I have noticed one major thing. I made my theory :p . I think you got the idea to use an actual virus that can shapeshifting himself attacking an cell. But , the gameplay, the feel isn't by the theme. But your game is very good and look magnificient. Great job!

Graphics are nice but quite confusing, we can't clearly make the difference between background and obstacles until we get crashed ... But the gameplay is smooth and pleasant.

The idea i good, and the graphics and music is fit the game well. Sadly the game was really hard.

A solid, challenging game. Would've personally liked to have a checkpoint once you got past the first level since I wasn't very good at it... It wasn't really clear to me either that you can roll on top of the flat red/blue things - I thought that simply touching them was enough to kill you until I came to the second level.

Other than that, it's really a cool runner game with good audio and stylish graphics. Great job!

Nice entry. I like the sounds and the graphics very much.
The gameplay mechanics were kind of tough and I needed some runs until I got used to it. If you could implement less hard learning curve (some smaller enemy blocks) at the beginning this would be great.
I could also imagine this very well on mobile!

Nice idea but I think you could have been more permissive with the collisions, it seems a little bit unfair sometimes. Good job

Very nice game!

Like some said, the graphics makes it hard to distinguish obstacles from background,I do not really see how this fits in the theme and the hitbox are maybe too sensitives.
But i think it could be much better with a little bit of polish, keep at it guys ;)

Very nice graphics and audio! Mechanics are cool, but took some time to understand it... Also it was a bit difficult to distinguish what's background and what's obstacle... Also felt a bit unfair when I landed past the center of a "rock" but still died... So I wasn't able to beat it ^^;

Anyways great entry!

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 ( 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.
