If you crash into a bubble, a bubble is created. If you shoot, a bubble is created. If your bullet hits a bubble that is not touching any other bubbles, a bubble is created. If your bullet hits a bubble that is touching other bubbles, all of them are destroyed. If you create more than thirty bubbles, you are destroyed.

Whoa, this is an insanely hard game! :) Fun mechanic, though it all moved *very* fast. I dunno if it's time-based or not?

Hehe, nice game. I messed everything up ;)
Sometimes I hit a bubble and died while respwaning and the controls are a bit too unprecise/fast.
But overall interesting mechanics, well done :)

Good game, very hard though to aim. The one issue I have is that the game is that when you hut a bubble, your ring and position are hidden, so you don't know when you will appear or where, and in a few rounds with the game, I would appear with a bubble overlapping me and take another hit over and over again.

Idea is novel, aiming is hard! Good use of theme.

Movement seems very fast, it's hard to control. Interesting concept though. I like the ambience though

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.
