Background music is nice, but this "beep" while picking something is painful.

I actually like the graphics style!

I found a few glitches; it took me a while to learn that RED was good and GREEN was bad (in Europe green is good and red is bad, e.g. traffic lights). Also, you get an interesting glitch if you jump higher than the top, and its not obvious that the bottom is lethal, and you seem to be able to stick to the end of ledges, and you can somehow get half-height on a ledge so you are in it rather than on it.

Cool game. Very relaxing. Works very smooth. Good job with the music and highscsore table! (I'm number 1, ho ho ho ;D ).

While the Audio and SFX helped set the mood, but the gameplay and graphics end up being a tad bland. There's potential here, but needs more gameplay elements to feel fleshed out (like obstacles/timer/forced screen scrolling).

Not bad for 48 hours though.

I found myself playing this for quite a while. But even after that I still don't quite get the concept. After I became too stuck to progress upwards (are you even forced to go up?), I used my super power thing with the Enter key and got a game over. It was fun while it lasted, but the whole thing's confusing. Next time, you should invest slightly more on making sure everything is well explained.

I'm not really sure what there is to explain?

The game is about collecting pickups and that is it. You don't have to go up or down (but you can) You can fall off the screen (and it will drop you from the top) There is no way to lose.

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.
