Hmm, it seemed difficult to get triggering a hit on the blue square. Also way too short! Could use some more levels. Nice colors though.

I don't really get the rules. I try to reach the blue square but on the third level I always end up going game over. Plus I don't really what the other blocks in the environment do.

I was unable to emulate it under Linux Mint 15 64bit using Wine.

I don't get the rules either, the block seems to go through stuff, but I keep getting killed.

Nice. As others have said, gameplay was a bit confusing.

Is the game finished? Walking straight towards the battery isn't a lot of fun. Aren't those things supposed to be walls?

I don't entirely understand what happend here.

At first I tried to stay away from the walls, but then I could walk through them.

I got one level, then I lost one, then I beat the game.

Looks good, but playing confuses me greatly.

Other blocks playing your time. If you always touch other, blocks you lose time.

I want to try it out but it refuses to run... Win 8 64 bit. I have Love2d installed.

Hmm.. wait, I'll try compiling it myself :)

graphic design is very good. but only 3 levels and confusing gameplay is a big downside.

there should be a timer notification of some kind to see the energy you have left.

Ok, got it to run but I wonder if the timer resets properly.. maybe adding a counter would have helped?

Thanks guys. I will try to make it better.

I had to compile it myself since the exe doesn't work on 64bit machines.

The graphics looked pretty cool.
But it was a little bit confusing since there was neither an explanation nor some feedback on what happened and how you exactly lose.

Rather confusing. I couldn't tell what would trigger failure nor what would trigger success. I figured that the blue square was the goal, but it wasn't at all generous with deciding when you're on the goal or not.

I am also etting the DevIL.dll error. Win7 64Bit SP1.

After finding the right combination of devIL.dll and sdl.dll on my HDD, I could eventually play the game.
I like the graphics, but I can't understand why I can walk through walls. :/

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.
