1 Minute Capsule

by jfroco - 48 Hour Compo Entry

In 1 Minute capsule use the left and right arrow keys to rotate the playfield and the gravity to guide your capsule to the checkered flag. Green blocks start to appear when you are close to the flag.

You have just one minute to complete each state.

Avoid black holes and destroy small blocks hitting them at high speed.

All content was made by me using:

Game Maker Studio
Mixcraft 5

HTML5 version requires WebGL and it has graphics glitches.
I recommend the Windows version.

Made my head spin, in a good way. The markings on the tiles seem very intriguing

A simple but fun mechanic. I do a fondness for physics based games. If I had one suggestion, it would be to add more levels because I finished it quite quickly. But you've got the structure for a great game - well done!

Played the web version. Very cool concept, but it's making me dizzy. I'm not cut out to be an astronaut. Difficulty of the first level was good, but I had to give up on the second. Will probably try this game again once I've got some food in my stomach. Nice effort!

Fun game, but would like to be able to see more of the screen or be able to rotate quicker.

That was really good fun. Would have liked more levels, but i enjoyed the music and the graphics worked, as simple as they were.

As I don’t have Windows I played the WebGL version and I didn’t notice any severe graphical problems. Nice game overall.

I really sucked at this game, but it was VERY nice and well done. I included this game in my Ludum Dare Compilation series, if you'd like to check it out :)

The turning speed was a bit frustrating, but otherwise, it was quite fun. Nice job!

Solid. Nice sprites, music, controls, and gameplay. I got frustrated when I died on level three and had to start over on level one again.

Fun game. It reminded me of this one game I used to play as a child that I really liked. Good job!

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.
