I love how your head can save you so many times ;) See my screencap:
Fun game! But I didn't get very far though.

I'm not very good at this type of game (too easily frustrated), but nice execution!

I love the graphics but the game is simply too hard and frustrating. I also can't see how it's related to theme.

Pretty cool game! Except WAY too hard. Like, I couldn't get past the toaster.

Really challenging :)
Controlls are really responsive, which makes it very controllable. A variable jumpheight may have been usefull.
Reminds me somehow a little bit of super meat boy.
Thumbs up for the toaster :D

@StMatn the jump height is variable, although it's a bit too sensetive sadly, you have to hit the spacebar really quickly to jump shorter (would recommend using your right hand for it as opposed to using your thumb)

Very hard game. Couldn't get past first screen. Would be nice if it startet easier so you could see more of the game.

The idea of setting a checkpoint is interesting. It has an interesting "push your luck" aspect.
It's kinda bad that you need to restart the game to set the checkpoint in another place.
Maybe we could pick it up, and dropped it in another place. If you die with the checkpoint, you go back to the beginning.

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.
