Nice clean looks! Would be more interesting if you could affect the angle the ball leaves in by moving the paddle at the right moment.

A little more of velosity at the beginning it will good.

Hm... this is basically Breakout without blocks to break... Or Pong where the other paddle is replaced by a wall. Not terribly fun or intersting.

Minimalism as a theme seems to have turned out a lot of really depressing games. This one makes me feel like I am just waiting for a friend to come over and play with me but they never come and I just end up giving up.

Wish the game progressed a little bit faster, was feeling impatient for a bit, but i like the idea.

A classic old-school Ping (one player Pong) game, but with an unexpected twist!

This was really interesting. Due to the investment in getting into the harder part, you actually get nervous of not messing it up as it gets more and more faster. Cool idea indeed. The movement was very smooth also.

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.
