by tudd - 48 Hour Compo Entry


I think it's like This Is The Only Level, except with less elephants and more circles.

42 different "You Lose" messages
16 levels you will never ever finish
Crap music
Arrow key controls

Made in about 12 hours with processing.
All sound made in Audiotool (I hope you like the 808)

Known bugs:
Audio stutters on level 1 (this is a hotfix for a much worse sync issue)

Both of the Windows links link to the same file

Nice sounds and quite quickly done too. Bonus points for so many messages. Simple and easy controls, but you only get points for moving than surviving? is that intentional?

Nice particle effects! And the sounds aren't nearly as bad as you make them out to be.

TBH it's not an especially memorable concept, but all of the messages elevated it into a more interactive thing than it would have been without it. Good job!

Well, I liked the graphics, the sounds where listenable, and it's a nice game, to be done in 48h.

@malactus moving around a lot does give you more points, but being on a high level does too!

@tomaszmf95 yes they do. Windows32 works under Windows64

@skittles heh thanks

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.
