Space Time

by DalsGames - Jam Entry

We made a game that is very easy and simple.

You have ten seconds to get all the dudes out of the screen.
Try to beat as many levels as possible.

Coool Gravity like motion
Randomly generated backgrounds
And yeah simple gameplay!

You use the mouse to drag the dudes out of the screen.
The game should be played on android tablet for the best experience.

simple but well formed :) i could see this being a lot of fun on a touch device. what are the little dudes? they look like sentient phones?

Thanks! Yeah it is totally better on a touch device.
Well I do not really know what they are, they have been refereed to as the tooth dude during development ;)

Simple, but fun to play and somehow funny. Actually you should encourage people to play the game with a mouse as an additional challenge! :D

hard to play with a mouse, it seemed not to grab the guys randomly.

The same sounds get irritating quickly, could be better with some variations. As for the gameplay, there isn't much of it. Seems that mouse is a bad choice to play it.

I played on Android (phone, not tablet) and it was a little hard to drag the guys. It didn't seem to detect most of my drag motions, and when it did the guys moved very slowly.

But this is a great start and I could definitely see this being expanded into a full game. Nice work.

The theme seems sort of like an afterthought here, but the core mechanics of grab-and-fling are fun. I don't really understand why the dudes sometimes bounce off the edges of the screen instead of flying out, though.

ha! very clever concept, makes me wonder why I killed myself on pixel art. would like to try it on a touch screen alright. good jam.

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.
