Cool, reminds me a little of Audiosurf :D

I really liked it!
The "fuel" changing the screen colour gave it a nice atmosphere. Even more so with the black blocks - it's awesome that playing badly makes the screen go darker.

One thing bothered me though, the ship seems inconsistent with the art style of the blocks...

Oh and I loved the about page :D

Why does the ship have rounded corner but the enemies are just blocks lol Overall it's a good game

Was there a difficulty curve in this? Seemed like I could play forever & ended up killing myself after about 5 minutes.

Difficulty increment is triggered by your score. Chance to spawn black block increases up to 90%. Also speed increases up to a limit.

Pretty good. Fun to see the background change as you pick up differently colored items.

Like the background changing, wish it affected the gameplay a bit more.

Fun for a short while... Background colour affected by which blocks you eat is nice. Could use some more types of thing.

good game. got to 32k. simple enough to play, but the 3 side-by-side blacks make it impossible in some spots.

I got 49188 points. Kinda fun, though there's not much skill to it. Doesn't seem to matter what colors you pick up, and a lot of times you can't avoid a black square at all.

One thing I didn't mention is that score is multiplied by max(red, green, blue) of the background.

This is excellent! One of the highest ratings I've given so far. I really like how the pickups blend with the background color, and the variety of colors reminds me of old Commodore games. Good job!

I liked how the background color changed as you picked up the bars. Great job!

Love the insane speed that builds up. Three black blocks in a row feels unfair (I got to a point with three rows each with three black blocks very close together which finished me off).

You should have made the multiplier effect more noticeable too, because that's a really cool idea.

I think the difficulty ramped a bit too slowly. If there was a slowly depleting fuel gauge it might add more difficulty as well. I gave this maximum points on fun, I love this kind of game :) High score: 48,679.

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.
