Flingel is a simple Flash-based game where the object is to score points by flinging a little pixel through a randomly-generated landscape, using nothing but the mouse.

Good fun, although I find easy mode hard. Little detail like the pixel squishes as you pull back is nice.

Great fun game! Just make it full screen! When you want to fling the pixel with higher angle you cannot see your last shot!

Challenging and fun game!
Graphic is simple but refined (with good gfx).
A nice work! :)

Pretty addictive game - like Zammy said, you can't always see your previous shot when trying to get to higher platforms, so a different camera view, or maybe a dynamic camera view, could be helpful. Might also be neat to have coins or something similar that follow an arc from one platform center to the next, giving you something to aim for. Fun stuff!

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.
