PotatoMan want to save world, but you'll not finish the game!

by Threef - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Warring! This game is IMPOSSIBLE to finish! I mean really! There's no end!

Your goal is to play as long as you can! 'Till rage quit!
Everytime you get hit time goes back by 10 seconds.

I am sorry. 10 seconds it's a great theme, but my idea wasn't that good. Level is not finished. I've made it imposible so you can not see not finished part.

The idea is nice. It would be grand if you could actually influence what happens during rewind. Right now it's basically a kind of checkpoint system.

Also, when you get hit before the first 10 seconds are gone, it gets stuck in a loop.

The controls could need a workover, they're a bit too floaty for my taste.

I like the idea of going back in time when hit. It can be good or bad to get hit depending on where you were in the level 10 seconds ago.

Okay game, I don't know WHY you did AABB collision on the character, but perfect pixel would have been much more suited. Good try on this, it was not executed well. It seems like you tried to do some time travel thing? It was not done well, but nice try.

The sound was nice, I would have liked a jump an things. Anyway, pretty good work. Keep it up.

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.
