Very nice. The levels feel nice and it gets really tense when you know your time is running out. Good job!

I downloaded the linux version (because I use linux) and opened up KOTR.swf in the flash player, but my screen isn't big enough. I usally do my games in 640x480. This looks like it would've been a fun game if I could get things to work, though.

Pretty cool! Would play a lot better with variable jump height though, I think (release jump button to start falling).

Overall: I'm a pixelart enthusiastic and game is enjoyable, but in overall, it can't be called a good game. I respect the effort anyway. Good luck next time!

Innovation: a single time-based platformer. Without the theme, it wouldn't be more than a poorly made platformer.

Fun: Lvl1-13 are easy - I loved the vertical use of boxes. That was surprisingly clever! On Lvl14, boxes doesn't have physics, and going on is impossible.

Theme: you have 10 seconds to finish the level. Kinda general. I felt the lack of a timer to show, how much time you have left, but enjoyable even without it.

Graphics: player looks very nice, but poorly animated. Main screen is OK. Other textures aren't worth even the mention.

Audio: two sounds and an odd menu music. What else I have to say?

Humor: player looks like a derpy kid.

Mood: absolute nothing.

@Katamori I'm not sure if you meant that lvl 15 is actually impossible or it is just hard. Not a single level is impossible. Every level can be beaten.

@Steve I think I will continue to work on the game. I will probably implement something like a fall button.

@Misson20000 You can run the game in your browser of choice by dragging an open browser window.

@tower07 Thank you :D

@Katamori, also the boxes on Lvl 14 are what I call ghost crates, you can check the source code for them. Lvl 15 has them as well...

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.
