Great music, pretty good graphics. Actual mechanics were fun, though a way to reset the level would be cool.

Nice puzzle game. I like the theme usage/strategy to pick the right equipment item. The graphics are very well done. When I fell down the hole on level 3, I seemed to be stuck there and had to restart. Great effort!

Pretty cool game. You should mention somewhere that pressing R lets you restart the level. Sometimes gravity would go funky and I would jump really high.

Interesting physics simulation. I like being able to complete levels in different ways! Nice job!

I used jetpack for most levels. Some of the gizmos like the cube, the bomb and the teleporter I never found any use for. Got stuck on the LD48 level, not sure how to complete it. Nice little game though.

A general comment. You really really need to rate games, the way the system work you get rated if you rate. And I bet you'd like a fair view of what how good your game was. As it is now, you only have 6 votes including this one.

You must sign in to comment.

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.
