IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

Canonby sparkleswirl - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Jump-and-avoid game with a topological and a musical twist. Four parts Canabalt, one part bell ringing and some undetermined amount of square dancing, Canon is a simple but challenging action/rhythm hybrid where you have to control four jumpers on the same level in canon.
Relaxed Mode is slower and with shorter levels, but the jumps are still pretty tight. If you are stuck but want to see some later levels, check out the gameplay video I posted.
Use WASD/arrow keys to jump, space to start/exit a level. Dvorak controls (,AOE) are supported because I'm crazy!
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you had trouble with levels 6 and 7 before, a new version has been uploaded that fixes them. They were more difficult than intended because of a bug/typo. Note that although the fix was uploaded after the compo deadline it was actually made three hours before the compo ended---I forgot to upload it once it was done, oops! Those levels were still possible with the bug there (the gameplay video was made with the version that had the bug) but they were just much harder.

You must sign in to comment.
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.
