This is Snape!

Use WASD, the arrow keys, or a controller to move. Hit the Snape when it is the color of the ENEMY team, and defend the Snape when it is the color of YOUR team.

Interesting...a tad difficult to maneuver, but it could work!

There seems to be a bug where if the snape is blue, and a blue ball hits it, the orange team scores. A bit annoying, but fun overall :)

Was neat. I kind of wish the player has a slightly different color or trail to help differentiate. And that the balls cycle was a little more nuanced, but still I played and I was victorious 10-7!

Very cool concept. Was fun to play once I got the hang of the controls. It'd be awesome to see a multiplayer version in the future.

Interesting game. I would like to see the snape have a randomized time before changing and modify the color change to be random. Controls were a bit tough as well. All that being said I find this to be one of the most intriguing game ideas I have played so far. Playing with 3 friends would be a fun time.

Interesting, might be more fun to play against actual people. My team's AI seemed to block me from hitting the other team's ball as often as they blocked the other team from hitting ours.

Awesome concept! Could work really great with multiplayer.

Nice concept! I like how action based it is. Definitely would be a great multiplayer couch-action game.

Neat idea! As others have said--multiplayer would be interesting.

Maybe it was just me, but it seemed like the snap would sometimes not respond when I hit it, even when it was my team's color (and I should have scored a point). Maybe I just did something wrong, though.

A fun game with a really solid foundation! Of course I agree with everyone that multiplayer would be an excellent addition, and sometimes the movement can feel sluggish - though that's hand-in-hand with momentum and probably just user error. :) I think having more interesting stadiums would be nice too. Maybe with those blowhole things that they have on Gladiators!

Neat little game. :)

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.
