Good game! Fun little racey mind teaser! So far too, this is one of the better uses of the theme that I've seen so far! =)

Awesome game and clever use of the theme on a well known problem. There's a bug though. Get 200bp,use the right bpability and then the left one - logical freeze. other than that it played great on my android phone. Well done!

Hi, tiptipgames! Sadly, I can't reproduce bug you described. Any additional info? Could you misunderstand behaviour of right bp-ability? It freezes game until you tap on empty cell. Thanks!

Anyway, there is a bug in logic: right bonus can't be used if there is no empty cells

Great game, very addictive! It was a bit confusing at first, but once I understood the game mechanics I played it for a while. Also good use of the bonuses.

This worked really well, but it was way too hard. I just ended up clicking random blocks and getting angry, kinda like what I do when I encounter a rubik's cube.

That being said, with some polish and maybe a tutorial level, this could be a really great game. Nice work, especially for 48 hours.

Nice simple game, wasnt too hard but very addictive! I featured it in my Ludum Dare compilation series, if you'd like to take a look :)

Cool puzzle game. At first I thought it was an action-oriented game to touch the screen as fast as possible to get rid of the red and green blocks, but now I see that this is a tactical game. Nice work!

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.
