The physics are so cool in this, the grappling system's great. I like the theme too, very Majora's Masky.

Nice mechanics and drawings, simple but effective.

Controls were really hard for this. I always like rewind features...

I have no real idea on how the controls are working and what to do. It is too fast and too obscure for me. But I like the aesthetic of graphics and effects.

Not sure how to control it - it moves too fast for my eyes.

o.O What is this I don't even... xD I liked the simple aesthetics and the premise... and also the fact I didn't know what to do... it was a gun kind of ignorance, I guess :P?

It took some time before I found you could speed grapple, but otherwise I loved it!

Played the Web version, too confusing I didn't get what to do. Sorry.

It was really confusing for me too. Even after I realized how to move quickly and so on, I wasn't sure what's the point :-/

The aesthetics are nice. The controls are too difficult to collect all of them in time I found.

The graphics were amazing, the concept was elegant, and the game was beautiful; well done!

Found this game to be a bit... odd? But, I featured it in my video compilation of Ludum Dare 27 games, if you would like to check it out,

I had trouble with the controls at first (I thought there was some kind of bug), but later I got the hang of it somewhat. It was pretty cool to play and with a bit of work on the controls (not SOOO fast) it's a very cool mechanic too!

I had troubles with the grappling system, but I still managed to get the four pieces and save the moon.
I really liked the rewind option, although it feels that we can't loose.

I couldnt get on top of the first platform. Wont Jump high enough. Shift to rewind time is cool.

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.
