Round Box

by Webravenz - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Arcade rythm game, sort of minimalist guitar hero. The game has minimalist gameplay with 3 keys, minimalist design and minimalist sounds.

How long will you survive with this stressfull rythm acceleration ?

you can comment with your best score ;)

Made with Haxe NME

When I first stated I thought it was going to be easy, I was dead wrong. Interesting idea. Well made.

Really great spin on the "runner" genre of games! Nice and clean graphics and simple controls. I could totally see this as a mobile game!

Very nice idea, and indeed, much harder than you think first (at least if you try to collect bonuses).

Really pretty game.
You could make this into a mobile game pretty easily it feels like. Tilt the phone to move left and right and press anywhere on the screen to toggle between the colors :)

Well done. I am usually not a fan of this kind of rhythm based game, but this one is really cool. The simple toggle mechanism is so much nicer than the usual multi-color/keys stuff, especially when the speed increased.

I think what I like is that you must quickly choose between options (toggle or strafe, get the bonus or not), instead of being forced to follow a fixed sequence.

Great sounds choice too.

I like it, very simple concept but beautifully presented. Very nice work on the audio too.

Very nice, great take on the theme. Thank you!

Nice! Fun game. Although only two colors (not including black) they compliment each other well and are not painful on the eyes. Presentation and execution are clean simple and effective. Well done. I suck at it but still, good show!

193, gets interesting near the end, but I don't really want to play the slow beginning again to get there.

This is a really fun and addictive game. The audio fits the game very well. The only problem is that the pace at the beginning is very slow.

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.
