This is really fantastic, the screenshot prepared me for the pong part but it's all awesome insanity afterwards. Nice work, this is the best I've played so far :)

This is not a game, it's a trip into... I'm not sure what exactly :)
I had no idea what the hell I was doing but I was having fun while doing it.

I overlooked this game at first, thinking it was just pong. Foolish me - what a great concept!

It was very nice to see the game evolve over time. Good job :)

Woha, i love how someone always made a better version of my idea! I've used a really similar concept, but i loved your execution! Upvoted! :D

What a surprise. At first I thought "oh yeah, pong." and after I scored the first time, the game gets very interesting. Nice look and feel!

[Spoiler] The ending proves: games get better with zombies!

What started off as a simple pong clone evolved into something quite unique and very enjoyable. Great job!

Awesome. This is great. Love the progression - was confused a bit that the ball was still going when it switched to flags. Loved the visuals and sounds. Pulled here by the 10s video. Excellent!

Hahaha. I didn't expect that!

Couldn't run it. When I launch it, it shows nothing but an icon, then turns black. When I click it it says it doesn't respond.

Would be cool to see the gameplay evolve even more with more goals. :)

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.
