Quite fun to play. And frustrating, I always crash in other trains ;(

I liked this a lot. Requires thinking ahead while under pressure, which is something I absolutely love in games. Well done.

Fun. And Innovation is really done correctly.When i am watching to design i am starting to think that this is an app for Anonymous to find the Target =D )) .

Great idea, first time found it really frustrating, however quickly got handle on controls and had a good amount of fun.

Apr 28, 2014 @ 10:42am

Plays very smooth and it's a fun game, on top of that it even has scoreboard. Good work :)

Wow, this is actually a really cool game! Simple but addictive :) I got 100+ but then I checked again and my name wasn't there anymore, damnit.

Nice! Very hard after some time and a bit frustrating when you can't turn back and have to kill yourself, but very fun!

Fun! If I wasn't trying to get through a lot of games I could definitely see myself playing this for ages. The highscore table is definitely a good addition.

This is fun & addictive! Well done! But I think there are some bugs in the scoreboard coz I actually scored 273 and it listed me as 73.

Awesome idea! Nice execution. One of the best I tried so far.

Simple but fully realized. I didn't get the sense that the difficulty was increasing, though I think it should.

Graphics are really nice.

Great idea, simple and effective!

Simple and fun. I like this kind of minimalistic graphics.

anbreizh says ...
Apr 28, 2014 @ 7:53pm

Very nice overall, a multiplayer version may be very fun. Also, I think this game would be more playable if the car was always running forward and we selected the next node with the mouse

Im not quite sure about this game to be honest. I find the mechanics quite good which is why I enjoy playing the game, but I can´t quite connect it to the theme =\
Minimalistic graphics done right! =D

sugarbyte says ...
Apr 29, 2014 @ 2:30am

This is so fun and crisp! I am a little lost on the connection to the theme.

Very nice, polished and addivtive. A fullscreen mode would be awesome.

Having made a couple games on delaunay-triangulation grids like this before, I loved this one.

Very nice, good game design (and graphic design) all around. Great to see more Haxe games this time, and I'm checking out your blog+github (especially ugl, which looks cool) now!

First innovative game I found :-)
A bit hard, didn't do all too well. Art style matches the game. Very well done!

Interesting concept. Cool to see a graph being used as a way of movement.

It's a fun little puzzle, though the controls are a bit problematic; it took me a while before I started really focusing on the purple indicator :)

248!! Hands down the most fun game I've played in LD29 so far.

Very fun game, it was pretty easy to rank top but it didn't seem to save when I go back? Had 390~ish.

Will play again :D

For people having ranking problems: could you tell me the browser/os? Did you put your name on before dying? Did you die?

Simple mecanism but very powerful game. Nicely polished gameplay and graphics. And you made a top rank!
Well done!

Very cool

May 1, 2014 @ 10:53am

Nice concept!
It's pretty fun. But sometaimes I can't see the target. Maybe it should be... and I have to wait some times...

blay09 says ...

I found it quite easy considering I could just stop wherever I wanted and other trains would always dodge me. I'm assuming the longer you take though, the lower the score? A time limit would probably spice it up a little.

Loved this game.
Very creative, responsive gameplay, addictive...
The high-score thingy is awesome too!

May 2, 2014 @ 10:14am

Well, that's original take on theme. But my score didn't get saved :( Still, I enjoyed this.

Hi. Once I realised how far ahead track change was happening then had a better time! Interesting and novel idea.

May 4, 2014 @ 9:28pm

Simple and fun!

Hello, there!

love the concept, great job!

May 7, 2014 @ 1:00am

Nice minimalistic approach, and it was fairly challenging. The leaderboard was a cool touch.

Fun and unique, I really enjoy this game a lot! :)

Took me a moment to get the hang of it. The restriction in movement adds an interesting feel to the game. I enjoyed it a lot.

Really great idea, very intuitive controls and nice clean aesthetic. I had a lot of fun playing.

I just got what should have been the new highscore but I'm not on the leaderboard... Does it take a bit to update?

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.
