I wanted to use Haxe 3.0 dev, and NME 4.0 dev but there seems to be some bugs that have yet to be worked out when rendering in flash and freeing memory in HTML5. So I used them anyway and could only export to Windows (Linux doesn't compile either).

Anyway, I have made a game where you get the ball(s) to the goal by making circles and rectangles. The code is setup to add joints (both solid and powered on key press) but I don't have any more time to put into this.

Make sure to extract the whole zip before running the .exe.

Mouse (click,highlight)
Z enable dragging
R enable rotating
BACKSPACE delete selected shapes
CRTL-A select all shapes
+ unpause
- pause

The trick is that you can only build while the game is paused and before the level has started.

If there is an actual game here I cannot discern it.

Nice, minimalistic crayon physics, just hard to figure out how to play

Nice concept. The interface was a bit hard to figure out though :(

Interesting game. I took me quite a while to figure out the interface.

But nevertheless good job.

Had another go, managed to pass the levels. Making the goal zone a different colour would help.

Didn't figure out how rotating elements worked.

I like the concept, but the ball physics were a bit awkward (it studders and seems a bit slow). I wish the buttons would toggle instead of having to make click rectangle or circle everytime to make an object.

All the pieces are there but the UI and graphics need a little cleaning up. It is too much to ask people to remember hot keys these day. Great potential. I hope to see a polished version of this for you project next Wednesday.

I took quite a while to figure what to do but it's a nice job. Cheers!

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.
