I love it ! The concept of being my own partner thru the levels is really nice ! Cant past level 8, me and my other self aren't good enough hehe. The what can happened in 10 seconds is a nice touch. Good music too!

Really cool idea, I love the self-cooperation-aspect of it.

At first it took me a while to get it (dummy me), but then it was really fun zooming around, battling counters assisted by my past self. Very cool concept and execution. Kudos!

This is the most interesting and fun concept I've seen!

It's fun watching 4 cursor fly around clicking on everything :P

Amazing work!

Neat puzzle game, played to the end. Needs to have a way to reset completely so I can start fresh when that dolt I'm playing with screws up. Or if it already has that, the dolt I've been playing with didn't tell me. :P

Damn, a game on Ludum Dare that made me actually think. I don't mean about puzzles, I mean about life... didn't expect that. (And please don't expect it from my games). If there were a category "Motivational" to vote on, you would get 5/5 stars.

@klianc09: This is probably the best comment I've ever received. Thank you

Some riddles are definitely smart. Music is the best part imho, why solving riddles when you can just dance to such a tune?

Very different concept. Good game :)

Really interesting game, wouldn't have thought of this myself!

Aug 29, 2013 @ 4:45am

Nice idea. Nice music. A bit too much waiting and too many of the solutions was simply to wait. It did have some interesting levels though.

Aug 29, 2013 @ 7:33am

Great Job. Incredibly satisfying to work along side my other mouse clicks. Created some great puzzles. Well done! :0)

This game has nice messages, you really have a point there :D ... Loved the music, and great gameplay. Nice game :D

Very good over all. Though I did not fiinish. Got a little too frustrating after a few levels. Nice presentation, not too bad.

The messages are great. A clever way to include the theme. The gameplay is also pretty enjoyable. Good job.

Sep 6, 2013 @ 6:10am

Amazing!! Just brilliant!
Mind-blowingly innovative with a terrific message. This is the best use of the theme I've seen this Ludum!
Loved it!

Sep 6, 2013 @ 6:51pm

I was totally overwhelmed, when the second cursor from the past came up and I got how well the messages fit

I stopped on 4th level because my arm has been hurting lately and I didn't want to make it worse D: interesting idea though

I didn't understand it at first, but it became very engaging once I did.

I really like how you developed this. You effectively demonstrated both the insignificance and the power of 10 seconds in a clear and engaging way. My only major suggestion would be to allow the replay to happen even if the player hit one of the obstacles.

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.
