Oh and don't let the colours catch up with you or it'll get very difficult very quickly!

Good use of the theme. Can be a bit hard at times with the timing of the jump, but it adds to the challenge. Good job!

I like your take on the theme, and the music is great.

Yah, pretty unlikely that you'll make it past 3000, but hey, who says you have to get a super high score :P But yeah, in hindsight perhaps it ramps up too quickly.

too hard and i got no sense of motion at all. some scrolling background would do.

Kinda rough and sparse, but solid.

Great look - simple but clean. I found the gameplay a little difficult though - partially because it seemed like there was some slowdown and it threw my timing off for the jumps. I think with a few tweaks and some additional elements (while keeping the minimalist look) and you'd have a great little endless runner :)

Extremely unforgiving! A fine match for the theme :)

Solid entry for 48 hours but needs some polish. Jumping physics need work for sure. I tried several times but never got that far. The music was nice.

I ran it in Chrome because it was way too slow in Firefox. Nice, but just a little too minimalistic I think. I'd like to see more interesting things to jump over.

Yeah, for some reason Firefox doesn't like my games :P I was trying to make more interesting things too, I had big plans but I ran out of time :P

Crazy controls. Time of reaction of pressing space always different :( Really hard to play.

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.
