Started off easy and lulled me into a false sense of security, and quickly caught me off guard. Enjoyed it. Clean and Simple.

When you get to it it's actually really fun, but then it starts to feel repetitive.

Really calm game until it turns the tables on you. Taps into my inner sense of satisfaction for popping bubblewrap.

Kinda hard to tell how your doing with no on screen indication of health. Not bad otherwise.

This game really catches you off guard. I love the idea but it does start to feel a little repetitive if you get decent at it. Side goals would really enhance this game- give the player something more to focus on. Perhaps different types of bubbles that require different action or upgrades... in fact, a simple XP and levelling would keep this interesting.

Killed by exploding bubbles :D
It's a fun game. Simple, but fun.

Great minimalistic intent but actual screen flickers too much on either Firefox or Chrome, thus making game not really playable. What a shame!

starts of a little slow for my liking, but it kept me clicking on bubbles!

Good job making something simple so terrifying. I spent my entire first play through going, "Oh my god! Oh my god! What happens if I fail! I don't want to see it! NoNoNo..."

Surprisingly fun and full of suspense! A great example of how less can be more :)

I wasn't a very good bubble manager, though. Perhaps I'll do better in bubble-middle-management ;)

Very simple but cool game. Some kind of score text or level text would be nice :)

Simple, but well executed. I like how things ramp up slowly and once you go 'full circle' it'll become harder more quickly.

Ah ah! Too easy...
Too easy!
Oh... Shit.

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.
