I liked the idea for the grayscale graphics. However, I would love to be able to also use the cursor keys to move the tank around (I use the mouse with my left hand). i don't know why, but the rockets didn't make the tank fly, but I could jump alright.

I loved it. I like the way you can break and make way point to climb up by jumping. The bullets could be a little faster though so it wouldn't look like wind effected particles. Overall, excellent!

That was fun :D Flying tanks are fun to drive. The destructible terrain was a nice touch.

Really liked this one. Being able to jump with a tank is always a plus. Take that, helicopter!

Has a great kind of visceral fun to it. The music doesn't quite match the mood though.

It was a cool little game - I particularly liked how the blue jets were the only colorful thing in the whole game. It felt a bit weird controlling a jetpack-wielding tank with infinite fuel, but I'll give that a pass in the name of cool :-)

I found it a bit hard to judge the physics of the bullets correctly - maybe make the bullets stand out a bit more?

Nice particle effects! Thanks for 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.
