Balance is a puzzle game about balance weights in two zones (white zone and black zone).

1. Left click on numbered tile to select it.
2. Use A-D to move the selected tile.
3. Try to balance the weight in blank and white zones moving the tiles.
4. The number inside tile shows it's current weight.

Thanks for playing... :) I hope you like it

Okay this is really awesome. At first I was kind of turned off by the presentation and some of the controls, but once I got passed the first level I had a lot of fun with the sounds and the balancing mechanics. Could be a really fun game if drawn out.

Really fun, cool idea. Good use of theme. Sounds got a little annoying to me but still liked it a lot!

Pretty good game. A bit simple after a while but still fun.

It's an idea I would never thought about :)

Games like this always make me feel like an idiot, but in a good way. It's really clever, and I'm ashamed to admit I passed most of the levels by blindly moving tiles around until something worked.

Made for much smarter folks than me, I think. But very good! Great interpretation of the theme.

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.
