Now this is a nice find!
the controls are simple and sweet, Its pretty cool that you managed to cram out so many levels with just one mechanic, without making it boring

Loved this little game! Very nice little idea for a puzzle game. Unfortunately, though, several of these puzzles were really easy. I was able to beat a few of them with a single switch of a light, whereas there were multiple switches I didn't use. The idea was very solid, though, and I was happy to see so many levels! Shame there was no audio, though. Well done!

That's a cool mechanic for a puzzle. Some of the levels left me a little disappointed at the potential puzzles that could be made with this idea. Good game.

Hey, this surprised me a great deal, controls are super simple and puzzles are to, but it still feels really solid! Awesome game there! :D (On the last level I managed to clip through the wall on the left, lol)

Nice puzzle. I love it! You might want to try to add some harder puzzle, because most of the level were done by me in a couple of seconds. Great Game though. :)

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.
