Great effort, really polished and would be a good starting point for a phone/tablet app game,

Wow I loved the popupbook style graphics when youre going into the stage guys! Good job! I think the clouds restarting you to a full 10 seconds is a bit easy but awesome polish!

hahahah that was fantastic. Played it for far longer than I'd admit to anyone else.

The game is a bit simple, but it's clean, fluid and polished. Great start, you should add more features!

Very nice work on the graphics, specially the character model!
The way the scenery pops ahead is nice too, makes it livelier.

pretty happy theming! hahaha

it ran real smoothly and good controls, I`d just add some obstacles to make it a little harder! good entry

Nice and polished game. A bit too easy though. :) Maybe some obstacles to stop the player would be good?

With only 1 artist to make all this (during her free time) we decided to just polish things and keep it simple.
So adding models for obstacles is technically supported, we just didnt have any models ;)

I like how to next 'block' of the world appears on the horizon

Nice graphics and animation, but it seems quite easy

whoops! I still feel myself like little flying unicorn ))))
graphics are great!
you need more features for game. playing only with pink clouds are bore

Kind of a particular theme, fortunately I get the reference. The model for RD was nice and the effect of having things pop up was nice. The music was really grating, lacked depth, and didn't really sound much like the theme. The game controlled pretty smoothly. Not bad.

hypnotic game

At first, I think I need to fly through the white cloud, but after a couple of times I know that I should fly though pink ones:)

I love your dynamic level popping up the most. Nice work!

Sep 16, 2013 @ 7:22pm

This is exactly like my game only in 3d!
It's also got the same problem as my game.. It doesn't really get harder.. I quit after flying through over 160 of those clouds... XD

It strangely absorbing but would be way better it it was harder :P
Lovely graphics.

Hehe, yes people seem to get addicted, that was the plan ;) we would have made it harder if there was more time

Looks really good! Love how the level pops up!

Nice done, however after a little time you realize its not too hard and there is no reward continuing further.

Really great art style! I wish there was more challenge, like putting obstacles in the way and having some power ups or items that would slow you down etc. The terrain generating at the horizon is a cool touch. Great job!

Quite a fun game. The animations were very smooth.
The only problem I really found was the fact that it was so hard to die.

I'm by no means a brony, however, this game is not only very graphically impressive, but plays very well. Congrats on getting this done in the Jam :D

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.
