Didn't match the theme at all, the camera was awkward, but if the theme was "sports" this would have been good :P

so... where is our "10 seconds"?
and the color is a mess

Camera was a little too crazy. I like the idea, and the skateboard was neat!

The graphics and camera are crazy, but I kinda like them. :) Great music too. There's not much challenge to the gameplay (I scored 28 first time while I was learning the controls, but if I played again I'm pretty sure I'd get the maximum score) but there's an interesting idea in here, this kind of solo sport/human pinball thing. I felt the use of the theme was fairly weak, but overall it's one of the more interesting entries that I've played so far.

Oh, forgot to mention - you need to include a link to your game's source, it's a requirement for competition entries.

Gameplay doesn't quite click and there are camera problems, but the movement physics are pretty fun and "solo sports" is a promising concept.

Does that count for the theme? Also I don't like the color scheme. The character control was good though.

I liked this - it's the kernel of a pretty fun game if you were to expand the idea some more. Colors are kind of trippy but with the future sport title it immediately made me think of those old school 'future' arcade games like Tron.

Pretty cool, took a while to get the hand of but I had fun with it. Also lol at everyone thinking that because the theme is 10 seconds, something every 10 seconds MUST happen. Give over seriously, the theme is open for interpretation. Anyway nice game.

Hmm... yes I think this is a sport I would actually want to play in real life! It should be the official sport of one of William Gibson's novels. Fun!

Utterly insane, and totally endearing because of it! The music is stuck in my head now.

Really really interesting game. It's not immediately clear, but once you get the rules it a pretty unique take on sports. The crazy primary colors worked for me since it fits into the madness of the main game, but I can imagine it's pretty polarizing. Good job on sticking with your instincts and making a game unlike anything else in LD!

Can't wait for the YEAR 3000!

Insane game, but very fun! I liked it! I featured it in my video compilation of Ludum Dare 27 games, if you would like to check it out,

Haha, very interesting game!
The rules really confused me, but this still made more sense than Quiddich.
Controls and mechanics are pretty good!

Very smart making the player score 4 points before playing the game, it allows the player to learn and prove they can play. Also, future sport, hah great job.

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.
