Not bad, I liked the hand drawn aesthetic, especially the taped together backgrounds, that was very cool! The controls were a bit floaty though, and on the spaceship level it was kind of tough to see the enemy bullets on that background. Also not the most original use of the "10 seconds" theme ;)

Man that boss is hard!! Tried like 20 times, couldn't get him enough within the time limit! Hahaha

Oh hey also, try to avoid installers next time! Everyone hates installers :)

I was able (after much irritation) to beat it all. :)
You have to shoot the boss in the eye. It was a pain, to say the least!

Thank you team HDH!

Liked the art style and I think the concept would be cool if you were to add more levels with different goals, sort of like a warioware platformer. Took me a bit to figure out the boss.

Loved the hand drawn graphics. It will probably need a little more tweaking on the controls and collisions, but overall a good game

I really tried my best with the last boss but eventually rage quit took over, but in a good way! :) Was fun and challenging!

Sadly, wasn't able to run this (possibly because I'm running Windows XP?). Looks great though - well done Ritzblues783!

Died 72 times before I killed the boss, unfortunately he killed me too, fortunately I still won :P I agree with the bullets on the back ground. Nicely done.

VERY creative and really hard. gg :)

I had 26 deaths. Did I die much? Hehe =D

The gameplay was simple, but a bit slippery in the first level. I liked the style of the visuals! Very great art!

For a "quick-made" game, I liked it! =)

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.
