Follows the theme well and I like the trailing graphics behind the square!

I agree that the trailing graphics are sweet. Good use of theme as well.

Nice game, the only thing I missed there was some background music, this kind of game really could use some. Anyway, awesome entry! ;)

76 Fool! Boom!

More content would have been good, but interestingly I found the invitation to post scores quite encouraging. I played many times to get my high score.

Minimalism at it's finest: bringing down game graphics to its purest form, making the player more aware of the gameplay.

I had a lot fun playing this game. Great work!

Nails the theme. It's actually quite a fun little game, the jumping is a bit sticky at times and the audio glitched a bit for me. But overall nice entry!

This is crying out for an iPhone port. :) Well done. Very simple but nicely executed. That's the most minimalist motion blur I've ever seen.

A nice game, simple but fun. I like the randomly generated blocks!

124 :p It was fun, reminded me of Tom Sennett's Runman game (the original, not "race around the world") in which you jump and roll to avoid blocks. I guess this is even more minimalistic.

Infinite runner. Although with the obstacles hanging down remind me a bit of the "hover-sleds" level of BattleToads for the NES

I found the game very minimalist, combining with theme. Nice entry.

Enjoyable run-'n-jump style game, though I often had over-hanging platforms spawn, which was rather pointless for me because I just had to do nothing. As a result, the game didn't have as much actual stuff going on as it maybe should have to keep interesting.

What's here is fine though. At least replays are fast and the plays are addicting!

Full points for theme.

Cool game :) The random level unfortunately seems to generate many overhangs in a row, which is not very challenging at all.

One screen one button one action game. Fits theme perfectly.

Cool. Simple and fits the theme. Some sound might have helped juice it up a bit. Good job :)

Solid, reminds me of Spike Dislike, but I think it needed a little bit extra juice aesthetically, sonically or a gameplay twist to keep it interesting. It's amazing what even your simple trail adds to it.

Good job completing it for LD. Would expand on it with more mechanics and polish. Found some of the collision to be off/confusing when I thought I made a jump but did not (normally landing at the start of a block)

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.
