by Shaun Inman - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Only had about 4 hours to spend on this simple, silent rhythm game this weekend. Hit space when the small box overlaps a larger one. Miss a beat and the line shrinks, effectively upping the tempo. Hit enter to restart. (There is no difficulty curve. Each "bar" is randomly generated.)

It gets difficult pretty quickly, but It's a great execution for such a short amount of time spent. Thanks for sharing this.

Pity you didn't have more time, with some music and evolution on the concept i'd gather it would've been one of the top theme fitting games. For the time spent it's a nice prototype.

It is a little bit too difficult, my best time was about twentie seconds or something, I liked the idea and graphics.

Interesting idea, but you can cheat by mashing space.
Fun little game, good work ;)

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.
