It's a two player vs shooter... thing. For the minimalism part I tried to take the act of shooting out of a shooter so each shot takes place at timed intervals.

Really cool idea. The timed mandatory shooting and ricocheting bullets makes for a really interesting balance between shooting your opponent while trying not to shoot yourself. :P Well done!

Really minimalistic as it's supposed to be yet fun. You don't only have to keep your opponent's position in mind whilst shooting, but also make sure you don't shoot yourself. Some of the narrow(one square wide) openings were hard to navigate through and usually led to the player shooting himself unwittingly. Still, a fun and pretty unique experience.

Sweet Game... it's sorta like mine "Hot Potato". Great minds think alike!

Multiplayer only games always remind me how forever alone I am.

Cool game. It reminded me of the Atari era.

Nice use of the theme. I played with my roommate, and we both enjoyed it. I'd love to see an expanded version.

It's like a modern-ish Combat from my Atari 2600 days. My kids really dig it. The Loser / Winner screen reminded me of some games I played in the 80s as well. Congrats!

Wow, this is really nice. I love the complexity that the timed shot mechanic adds. Good stuff :)

Unfortunately I can't rate this one since it's Windows only.

Cool idea. There is collision bug when you are on wall (you cant move). I need to try it with friends :D

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.
