Fun game! The little surprise at the start was lovely. With a only race for a high score, it leaves me wanting more though.

Nice clean UI, too! :D

5 5/5s from me. That's the highest so far of my ratings. You had a simple idea and executed it superbly. Graphics were minimal, but in many ways that helped the game out. I do wish there was some way to play it online with another player, but that's far too much to ask for a 48 hour game :P.

Not sold on the connection to the theme, but a neat concept and fantastically clean, elegant execution.

Nice colours and audio, getting trippy when speeds up a little :) Hard to stop.

simple but great game! mechanics were easy to understand but hard to execute.
also like the simplistic style and the clean interface!

also the subtle UIs (I'm specifically pointing out the full screen button! really liked how you put it in the game)

5/5 for me! :D

Woah, great music and nice concept! I love the cooperation part and the way you increase the difficulty in parallel with the music! Great Job!

Incredible, quick and fun. Great work!

fun game but where's the theme?
also I think 3rd party music is against compo rules

otherwise a nice clean interface and smooth execution

Fantastic game! I loved it!!

My two only concerns are: not really theme related and I think the music could be more slow paced/relaxing for this kind of game.
Apart from that, awesome work! Nice presentation, great idea and neat execution. Really good job!

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.
