I often died right as I hit a controll switch point, but other then that the game was rather fun!

Good game except it was very hard from the start maybe make the beginning easier and have it get harder? also didnt like that the jump key is also the respawn key.
oh and windowed doesnt work, but the game was fun.

Arrghgh! Frustrating as hell! Great concept and the different variation on the player ability (like moving backwards in level 2) was very well done... maybe I didn't get far enough, but... why no checkpoints? Why do I have to start over when I die? A baddie like me will never finish this :P

Great entry, good luck!

Ha, loved the ending!

Tried using it on OSX, it says that the application is damaged or incomplete. :s

I think my coordination is too rubbish to be good at this. Really stylish art here, although I doubt I saw half of it as I found the platforming (even on easy) to be really hard :(

Like the idea tho and a nice execution.

Oh no fdevant, we're so sorry! It was kind of a hail mary, we've only been able to test the web and the Windows versions, because those are the platforms we have.
We put out the client to the others just in case it worked, again, so sorry!

Damn 10 seconds, now I'm addicted to this! Great game! Loved the twisted controls mechanic.

Love the "Fuck death" option :P
Neat concept! But I found Easy mode to be quite tough. Often lost at the point of switching. But that must be awful co-ordination skills! :P

Wow, surprising how difficult that flip of controls can be :0) Innovative for sure. Great job!

Not bad. I liked the style, but the game was hard! (Not that that's necessarily a bad thing)

The control switch really threw me, which was a good thing! Kept me on my toes and was very enjoyable. Great aesthetic and the audio in particular was very effective.

Love the switch in the middle. And the attitude of this game :D Also nice work with the level-generation!

A very fun game. I love the variety of settings, music, and mechanics. The levels are just the right length to take advantage of the 10-second theme. You did a really excellent job.

Dead. Jump, walk...walk..dead. Yep, I suck at this game. Oh well, it's still an interesting interpretation. Nice that each area is a little different. I also appreciate that your little guy changes. :)

Despite being awful at this I got far enough to flip the controls a few times, which is a really REALLY snazzy idea.

More games need to run the sentiment of 'fuck death' so openly.

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.
