured out the mechanics of it! I kind of wish that the design of the menus would match the game's environment better. The death cry is so funny, haha

The graphics are really cool for a jam game. As said before me, music's a bit repetitive and the losing SFX is quite annoying.

I think, though, that while the gameplay had something interesting, the novelty wore off after approximatively 30 seconds. It may not be my kind of game, but I felt there wasn't anything motivating me to keep playing. A good example of a hook in a game with similar mechanics is what Super Hexagon does: Give the player a goal; Have a finite level (60 seconds) that you have to pass.

Fun game. Nice visuals.
Also I think th Windows / OS/X links are switched.

Amazing game, my eyes had orgasm looking at low-poly environment and minimalistics design. Simple, but entertaining mechanics. The only thing I felt needed improvement is UI elements to fit whole minimalist style, but that's just a little thing)

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on indiexpo.net ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

It's a fun and pretty game, but I feel like it becomes too quickly hard!

Graphics are really nice and gameplay is fun.
I like the spinning wheel idea, but not really fond of the controls on Android. Hitting the screen to turn the wheel is not really intuitive, it could have been even better with gesture based controls !
Really polished entry anyways

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
