Good Job guys! Finally stopped after getting top on the leaderboards(Mitchell). One thing though, is that it often just becomes a black screen and you have no idea what is going on.

I'll have to try it again when I've got a mouse, sprites look really nice. Global Leaderboard is a pretty cool feature too.

I loved the intro! The game is kind of hard, though! I wish there was a better indication that you are losing health every time an enemy hits you. Also, my mouse hates you guys! =D

If you're delivering pizza, why T.A.C.O.S.? The mystery compels me.

Anyway, some great art, catchy music, and pretty solid platformer mechanics (I like the ice floors!) spamming arrows is more effective than the shotgun. Also, I can't help but think this was built with another theme in mind (Parallel Worlds? :3), as the 10 seconds thing seems like an afterthought. But still, it's quite nice! Excellent work.

Hey Solifuge, thanks for your comment !
We really think of it with the theme in mind, looking for an original idea of the use of the "10 seconds" ^^.

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.
