First time in the compo. I ended up cutting probably too much content out and this made the gameplay too shallow.

Use arrows to jump/double jump and burn fuel to accelerate and slow down.
Use left mouse key to drop bombs where needed.

This game has a lot of potential. In the state it is right now: the controls are quite quirky and there is too little content to really make it fun. But I find the general idea very original and I wouldn't mind keeping the minimal visual style.

i like minimal graphics like this. sound fit well. whenever i clicked the mouse, i lost all control for the rest of the session and had to reload. this is playing via web. I was having a bit of fun, though, just dodging stuff. the double jump might need to be on keypress since i seemed to burn it just tying to do one jump.

I can't seem to get controls working in the web version either... I saw what you were going for and like the idea of the forced gravity changes. Also, dug the graphic style.

love the look of this game, i could see this being expanded on into something really deep. i love how you can jump from the top world to the bottom too, nicely done

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.
