The game did work for me, but "How to play" did nothing. Game appeared a few seconds after starting, that was irritating.

If you can't click the buttons, try moving the game window to the top left of the screen (it seems like it uses screen coordinates instead of window coordinates).

It also appears that the black screen is what you get for loosing (you run out of time).

Anyway, the idea could work, but I think it should be less luck-based.

After some problem getting the game to work at all the game itself is kind of lacking in content.

The controls keep getting stuck it seems to happen when you hold both directions at once and let go of one of them.

Screen resolution changed nothing, top-left corner - still nothing. Clicked everywhere on the screen (since I assumed it would check the mouse location, instead of the actual buttons), still nothing. Also, there are no screenshots of the actual game, so I can't rate your entry at all, 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.
