10 seconds

by cschwartz - 48 Hour Compo Entry

10 seconds is a puzzle/reflex game with an extremely unimaginative title.
I hope you find the gameplay to be more enjoyable than my choice of title.

Interesting game. I think that the mechanics seem pretty enjoyable. Good job.

I like the concept, I think I would've preferred it if I could've placed the arrows before the countdown, now it's quite difficult. But I guess that's the idea. Fun little game.

Addictive! Very fun. Would have been nice to have had some audio though. :)

Pretty fun, I enjoyed this click-intense action, puzzles are fine too.

Placing the tiles in time got a bit irritating, especially with the speed of the purple arrow. Although I suppose that's where the difficulty in the game is I suppose.

The game also seems to not fit in my screen which could explain why I found it really frustrating when I had to get another tile from the left top corner and then move the mouse down to place it.

With a bit of balancing this could be a pretty good game :)

Pretty nice concept and puzzles, although it would be nice to be able to select the movers via 1-9 keys

Nice game! Good length, and the puzzles got interesting by the end. One thing though, the game would be a LOT less frustrating if you were able to place arrows during the initial countdown...

Nice! That there is a solid puzzle progression, and the tension imposed by the 10 second time limit is well balanced.

Very amusing, fun puzzles!

I like the fact that you can't place the arrows until the timer starts. It adds pressure that helps differentiate this from similar puzzle games.

I like the concept and I like how it was executed. Good job.

Good puzzle. Has a potential to become something popular.

Cool concept! I missed "Restart" button. Because when I missclicked one of my arrows I want to restart level instantly. Great game.

Interesting puzzle game, I believe it should not have put such a heavy focus on the clunky use of items.

Very challenging! Nice idea, although I missed some music and a restart button ;)

Quite a fun game, very challenging though. Great job, I featured it in my Ludum dare compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :)

I like this type of puzzle games, it brings back memories of some stages in zelda or pokemon.
Is enjoyable, and I found some puzzles creative.
On the gameplay part I had hard time trying to placing the tile modifiers. If you iterate over this in the future I think that in this area there is room to improve.

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.
