A timer would have been quite nice, to let people see when the round starts. The trouble was with the colliders, I found. The pieces would go flying all over the place, in a way which didn't seem intended. The pieces didn't seem weighted enough, if they were meant to be protection against meteors. For the most part a fair strategy was to try to get the crates and such as far away from the citizen as possible, so they wouldn't send the citizen flying without the meteor's help. Overall, I played this entry for a longer length than I did others, and thus it was fun, but there were a fair number of bugs and design flaws that limited the enjoyability of the game. If it were just a bit more polished I would love this game, as it is I merely enjoyed it. Good entry.

Loving the sound effects. The game was too easy, in some levels the meteors couldn't even have hit the player and I didn't have to do anything.

Hah, strange little game, not really bad, but I cound't find any strategy behind building those barricades. Just put the stuff somewhere near the man, might work, might fail... Still, I had fun playing this! :)

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.
