As cool as this mechanic is, there isn't much challenge. I found out you can survive for a really long time by just holding down one of the directional keys, making it fire in all directions.

I like the setup of the game, but the way it works I was not really impressed. I did't really see a challenge in it, but it could be fun if it was tweaked some more.

Interesting game. Do you plan to continue it ?

I like the aesthetic but I kind of see it as just another thing to find what I'm good at. The idea was never quite there for it which was a big problem.

If you used love, couldn't you have made a .love file? Those can be used on all platforms. I can't play this because it's not available for Mac.

The background music was repetitive. The idea is interesting.

Interesting idea, although the connection to the theme is a bit loose. Although too easy, it was still somewhat entertaining to play, more than can be said for some games.

Nice game, I liked it loads. I just found it sort of relaxing and fun to play. I featured this game in my LD27 compilation video series, if you'd like to check it out :)

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.
