Well, *only* a number guessing game is a bit too minimalistic for my taste. There's just nothing creative in here.

Adorable little console game. And by far the smallest file size EVER at about 3kb. :D

Really minimalistic. Also i'm surprised it's a .bat script, had to run virtualbox with windows to test it :)

This game fits the theme very well; you have a large range to search and you each guess you make can pretty much half it, so the player "minimizes" the game space until s/he gets it as small as possible. Very cool. It wasn't too fun as I could use the same strategy pretty much all the time and the result of this kind of game is more chance than skill based. But that just supports the theme even more so... Well done! Also using the command line is very minimal in a sense of what is running the game.

Props for dropping a .bat as a game XD

It won't run on Unix systems, you'll need to learn and use .sh which is the unix equivalent

This sort of game was one of the first I wrote in basic on my Apple IIe. Nostalgia!

I think you nailed the theme... which unfortunately doesn't mean you made something enjoyable!

Great start. For a beginner this is pretty solid.

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.
