August 23rd-26th 2013 :: Theme: 10 Seconds
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

Will you beat 10 seconds?by Urfoex - Jam Entry
Can you shake it?
This one will make you sweat.
It's plain simple:
You rotate and shake your android device till all balls are gone.
1) Put the Android APK on your device.
Then install it by opening it the apk.
With update 4 all needed libraries should be included.
---After installing run the controller. It wants to download some files via Ministro - it might take a bit. Ministro is providing some shared Qt libraries.---
(Thanks caranha for mentioning)
2) Load the the game on your computer.
3) Start the Android controller in listening mode.
4) Start the game.
5) Get ready to shake!
6) Push any key on your keyboard.
7) Shake it!
8) Rotate it!
9) Shake it!
You lose when the lower lane is full with balls.
You win when there are no balls left.
Hint: Turn off your screen / cover it to not accidentally touch something and disconnect.
PS: Colors matter!
Green kills Green. Red kills Red. Blue kills Blue.
And Yellow can be killed by all three.
PPS: How long did you last and how much points did you get?
Let it in the comments ;-)
PPPS: Could anyone please help porting to Windows & Mac (&iPhone?)?
-> It starts in fullscreen now.
-> Connecting to your device is done in the start-screen now.
-> Made a Windows port via mingw cross-compile. Does it work on Windows?
-> Resizing Android GUI. It should fit now on all screens. But you now really need to cover it up to not accidentally touch any button.
-> Thanks a lot caranha (http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-27/?action=preview&uid=7847) for making a video! I've put it in the top.
-> There is now an image that shows the axis that are used to move your balls. The Binding is XYZ to RGB. X - Red , Y - Green, Z - Blue. Hope that helps a bit.
-> You can now restart via R or SPACE.
-> The android controller is now separate! But includes (hopefully) all needed libraries.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
