It's functional and fun! I always get swamped at around wave 3-4, though. But that's not a fault of the game, it's just me sucking at it. :P

Good, another great game THAT I SUCK AT. Well done on your entry, especially with the 2 hour timeframe. :)

Loved it, congrats! What I found amazing is that it is functional and infinite with 2 hours of work - even being a simple game, it has a solid structure that doesn't rely on content creation. These days I'm very interested in such designs, like: instead of doing a game where each hour spent in production represents a few more minutes of content for the player to see, you instead make a game that can theoretically be played indefinitely up from the very first hours of work, and instead of adding content in a linear manner, you add features and functionalities that enrich the overall experience. Loved it, really! As simple as it may be, it gave me some good insights. Congratulations! And man, 2 hours - this is MADNESS! I took longer than that on the title screen! hahaha You are a true warrior. So many poeple whining they want to make games but can't spare a weekend, and here it is - a fun little game made in two hours. Seriously man, I'm honestly congratulating you here for several things!

The kind of minimalism I like. In two hours really? Impressive!

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.
