Controls are just arrow keys.
Also R to reset and ] to skip (not many levels though, may make a post compo version).

Ah, didn't have as much time to work it, so as of really just a test of mechanics and some quick levels.

Switched over to Haxeflixel, and used FlashDevelop, Gimp and OpenMPT (for that one sound...)

The game is a weird metaphor on staying awake/falling asleep.

I like it, it quite a funny idea, but I couldn't complete the level with the fifth black spheres T_T

Interesting idea, I really liked the graphics, they looked very iconic.

Amusing idea. I liked the graphic and concept.

Would prefer less of a 'countdown' and slightly faster gameplay.

Neat game, that last level was tough!

Good graphics, there's a nice mood to the game with the slowly darkening screen. Wish there was a little more to do within each level, the enemies don't seem to do very much. Still good effort!

Oh, this is a super pretty game *-* I really like the idea, if only there was more of it! Sad that you didn't have too much time for the jam :(

Cute Phoenix, with a very cool visual style; pixel art with an emphasis on diagonal lines. The dark bands did a lot to create a sense of anxiety and danger as well. I'm sorry it was so short, but I enjoyed what was there. Thanks for putting this together!

Nice art!

I like how sharp are the graphics.
Well done on the fire effect on the bird, it's doing great.
Regarding the game, I was a bit confused about the dark spheres, even if I get touched I always could lit the bushes.

Neat graphical style! I'm not sure if I've seen some of those effects before.

If you're thinking of extending it post-compo, I'd suggest adding more complexity to the game, in addition to levels. (Not sure what...more mechanics or ways to interact, maybe?)

I was not able to complete it, it got too hard for me, but I did like what I played. It wasn't exactly "fun" in the classic sense, but it was engaging. I don't know why I was burning those bushes, or what effect being in the dark had, but with some dialog/scenes in between and a few more levels I could see this as a good artsy game.

I really like it! :) Nice graphics, nice idea! I would have liked if there were more levels though :)

Very impressed with the darkness effect here. Movement could've been just a little faster though. I also only noticed at the end that only the little whisps had to catch the trees to get them to burn, and not me having to touch them myself. Which helped me get past the last level. Nice done!

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.

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.
