So many mechanics I already knew but in such an insane mix that it becames entirely new game which is very fun to play. Graphics are minimalistic but very nice.

Ace. Very well designed puzzle game. Level 2 was a little brutal though, perhaps that could go a bit later. Audio would be good too :-)

Clearly addictive. May lost lots of time on it.

Cool retro game, not really minimal, but still good once you know what to do... :)

Very nice presentation. The faux-Boulderdash graphics were making me want to play the real BD though.

I like how you've adapted rocks and gems into more of a linear platforming type idea. Kind of awkward in places though. These are the things I noticed.

1) doesn't make sense that the rocks fall sideways off of things - at least there's no visual communication telling you to expect that because everything appears to be in a perfectly stacked grid. and also just avoiding the enemies and the rocks once you've made them fall is enough to think about (at least for an early level like that.)

2) The timer could be more obvious, at first I thought I was just doing something wrong trying to get the level to progress so I kept going to the edge of the screen and dying, took me a few levels to notice the timer tucked away in a dark corner.

That's all. Apart from that I really enjoyed it! Some sound would be nice too :)

Love this. A big fan of balderdash / repton, so the nostalgia element with a twist of minimalism lacking control of screen direction felt like a win to me.

What, this works on Wii?
When I'll definitely try this out later!

Very good work. I always preferred Dig Dug to Boulderdash, so if you feel like adding a twist to a classic digging game next time, consider Dig Dug.
It was quite a challenge to beat the whole game, but always reasonable. I did not understand what was going on at first, i.e. a NPC flying around with a lamp in the middle of the screens would have made it easier to grasp the concept. On the other hand, you went for minimalism so it works like this, too.

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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
