Spent a lot of time just trying to get further and further! Very nicely designed game imo! Oh...and we have to break up! ;P

It's pretty well executed. The basic idea isn't groundbreaking, although it was nice having some things attack from the side. You had a good variety of hazards to tackle, and the difficulty ramp was pretty good.

There are some nice, old-school sounds. It was rewarding to absorb the blocks as you passed them by, but it is a little mixed-signal-sending. My first time through, I thought I was supposed to go and collect them...until I died. Even after that lesson, there's still this weird feeling that you get when you are trying to avoid them and they suddenly start coming toward you.

It was pretty addicting.

Great overall experience! Nice graphics with cool music and good game flow. Game mechanics should be explained, I tried to pick up the cubes and died all the time in the beginning^_^

Those blocks confused me at first. I thought there were two kinds. Good 'aha!' moment when I figured it out.

Fun game with good graphical and audio atmosphere. The "10 seconds" theme is unfortunately not enough hilighted

Everything was really smooth and polished. The gameplay was fun and addicting, though I wish there were checkpoints so you don't have to redo the easy levels. I wish I was good enough to see the end, if there is one.

Feels very good to play(smooth as hell) and is A LOT of fun ^_^ Except for the low theme incorporation it's perfect.

Simple game, and at the same time fun and addicting. I like how the sound effects blend with music.

Great job! :D

The idea behind this is pretty basic, but it's executed so well that it's hard not to like. Really nice and simple graphics, too!

Aug 27, 2013 @ 11:35pm

I really like the aesthetics, and the sound design is great! I really got into this.

Never thought "avoid stuff" would be so much fun! Definitely one of the better entries!

I like the concept,that you have to avoid the objects first, but gaining them as your score afterwards. Super addictive! Awesome story ;)

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 ( 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.
