I'm loving the idea of a quick "reaction" battle between two players. I'd love to try this out with a friend! And in fact I think I will tomorrow.

I'm having trouble understanding the scoring. I would like to see a "How To" menu or something when it comes to something like this.

Good idea to integrate the theme like this!

Nice looking, and clever idea for a quick 2 player game. You do need 2 people to enjoy this, it would have been nicer a 1 player mode as well.

An odd sort of game, but nice. I wish that there was an AI mode, but 72 hours is 72 hours. Very intriguing entry.

Interesting concept and quite well presented actually. I don't quite understand the scoring, though - would probably make the game more fun if the relation was clearer. :)

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.
