I could only make 5. :( Fun little game, though. The physics were really effective.

Pretty cool! Unfortunately, the best strategy is to just fire off as many basket balls as you can in the hopes that one bounces it. There was a fairly common glitch that would lock the balls into flying straight up and would end the game.

Nice. This would make a fun phone game.

Very addictive, fun game!

It would have been nicer if the basketballs were either less bouncy or disappeared after a while, as a lot of my shots were getting blocked by balls I'd thrown much earlier.

An on-screen counter for the number of baskets made would also be nice.

The mechanics are very simple and very fun! Moving the player back just a little after each shot was made was brilliant!

I played this one quite a bit; I managed to get 19 baskets :)
Good job!

Honestly, I expected for something irrelevant bad game, but I'm incredibly disappointed - in a good meaning! SUPERFUN GAME!

Graphics is so solid but still works. Reminds me of cel-shading somehow.

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.
