This is a well polished entry. The sound and music blend together well and the camera behaviour is really well done. The game is much nicer than the intro graphics.

Pretty cool, it's got a story n everything, and was fun to play. I played a few times.

Cool starting comic panel scroller. Neat idea and a simple execution.

Nice story, fun to play. The "only one try" thing feels like kind of a cop out for the theme though :P

Good idea for a game. The action-cam is great!

Fun to play! The sounds of the coin hitting are nice, and the movement was very fun to control. I wasn't really sure how you got game over, but I played it a few times :)

Wow, amazing, and really very fun. The difficulty might be a little high at the start (a few less blocks so people can get a feel) and the parallax with the zooming in and out got me a little dizzy but after that, so good. Bravo.

Really fun and addictive. Great idea, you should develop this on mobile devices and charge a buck :)

Despite the fact that it is a really simple concept, it works really well! The only thing i would add is some ranadom powerups/obstacles other than just blocks. And i didnt like the camera motion too much.

Very good execution. Unfortunately it gets repetitive fast :)

Really fun! My high score was 6900. The controls were a bit frustrating, and the music wasn't really right - also I wish it didn't send you all the way back to the intro every time you lose. But still, great entry!

I loved the comic and the graphics were great and the coin cam was funny. All and all a really great entry.

The intro comic was a good addition and the game its self was good.

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.
