Nice idea, variation of worlds also cool. I only used the bullets on the last stage and they actually were the best part imo. Fast, felt powerful, could do more with those =D

Popping up a dialog box whenever you die gets a bit annoying. That 3rd level was really hard.

Good surrealistic platformer. The dialog box on death is a bit annoying (though the text in it is entertaining).

The bullets were so big! Nice little platform game, I appreciate the hand drawn graphics. I featured it in my compilation of Ludum Dare 27 games, if you want to check it out!

Cool graphics. The gameply seems to be quite standard with the 10 second counter added. Keep on creating games!

Those jumps on the last stage were really awkward going back and forth hitting your head on the ceiling

Quite liked the game :) Very surrealistic idea :D The bullets looked quite big though :) But very good job nonetheless! Keep it up!

Not really innovative, but nice fun.

For some reason I won when I shot the left most enemy in the level with the tower?

Nice little game, a bit annoying with the popup window on death. Good effort!

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.
