Not bad! Reminds me of Karoshi Suicide Salesman. The game has an issue after losing, restarting doesn't reset the 10 second death timer.
Great job finishing!

Cool game with smooth controls! The levels could've been harder I think.

Alright game, controls were a little off here on Mac. Played well though, good job!

The concept totally reminds me of Karoshi.
Anyway, this really, REALLY needed more variety. And it's WAY too easy. I didn't even fail once. :|
Overall, nice job though.

Good concept! I think you need more (difficult) levels with more gameplay variations (for instance fading platforms, stuff that, if you touch it, teleports you somewhere, etc.)

I liked the graphics and the movement :P Good luck!

Alright, so there were a few collision glitches here and there, and it would have been great if there were more features, but it plays very nicely already and I played all the way through with no problems. Plus the concept is pretty funny. Nice stuff - and doing this with 100% pure java is impressive ;-)

This is a pretty cool idea! I got stuck in level 3 under the blocks, loved the graphic but it didnt look like a robot... Also, fraps wouldnt record it, so I couldnt include it in my LD27 Compilation video... sorry

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.
