Best game ever. I was laughing as as soon as Rainbow block started speaking 'cause I knew what she was about to say.

The only bit I didn't get was coolness, gonna go max that out now.

Coolness = Overall DPS

Pretty fun game! It would be nice not to have to watch the cutscene every time after you buy upgrades, but that was a minor annoyance, thanks to the skip button.

Wouldn't run for me; said it encountered a problem and needed to close :(((

Nice Game, I really enjoyed playing it for some runs and the "cutscenes" are well made!

Great game. The upgrades worked well to add replay value and the gameplay was quick and responsive.

Pretty fun! And I wonder where you got the idea from... ;)

This one gets humor in my book.
Using quotes in a game, nice one.

Was fun but I didn't complete it.

Nice! We have almost the same concept with repeating until you beaten it ^^

I'm a sucker for upgrade mechanics. Plus rainbows. I played this longer than I would admit.

Really nice, but gets boring after a few rounds

It doesn't run on my Windows 7 64bit. I don't get any error :(.

Great game! Really unique. Love the upgrades.

Completely bonkers and creative, love it! Maxxed out everything but just not good enough to complete it. Me=epic fail.

Really nice entry - best I've played yet I think. Good sense of humour, but most it just had really compulsive gameplay. I completed it once and accidentally skipped the final cutscene, so had to go back to complete it again to see what happened - not a complaint though as there aren't many LD games I'd want to complete right through twice in a row :)

Great game. The only thing It'd have been nice for there to be a "cost" listed for the upgrades. Otherwise great job on the mechanics. Kind of reminds me of the cloud-rolling level of Katamari.

Nice entry. (FYI - "RainbowBlock.exe" crashes when you click "Skip" or when intro ends; "RainbowBlock_noMusic.exe" works good)

Pretty fun, loved the variety in the upgrades.

Very funny game. Doesn't actually need a "-" button in the upgrades screen.

You actually turned photoshop-erasing-with-a-low-opacity into a game. Not very fun to play, but really funny!

That was pretty fun, I liked the upgrade system, really added a lot to the game. Graphics were nice to look at, it played well. Nice one.

Time travel silly! lol, really funny xD Kinda frustrating that you just have to lose lots of times before getting enough stats to beat it

Love the brony love. Great game, made my smile. I featured it in my LD27 compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out

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.
