Blue Square Loves Gold

by nicotr014 - Jam Entry


WASD to control the blue square. The square loves coins and has 10 seconds to collect a coin before dying :(. Small coins will add 5 seconds to your time.

There are only 4 levels. Most things don't work.. Glad it's over :) Phew.

Jerks like hell but a great concept. Nibbles with obstacles!

A nicely executed, simple game. Well done.

Very good concept and execution, it's pretty fun to play! The graphics could use some polish, though. Good job and keep at it! :)

I feel like if you had more time to spend on this you could really make some interesting levels to take advantage of the blue trails, still good work!

While the 10-second checkpoint concept is a bit restricting, I did like the use of the blue trail to limit your movement, especially on the 4th level. Good job!

I really enjoyed your game and I hope that you keep working on it. Maybe the blue-colored squares will get some function in future releases :)

Keep going! You can do a lot of things with this basic concept. The controls felt a bit stuck here.

I like the Snake-like concept of leaving trails and collecting items. Too bad you ran out of time for more!

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.
