Go fast and get to the end before time runs out, all while listening to the smoothest muzak money didn't buy.

Left and Right to move, Space can double Jump.

Interesting! Couldn't get much past 72000 score or to the end, since it's very fast paced. The music is great! The game screen seems to vibrate sometimes very you actually start the round, but that's just a visual thing. Fun!

I. Love. This. Music. I don't know why but this was extremely fun! The art style is pretty snazzy and fits the music in its own special way.

I like the general feeling of this game, the whole nature is fun thing. I have not seen the end, but I did reach a score of approx 80,000. And I found a secret in the game.

Cool! My best was 74,438. Sound could be a little better and some minor collision bugs but in all a cool fun game. Good Job!

Addictive little thing!

There's just something about elevator music and playing as a cat having a seizure..

Nice and simple. And is that a cuica in the music? My high score was 75000, and I don't think I could score much higher. It might be more interesting if there were time bonus pickups.

Graphics were ok looking but I think you used the 10 second concept in a very cliche way... Also, I would love to have some feedback on my entry!

Awesome little game, music is good. I rated it highly. :)

I like the music, it made running less stressful as runner games tend to be. I tend to get stuck at the top of houses which can be difficult to get out of, but I suppose that's part of the challenge. Overall, a really good running game.

@Brian Stegmann that was a cat? Can we verify this? :P

Honestly I'm not entirely sure what it is. I was sort of thinking a bomb maybe, but then I didn't do anything like add in a fuse. It's up for interpretation I suppose.

A little too easy to get caught on things and hung up, otherwise a fun little game! :)

Strange little character - like a rolling bobomb. I like it. Is there some way to increase your time, or do you only get the ten seconds? I couldn't get very far.

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.

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.
