Considering I wasn't planning on entering at all, I'm fairly happy with how this turned out.

This is a game that presents you with a new layout and objective every 10 seconds. Complete the objectives to increase your score. Fail the objective, and you lose a life. It will likely take several attempts to get the hang of, but it think it can be, dare I say it, fun. Also, it gets really hard REALLY fast.

Nice. Although, I wish there were a bit more time to read the instructions before the round starts. I was reading and got caught... It was a little bit difficult to read with the background like that.

It worked well with the theme, I found myself saying the title a lot. Really great job making procedural minigames!

Thanks guys. And VoxPlacitum, thanks for letting me know. It's hard to know exactly how fast it should play when you've only tested it yourself.

Nice game idea. I found it rather confusing that my character was a different shape and colour every level, but I suppose that was the point?

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.
