Very cute game, and well made! I couldn't play much because I am colorblind, but I won't hold that against you!

@Shubshub do you mean the Windows version of our game specifically isn't working? Or games on your computer in general.

Good graphics and music but the game really lacks feedback.
I found myself clicking around hoping something happened and... candy crush happened.

Nice game. I don't really find the use for fusing really, it's too much to think about XD Maybe you should think of something that is simpler and fun?

Nice, simple gameplay. The graphics and music were great. A fix for the windows cursor issue would be a nice polish item, but it was pretty minor.

It's a shame that Windows cursos don't work, because the game is nice. I specially liked the graphics and combo/fusing system. Good work!

Very good presentation with the graphics and the music.
I ended in lvl 10 with a score of 22963080 :-)
The difficulty could increase a bit faster, it took quite a while hehe

It was a bit difficult to distinguish the orange and green gems because I'm partially colorblind, but it was still fun. It was very well polished, nice job.

Good little match game! Smooth animations and pretty good sounds. I think it could benefit from a more hands-on tutorial. It took me a bit to figure out how to make color fusing actually do anything after reading the instructions, but it all came together eventually. Well done!

I must say, this one is pretty addicting!
Well done!

Charming graphics, and music was nice and relaxing :). It's nice to see games like coming back based on classic games, with with some extra twist.

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.
