Good effort.

Got to level 11, good game. I think you should've reseted the timer to 10 instead of adding 10 seconds to it, I ended up having too much spare time!

Good fun! I really liked the way that the levels just sort of continued. The character stays in the same place and the level changes around her. Thanks!

simple to the point game, but very clean graphics and movements
I like it quite a lot actually! played it a fair amount!

Nice platformer game. I thought dying was a little harsh though, it would have been better had you made it so when you die, you were sent back to the beginning of the current level, and have 5 seconds deducted from your time. Still, nice game :)

Didn't work on Windows 7 64 bits. :(

The cumulative timer is neat, but I think it makes the game a bit too easy. Also, you may want to swap the debug build to the release build. Anyway, good job, next time add some sounds though. :)

Fun and not that easy as you may think. You should upload "Release" version instead of "Debug" ;)

Now it's realease and no Debug :)
Thanks for your comment.

Very cool game, some jumps that required precision are pretty hard, but satisfying once you get them right. The graphics really fit the game.

Looks like we got the same idea about making platformers and giving the player 10 secs to beat them :P

Fun little game. It was pretty good how in each level, you start off where you finished the last level. Had too much spare time at the end though :D. Good job!

A decent game, reminding me of older times of simple graphics. Triggering a jump feels a bit weird and I can't always jump when I intend to, but other than that controls are tight and feel good.

Makes Fun *-*
Wall jumping would be cool!

Gyncoca says ...

At the start we have wall jump, but level it's too small to be usefull.

I like the idea, but the graphics need some more love. :)

What a basic game !

I felt like a ninja trying to get through the levels as fast as possible. Controls could use some tweaking. I liked how the level changed "around" you with the player staying in position.

Simple fun game, interesting idea with continuing levels, took me by surprise sometimes :P

Nice how some of the levels shared the beginning with the end of the previous one.

Restarting form the beginning on death is a bit too harsh. You should be able to keep trying until you run out of time.

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 ( 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.
