Woah that flashing lol. Pretty fun little game and I like the music. One thing that I found annoying is that if you move your block against the left side of the screen and keep moving the mouse left a little afterwards, when you want to move it back again you have to move it that extra amount before it will respond.

Whoa... i normally don't have any troubles with flashy colors, but I feel that if i played this for an hour, i would get foam coming out of my mouth. Simple but incredibly addictive, I love the different effects and how the music ties everything together. Great game!

Well done! You had the same idea as me but quite different result :) I like how it plays.

The audio cut out after a few restarts - was that intentional?

Excellent use of audio and visuals to set the mood, and nice, tight controls. I think the difficulty curve is a bit steep, though. The color barrage made me feel very strange after a few minutes of playing -- perhaps a less random assortment could be used to intentionally shape the player's mood.

I didn´t see this fucking <EPILEPSY WARNING>, hehe. Great game, so funny, could take more time to accelerate... but Great!

I've just finished playing a very similar entry, both used the audio as a feedback for the pacing, the main mechanic was to avoid obstacles, but like this one better. The design, the epilepsy warning were a thoughtful way to incorporate humorous elements, the music was also dynamic, the background colors felt fresh.
Good job!

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.
