Pretty but I think the interface is really confusing
There should be tool tips or captions or something

Nice mechanics and graphics, but could have made the green gear more visually pronounced, took me a while to figure out that I had to click there! I think with a little more work on level design and sound this can become a great game!

I loved graphics and idea, good job.

I liked the graphics a lot and thought the concept showed a lot of promise.

I also found the interface rather confusing - Its weird to me that the green gear is both "Pull up menu of stuff" and "go" - It seemed like you were going for a very aesthetically pleasing menu over a functional one.

Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to play, the interface was really confusing and there wasn't feed back when I was clicking on things so wasn't sure what else to do.

Hard to understand but nice mechanics, graphics and presentation.

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.
