by tonbery - Jam Entry

This is a game about some geometric forms trying to survive on a hostile world, full of hostile red vectors.

The minimalist concept was considered in all the aspects of the game, from the visual to the gameplay, including the control schemes, objective and the sound.

The most simple forms, must dodge some other simple forms to dont get themselves killed, for that the player use a simple "click - click drag - click hold" scheme.

Try to get the best score!

Hope you all have some fun in this game and let us know your opnion here or on our facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/KuupuDev

I dunno if it's just me, but the controls weren't very intuitive. After a while I got used to them, though. Cool game, and great looking too!

Controls were quite wonky, especially the swiping action. Other than that great game overall!

I sent so many young triangles to their deaths... AND FOR WHAT??! ;_;

Oh, because it was fun. Well, then, uh... carry on.

Had a great time! I got really attached to the rounder polygons I was able to make :P

ye! how many rounded they are, more points they make over time! it's a good thing to be attached by they! ;)

Solid game. I enjoyed it but couldn't really figure out how to get more people. I think I had to click it again? But wasn't sure - I wish you could just touch them and bam. Fun and actually minimalist.

Really smart, I had difficulty with the swipe though which left me feeling a little sad when a swipe accident killed all my round guys!

Loved the music! I had a hard time with the controls, though - particularly the click and drag. Most times it didn't register, other times it would send them flying way to fast. Love the idea though, and you nailed the theme. Good job!

Interesting concept. Could be a bit more challenging though. Good job though! :D

Nice graphics, atmosphere and well polish but maybe too slow.

Fun game, checked this out because of its 10s movie thingy :-)
Played until 165673 but due to lack of any challenge stopped. Increasing speed or something would have been nice. Looks pretty cool nevertheless.

Controls didn't make much sense at first, but with a little practice I got the hang of it. Cool concept with good art. As always, nice to play an entry with music and sound effects. Well done! :)

It seemed to recognize a drag when I didn't drag. Nice game, wish it had a little more variation.

I couldn't master the controls at all, I had no clue how to dash, sometimes an unwanted dash was triggered. Also, I didn't feel very challenged during my game, you may want to improve the pacing (faster action to fit the music, faster mob - the dash would still be meaningful IMO) and the difficulty. Also, is there any difference between shapes ? I thought it was some sort of "shield", but no...

But overall a nice concept and good atmosphere, congrats for your good work :)

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.
