Strange but addictive I wanted to see what would happen the more I tryed it was difficult but playable.

It looks pretty cool, but I need to have love2d to run it? (whatever that is) Some instructions for how to run it would be appreciated.

Got an error. Missing "MSVCR110.dll" from my computer. Had to download a redist to get it. Might want to include that, or something of that sort.

Not sure what was going on, but it seemed to speed up on occasion.

Interesting idea, though in some ways it was a little frustrating constantly getting set back; I think I would've preferred it if, instead of X seconds passing and me getting set back, I only get set back on death. But you may have tried that and liked the current way better, regardless it was well made!

Fun game, but took me a while to figure out what was going on. I loved the idea thou

There is way too much going on, not obvious what to do

I took a while until I figured out what to do and I got somewhere. It was pretty hard to play through with constantly getting set back. Overal great idea and pretty fun, but it needs some more balance.

The game looks like as if it's running too fast on my pc.
Also - I wasn't really sure what to do other then to run to the right.
The name is definetely gold though!

Nice graphics, takes a bit of time to work out what the hell is going on. Kinda fun though

Found it pretty good fun; with a bit of polish, this could be something special.

I could not run it on my computer :/

Interesting concept. I get some massive slow down the later the game goes. I'm guessing you don't clean up the bullets efficiently enough.

- Updated game to include sound and be more balanced -

Cool mechanic and I'm impressed you got it to work. I was a bit confused at the start, I thought the sudden jumps were caused by a bug, so I think next time you should focus more on explanation or more audiovisual cues for the time jumps.

Ran really aweful on my system, not sure if it's platform specific. Running on Windows 7 here.

Very very hard. Love the idea and looked cool, but could barely get past the first screen! :)

Interesting and unusual concept! Very difficult though. I constantly felt like I didn't have anywhere near enough time before time travelling(?)

Dont really get it

The warpback mechanic was never really used for anything and only felt odd and misplaced. Remembering where you were 5 seconds ago so that you can avoid shots is not really easy especially for a mechanic that doesn't add anything. The 3 levels seemed nice but constantly being chased by an army of enemies made it hard to really experience them. The shooting sound quickly got quite annoying.

I like the graphic but the main mechanic is somewhat misplaced.

Nice concept, pretty confusing at first but part of the fun was figuring out what was going on! I think a little more variety in the sound effects would have helped as it started to sound a little repetitive. Original.

Never could get past level two, but it was an interesting game. It was weird trying to figure out how it worked, but even after I understood it I still didn't do very well haha. Loved the design of Juan.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
