I can not pass that evil submarine, since i get there low on health.
Pretty cool! :D

You get cheap shots when the submarine is moving in and out of the screen. If you still have trouble, cheat by pressing H and heal yourself ;)

Nice! It was a challenge, and the graphics and sound were all consistent and smooth! Wish I would've read the comments and saw the H cheat haha

One of the most fun games I've played today.

Nice and simple, not easy though. I had difficulties estimating how my health was doing (since it just fades). A percentage text or equivalent would help here. Also, nice graphic style :) Well done!

Nice, didn't know the yellow submarine had torpedos! I didn't expect the mini-boss fights, so that was welcomed.

It's a fun game. Though the mechanic is simple, recognizing the movement patterns and dodge, but you have made it so interesting to do this over and over again :)

Really lovely looking game, excellent choice of colours. i enjoyed the gameplay too (i killed the shark but didn;t last long against the swordfish). the life remaining was hard to determine, as suggested above a % of reducing size would be more clear.

I found the control a bit weird (the left-right, not the top-bottom).
The shark is very hard to beat (fast),
but once passed, it is quite fun, I like the different layers (levels) in the game you put in, and also the graphics.
The evil submarine is quite challenging.

The amount of different enemy-mechanis, especially the bossfiggts, is impressive. I had a lot of fun playing this. Good Job!

That was very fun, the slippery controls added challenge to it, nice job!

This was fun and I really like the graphics. The controls felt a little too floaty to me, but all round a decent effort.

Nice that there are different boss fights with different tactics, but they are quite challenging! The rest fells more like a filler, but without it it also would feel strange.
Well done.

Wow I was really impressed by this. First impressions this didn't look very good, but the progression and bosses were really nice! I died on the third one :( I think some music and a bit better first impression and screenshots would help this game alot.

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.
