Something need to be made harder over time or there need to be an end.

The graphics actually look good, but the game is rather minimalist. How about increasing difficulty level, and having different enemy behaviours? I think the collision bounding boxes are too large. I didn't get any sound, that's probably because I'm on Linux.

Not bad! I think if the difficulty changed, or if something changed over time, this would be 10x better.

At first seemed to be difficult, but then I enjoyed it. Very well prepared. My record is 18.

This Game is quite nice, but it needs some variation. Maybe more Obstacles.

Fun little game. I get way to greedy though and put myself in terrible situations haha.

Pretty fun! I found that it was much easier to play when being overly cautious :) Hiscore:28

The controls feel a bit floaty/delayed on chrome, but otherwise good job! Not really seeing much of the theme in there though...

It's fun! I think you got right the difficulty though I was expecting it to change over time (as you mentioned in your post-mortem).
Controls are working ok for me on chrome.

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.
