If this is a rar file on dropbox, why is it marked as Web?

Spencer Alves says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:43pm

"Uncaught Error: SecurityError: DOM Exception 18" in Chromium

Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:43pm

I don't think a 'rar' is a web playable format now, is it?

Asar Dhandala says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:45pm

The .rar file has the html file along with the assets.
Internet Explorer is recommended.

Nice approach of the Theme.

For the web version, you can paste a link of your index.html with dropbox so we can play directly without to have to download it ;)

Thank you Anoarith. Will do as you recommended. :)

I can't load the game

Recid, try using Internet Explorer. (Click 'Allow' when prompted of using Scripts)

I guess because it was a javascript html thingy

This worked fine on Mac/Safari. I wasn't sure of the 7/5 distinction on minutes and hours; the slow clocks (hours) reset the level and the middle clocks (minutes) seem to ignore you. Once you realize the 10 fast (seconds) clocks are the only ones not moving the game gets easier.

aquilicoco, try using Internet Explorer.

What is the issue with chrome? DOMException 18 sounds like you access canvas pixeldata after drawing external (local) images onto it. Hosting the files directly on dropbox or any server should fix this bug and make this game playable for all those who are interessted. Had the same problem in my LD #25 game. Some can not use Internet Explorer (Linux) :)

This was fun! It took me a little while to collect the clocks that I needed to win. I kept getting frustrated when I had one more clock to collect and then I get a hit by another that came from the side! lol. idk, maybe have the sides closed off and have the clocks bumping off the walls?

It was fun though, good job!

Asar Dhandala says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 3:20pm

GagaPete, thank you for your suggestion.
I apologize everyone for the inconvenience as it's my first Ludum Dare Jam so had to figure out how everything works.

Web link works for every browser! Have fun!

AAHHH! So many clocks! So much ticking! Interesting little game though.

Good job.

Nice take on the theme! And pretty good for a 3-hr game. :) I got smashed by a lot of clocks, but eventually overcame.

At first I was wondering what I was looking for , I liked having to figure out what I had to avoid. This is a very interesting concept, I enjoyed the idea. Graphically it set a good tone. The time ticking made it seem depressing lol

Diptoman says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 4:47pm

Great job on this! The ticking sound is a very nice touch :D
I found it a bit hard to maneuver around the clocks with the momentum though. But it adds to the skill required.
Its amazing to know that you made this all on your own!

Works fine in Chromium (on Linux). I did feel quite chuffed with myself once I worked out the riddle to the clocks, although I might just be a bit slow on the uptake. Nice painterly graphics and overall mood. :-)

Asar Dhandala says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 5:52pm

Thank you everyone!
I'm glad that everyone is actually taking time and solving the riddle at first :)

Now I could actually play and it is really funny. Good job, especially the art is pretty cool.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 7:37pm

Good use of theme and a good idea. I like the graphics too they work really well with it.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 9:17pm

Very good theme and funny, this one caught me by surprise!

Impressive game for 3 hours of work. Nice level of difficulty as well. Took a few attempts, but didn't make me want to break things.

I don't know if it's intentional or not, but the way the ticking sounds build on top of each other after every restart really makes the game for me. Each death feels like it adds that much more tension with just sound. Really excellent choice of sound effects for the game!

Interesting concept.

all that ticking! SMEE!!! Someone stop that ticking!!

:D Good job!

Asar Dhandala says ...

Thank you mklee. Yeah, it was intentional. ;)

The controls were too slippery for me. I like the concept, and it looks like the beginning of an interesting art style.
The ticking sounds make it :)

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.
