Really enjoyed this. The use of a single button is really simple but the mechanics really come together to form a great little game.

Needed sound fx and a better explanation of what was going on. Once I figured it out though it was fun.

Cool idea! A clue bout how the block moves in default way will be great.

neat. kind of reminds me of some of increpare's simpler puzzle games. honestly, though, i think this should be a one-button game. using a bunch of keys to do the same action is needlessly confusing and doesn't add much to the game.

That's a good game. Simple but really hard.

On the money, great game.

Cool idea, minimal at it's best! Might need sound or music, however! :)

Appealingly simple presentation, and devious levels. One of the best uses of the minimalism theme I've seen. I would have preferred to see the direction the player was facing though. Sometimes it's not clear when to time the turns either.

Simple and nice.

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.
