I liked it. Audio was a bit simple (but fit for purpose) and the gravity was a bit off but apart from that it was fun. Nice game for wasting some time :D

Quite simple and pretty much what you would expect from a 10s platformer. I really feel that the game needs some kind of gimmick to make it interesting though.

Very simple game but the audio and graphics gave it a certain charm that made it interesting to play through a few levels.

This was actually a lot of fun. The level design got pretty creative.

Great level design, though wasn't very innovative.

A good, classic platform puzzle. Well done on making so many levels! The physics felt weird to me (constant velocity in every direction with no acceleration), but that's entirely up to you. :)

This was enjoyable! The only negative I found was the jumping button, which seemed unresponsive/strange at times. The positives were that I got nervous most of the time, and it was pretty fun to go through the levels.

Aah, fellow GameMaker programmer. Quite fun :) Aaargh :D The gravity could be a little stronger.

Read your postmortem. You did a fine job here. The jump physics need a little work, but you know that. Push on and keep learning and making small games. You're on your way!

Pretty fun, nice and simple. The collision was a little frustrating however it was still a nice play. good job.

Simple game but the level design is quite good!

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.
