Radius minigolfby NicoSaraintaris - Jam Entry
Radius minigolf is a minimalistic take on minigolf!
(game created by Damian Troncoso & Nico Saraintaris)
How to play?
1. Drag a line (radius) near the ball.
2. Release to make the radius rotate anticlockwise and hit the ball.
3. The longer the rotation, the harder the hit.
4. Try to win as many holes as you can before the time is up!)
We love alliteration (you know, the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words)... so why not to try to take a minimalistic shot at minigolf?
Minigolf and minimalism
So, we think about minigolf and minimalism. A ball, a hole, some obstacles and a swing. And how to perform a minimalistic swing?
We thought about the radius of a circle and we make it rotate anticlockwise in order to hit the ball. The more it rotates, the harder the hit! So, draw a radius and hit the ball!
Play Radius minigolf!
Draw a radius. Hit the ball. And let us know what you think about the game!

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.
