GAMESPOT PLAYED THIS ON INDIE HOUR. :D Watch at 36 minutes into the clip:

You play as the captain of a spaceship and you are just about to find what you have been seeking for so long. The source of the mastery of space.

Unfortunately we only had time to make two levels! The physics for the first one took almost a day (12 hours) alone.

Thank you all!
@finefin: There are only two levels, and if you do beat them, you'll get an outro too!

Wow, 5 for mood in this one, very cool. I couldn't past the fire though, I thought maybe getting all the coins would do it but there's one coin about half way down the first level I can't seem to get and keep going. Great game though!

i'm impressed by the level of detail. multi-platform, an intro, the game ticks all the boxes. great game.

I love the mechanic. Fun gameplay but kinda tough. Great work!

Nice game, the mechanics are fun and intuitive, and the music makes it pretty immersive.
It's just a bit too punishing to retry from the beginning at the least error/ especially when you have to wait for the player to stop against a wall... Apart from that, well done!

Having to quit the game and restart from the beginning and watch the intro after each failure is really annoying. Great music though.

Wait for the ball to stop, it will automatically reset!

Took me a couple tries to figure out that I could get past the first level by collecting all the coins. It would be nice to have a "warm up" level or two that demonstrates that you need the coins, and how some of the tricks work. I couldn't quite beat the second level though. In response to your question, my IRC nick is "depp".

Well, each level was meant to be different, so there would be no more ball rolling coin collecting levels anyhow.

@Royal Railway: the ball didn't stop, or at least it didn't look like it would.

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.
