Interesting take. Controls feel rather solid, and it's quite fun scrambling to get the pole to rotate properly so it can be propelled through the stage.

Solid fun game! Had to play it a couple of times to get the hang of the control, but it was entertaining.

Hillarious. I found it really likable. Bookmarked.

Very nice entry! The physics felt a little inconsistent at times, but that's more Unity's doing, I think. I got my best score (75) by just holding the A button...

This is really nice. It's a brilliant wee score attack game. I would have liked a high score display though.

Great game. I found it a little difficult to control at first but soon got the hang of it. I really like the visuals and they fit the theme perfectly. Best score was only 43 but I'll definitely be having another go at it.

Fucking addictive! And frustrating! =)
Good job anyway!

Very solid and neat idea. Had a lot of fun with it. You should put it on kongregate (or similar) as it is a nice highscore game.

Nice and simple. Reminded me a bit of QWOP (This is a good thing)

One of the most fun LD games I have played. Super frustrating in a good way. Very addicting as well.

Great game! This is one of the best takes on minimalist gameplay I've seen so far. Simple yet extremely complex to master.

Cool! Love the idea and the game play - pretty hard and tons of fun

great idea and game! as with many physics based games it can be quite frustrating (especially when you nick the side of a square and lose all your momentum to angular rotation) but very addictive. nicely polished controls. I got 165.4 by taking it slow and trying to keep the pole at a constant angle. The level gets quite hard there and you need a lot of height. Does the level ever end?

Excellent, this is the new QWOP...

May 6, 2013 @ 7:56pm

Wooah - quite hard. It took some time to get it controlled. Great game, fun and addictive and it fits the theme! I only missed some music.

May 9, 2013 @ 10:52am

This ia a great idea! And fun :D

Perfect little game - love it. My best so far is 94

I had a lot of fun with this! 2 things I would change - its really hard to get past the You Win message at 200m, it would be nice if you could pass through that and it just does random obstacles afterwards for a highscore chase. Also, every now and again there are some physics bugs if you exactly hit the join between blocks.

Nice concept but this kind of gameplay drives me crazy ^^
Could use some background music I think.

The game does not need much more tweaking, you have really nailed the mechanic. When I die, I feel it is my own fault not the games, which is important, considering it is a physics game. This makes me want to play again and master my skills.

Unfortunately I could not get the sound to work but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt. Cool game.

Adding some musical tone range to the blocks at the bottom would add a whole new layer to the experience.

Just saw that you got linked to from kottke.org. Congrats!

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.
