Neat idea, I like how the player has little bounce helps manuevure the courses

It's a nice game, the controls were a bit difficult, but once I got used to them they worked fine.

Controls aren't quite as tight as I would have liked but the game was actually fun and it kept me playing. Really impressive that you made this in 48 hours though.

Best game that I've played thus far. I was in stitches every time I fell off. The idea of changing the gravity is great - love it! I think the camera could be in a better place, perhaps a little higher? Nice a smooth, interesting if silly physics. Nice one.

Fun little ball-game! I like the ramping up of the difficulty.

And somehow I think the clouds works really well. Nice job, clouds.

Hey, thanks for the nice feedback everyone.

Very funny game. It keeps the player wanting to try to go through the next level. I laughed when trying to pass and fall miserably xD congratulations

Wow, here I thought my game had hard controls, this game is super hard! So hard I can't enjoy it. It does have a cool concept although I don't really see how it relates to theme other than it being simple. The graphics are OK, though I really think the clouds add a nice touch of mood and atmosphere to the game. Perhaps a needed addition would be to have some sort of shadow to know where the ball would land.

I liked the death scene. Which is just as well as I saw it a lot. Very replayable.

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.
