Out of Time

by Mjiig - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is a simple minigame based take on the theme, you start with 10 seconds on the clock and have to finish whatever games appear in order to get more time (2 seconds). Score is the number of games won.

Tested on chromium and firefox.

This was my first time using javascript and the whole thing was done in just over 24 hours (including sleeping time), so I'm pretty happy with the result. There's actually a fairly flexable system for making new levels in there if anyone wants to take a look at it, which includes at least one set of features that I never used.

No sound as usual, so if anyone wants to recommend some (0 skill required) programs for making simple background music I'd be very interested for future comps.

Short n Brilliant. The catching circle minigame changing its rules caught me off guard.

Nice collection of mini-games. Had to rate you low in graphics but I ignored graphics and audio when deciding the overall score. Well done.

Fun little game. I like the fact your put into each puzzle with no knowledge of the rules at first. Good game. Some ambient music would have been nice.

A fun collection of minigames. I would have liked to see a bit of audio, even just a beep here and there. Good job!

The difficulty ramps up nicely, but it would have been nice if there would be audio.

My first reaction to catching the circles was to avoid the circles :P

I like the mini games, more variety would be great though. Maybe some color variations would be nice too. And the game would definitely benefit from audio. But overall a nice job!

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.
