Great music really gets you in a mood for being focused. Like the idea - some graphics and it could be an android game.

Well done, the mechanic is nice and the gameplay fits the theme. I'll probably bookmark to play when I have some time to get rid of :)

This is a cool idea - I could see myself dumping some free time into it if it were a full-featured puzzle game!

Great music.

Took me a second to figure out the mechanics, but I really like it.

Thanks for the comments!

@rezoner I'd love to publish it on Android, I'll be polishing it (gfx, music, sound) and try to release it

Interesting puzzle game, solid and well thought out mechanic. Could be turned into a full game with some more work.

Impressive! I'm puzzled :) Fits very well with the 10 seconds theme.

Interesting idea, but it felt unfair when you had no options other than taking a negative move. I think if you added a bit more to this game, it would be an addictive little puzzler.

As others have said, a nice choice in music. I enjoyed it. Highest score was a 110.

Great idea. I found it a bit hard to keep track of the "current" color. If it was bigger it would be easier to see in your peripheral vision.

Thanks to all comments!

@Kragnir I really want to explore more possibilities with this game.

@zatyka thanks! yeah, when you cannot move because there are no other option is the worst part of the game (it makes the dynamic of the game very slow).

@sanojian yeah, it's hard to keep track of the current color, an idea in my head is to show a possible feedback in the same ball, to see when it's going to change.

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.
