The game is a little buggy, but I love your art style, and the music is pretty good.

Cute little platformer with a rather nice intro. Good art and a better-developed story than I expected. I really love your interpretation of the theme - haven't seen anyone increment up to 10 seconds yet! Great job!

I liked the use of the theme and the controls are a little slippery, but other than that its a solid game. Well Done.

The first few levels were okay, but by the third or fourth with seven enemies rushing into an a four block section it became incredibly difficult to get an attack before you die. It took me a good 30 tried or so to get that level cleared.

Finished, polished and playable. I particularly like the intro and ending. I think this is the first game I've played where the ten seconds aren't used as countdoxn, so that's a change. Collisions felt a bit unusual at times, but that's probably just me.

Actually, when I think about it, the game setting and story are a bit weird. That's cool !

Nice story, I enjoyed that a lot and it definitely added to the mood. The player movement could be improved though.

Sometimes enemies get stuck making the level impossible.

Graphics were very pleasant and charming. The story was a bit confusing but a fun game despite that!

The controls and the response... kinda wild! :P
Have to get the hang off it.

Otherwise pretty nice short game

This was really hard. Perhaps the controls are a bit off? The music and graphics were nice, though :)

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.
