The Amazing Adventures Of 10 Second Tim

by gameXcore - 48 Hour Compo Entry

XNA & Silverlight versions of the game are slightly different, the XNA version has fancier graphics and supports gamepads!

The silverlight framerate can also get a bit choppy!

Basically, for best results, choose XNA.

OMG #random #warioware #wtf :D
nice concept! though the intro was a bit long. I'm pretty sure your game would have worked with a shorter intro as well

Very nice! I like the gameplay a lot. Though there should be an option to skip the intro...

go through intro every time is too long... and because I'm bad at the minigames I lose almost immediately. Frustrating, because it's seems to be very fun !

Skipping the intro was one of those "On my todo" list things when I ran out of time, I think it probably should have been elevated in priority.

Good game, kinda hard at start when you don't know the random games. Otherwise, solid entry!

You are obviously mental for doing so many mini games in such a short time. Great effort though. Love the procedural anims :)

This game seems pretty fun, but I was having the same problem as plancien.

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.
