Nice job! Would have been nice to get a few more mechanics into the game :)

Thanks for playing the game :) And happy you liked it. Trying to learn a better way to generate more levels, so that more time can be spent on adding for example bonuses :)

Cool idea, wish it was longer and had more variations.

Aw man, is there any way you can include love2d in the download?

@Feysoura Amended, hopefully it works for you.

I agree with the others, more levels would be good. But as is, still a good game!

Cool concept. I like the music you were able to generate with cfxr, I gave up trying to make a background loop for mine with it!

@Jason, the music was made with autotracker which just spits out music. Generate music until you find something you like.

Nice game, finished it! Some traps or portals would have been nice.

OMG best game so far! The concept is awesome, and music is really nice for ears! GOOD JOB!

Nice work. One thing I would consider is adding some degree of punishment. The flashlight only having ten seconds of battery isn't too bad since you can just grope your way around the world to win. If there were things that had to be avoided (pits, etc.), that'd make the battery life more precious.

Nice game, a bit too simplistic and the fact that the battery does not reset at each level makes it hard to use.

@Latcarf, there are two difficulty levels. When you play on easy you get at full battery for each level.

Controls are okay, but it should allow me to move when I'm touching the walls. This would make it easier to get through tiny wall openings.
It's good that the game continues when your battery runs out, but there should be some sort of checkpoint where you can go back to there with a full charged battery.
I was playing in Normal Level.

An appealing recreational game. I appreciated that the 10 seconds were mine to use up, but would have enjoyed a bit of a "celebration" when I reached the exit on each level.

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.
