Great art style and the guitar background music was a nice touch. I got 5700 (after turning the targets up to the max).

I was never sure what made for a good difficulty setting, so I just made the target and penalty balloons options (with, of course, unclear labels based on my variable/function names). You can totally game the system.

Yay 5000 pointrs :) You should add a little bit more difficulty, maybe moving ballon :)

I loved the music sooo much. Its a great game as well, though very easy. I featured it in my video compilation of Ludum Dare 27 games, if you would like to check it out :)

Pop. Pop pop pop. I liked this. Fun, and while it's timed it's not quite as frantic or panicky as lots of other games, especially with the soothing music.

Interesting art style and music. Very effective. Didn't understand why you have to wait 10 sec every 20 sec though. Also, it would be nice if you hide the mouse cursor.

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.
