I really like it! Having the character being controlled by the mouse is a really cool idea.

Great use of the mouse. It offers just enough control that the player doesn't feel cheated when he dies a lot. Also, props for making the death animation/reset time so short; makes the game much more fun and easier to keep playing.

Nice innovation with the control. The difficulty increase between level 3 and 4 is too damn high! :P

Very nice control! Most mouse controlled characters like this don't control nearly as well. Just that achievement alone is excellent, plus the game is really fun! Well done!!

Btw the slope/wind mechanic was really freaking hard D:

Wow, couldn't get past level 4. I like the concept of mouse control though. The minimalistic graphics are nice too.

I'd say the death sound is too loud in comparison to the music. It was pretty jarring whenever it played.

The dead zone for the mouse controls is pretty big, but overall its a pretty neat game. Controls are better than just having it directly follow your cursor.

Nice game, would've been really nice to have an option ingame to adjust the mouse sensitivity though :(

Very interesting mouse control, I can cheat a little bit, I have two DPI modes on mouse. Lot of time went into lvl7, gave up on lvl8, cool :D

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.
