This looks pretty good. I'll vote when I can. You can check out my game if you want.

Plays really smoothly and collision is great. Game itself gets sort of boring, though. I really enjoy the graphics, however.

I think those mechanics are common. Overall, it's fine.

I enjoyed the music, and your little ninja graphic is pretty cute.

Very entertaining, I can't get bored with this simple platformers. And the map was huge, I got lost a few times >.<

The controls are a little floaty, but otherwise its a solid platformer.

Thanks! It was hard for me to make a minimal game without it getting boring, so I tried to make the map huge to compensate.

Thanks, I was trying to make the map huge to make it more fun, I'm glad to see that it worked!

I'll keep that in mind for next time.

Good job!

Fun little game. I fell in love in the music though. For all I know it doesn't fit... but it feels great and set the chilled-out mood for the game. Good job!

I liked it but I think song 2 is very inferior to song 1 and I think game would have been better with a simple jump sound effect.

Still oddly fun/calm. Good mood good take on the theme of minimalism.

Pretty cool, I liked the jazzy music kept me interested. I only got 20 points but it was some pretty solid gameplay. Nice one!

Doesn't have anything to keep my interest. Needs a minimap. The music doesn't loop well in the slightest. (Not to knock the quality of the music, because it's GREAT.)

Challenging little game, some of those orbs have to be approached the right way. Good controls, great pixel art, music is really cool but like it has been said before not really suited. Needs some sort of effect to show the spawnpoint has been saved. Well Done =]

I won this game, though it took some time. It would be nice to have a minimap, 'cause when there are less than 5 trinkets left, it gets quite frustrating to find the remaining ones. Also would nice to end the game after you found all the trinkets (+ the potato).

Btw, I did find the potato before finding the trinkets, though I couldn't do anything with it. Does something happen if I get to the potato after finding all the trinkets?

Anyway, really nice graphics and great mood. The music is also great, though it gets a little annoying over time.

Well done! :)

Overall: 4; Innovation: 2; Fun: 3; Theme: 5; Graphics: 5; Audio: 3; Humor: N/A; Mood:4.

Alucard J:
Thanks! A spawnpoint effect was something that was out because of time, but I would have put in time allowing :(

I'm thinking that a minimap would be good, but not nessicarly to show the orbs, for that I'd take a Knytt style effect over a minimap. (If you haven't played knytt, play it *now*)
Nothing happens when you find the potato, even if you have all the orbs. I wanted to put in something awesome, but I didn't have enough time.
You an press M to mute the music, but I forgot to mention that :(

Thanks for the ratings!

I found the tato! Did you make the music by yourself? :)

Nsmurf says ...
May 10, 2013 @ 1:38am

Good job! I didn't make the music, one of my friends did, all within the time limit :)
The music was the only reason that I was in the jam, everything was done in 48 hours.

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.
