Oh this is just diabolical/impossible :P

Haha... I played for a little while (getting as close as 9.9) and now I'm pretty certain there are no other levels. Original idea and fun for a bit!

Okay, I did 2 small bugfixes: (1) after level 10 (that is the last level), it now cycles back to the beginning without freezing; (2) there were different responses for better times which weren't showing up properly - now they're showing up.

As to it being diabolical/impossible, however, nothing I can do about that now, sorry! :) But you can go on to further levels at any time - just press space to interrupt a run, and enter to go on. Thanks for playing and feedbacking.

The game is fun but on level 4 for some reason it wouldn't count me as landing on Point B so I couldn't continue past that. Its fun for what it is. Good job!

Beat the game! Found a bug that had me confused for a little while. If you press space mid level, you restart. From there, pressing any arrow key or enter will make you inch towards the second point without starting the timer. Doesn't really affect gameplay, as you have to start the clock (which brings you back to the start) but it had me confused at first. Great work overall!

The graphics were simple, yet pleasant to the eyes. Some levels are impossible to get 10.0, or am i doing it wrong?

Runs horribly slow on my machine. It seems to be very heavy for such a simple game. Tried on Chrome, Firefox and Opera so it's not about the browser. The slowness makes even the first map impossible to pass under 10 secs. :P

Nice game, I liked the level ideas (the fast patches reminded me of Portal 2). Doing something to prevent camping near the target would be neat. Needs better controls for going between levels, I kept accidentally skipping levels by pressing enter and then I couldn't get back.

Man I could never get 10.0 X_X It was cool the different ways you were changing up the dynamics (swamp,grass,wind,etc.) and I liked the fact that even though I didn't get a perfect 10 I could still try the next levels. Good stuff.

Very hard! After trying level 4 multiple times it won't recognize my player moving directly onto to target

Cool idea. It'd probably be nicer if there was a larger hit area for the end zone, although that would remove some of the challenge. :P

I liked that I didn't have to get perfect on a level to continue. I would've rage-quit otherwise ; )

The lack of music/sound effects was a little sad. Maybe try using sfxr for some simple sound effects next time?

Simple, but I guess you have some interesting stuff here too.

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.
