Hey you made an amazing... er... whatever it is! Just watching the cylinder collecting the ammunition/balls is great, lovely random jerks around the place and dodging. Seems almost as though another person is controlling it, someone who has had too much coffee. Great job !

Very interesting. I like the retro-style sounds and font.

Uh what? I mean this is trippy and amusing as hell, but it seems to be playing itself except for my attack key. I "played" until 118 and then got bored. No idea how to rate this, not really sure if it's a game. Cool physics and movement though.

A bit stange because you have no control

What a quirky game :) A positive experience, if short-lived and a bit shallow, haha.

My god was that satisfying. The the theme is a stretch but it was really fun. Well done!

Cool idea, the gameplay was really frantic and fast paced.

Interesting experience, not that great game I have to say. Giving a score for a game that is so random and where player input has so little to say does not really work.

The audio is really good. The hit sounds were very satisfying, and the music was good. But that's about it. My best time was 45 seconds. But I think that was a glitch. If I kept holding space I would score hits over and over again.

I don't know what I just played but it was a lot of fun! I liked the graphics effects with the streaks.

the sounds were really top notch.
Otherwise, there wasn't really much gameplay.
Also, what's the connection to the theme?

Haha, crazy! I was struggling to figure out any tactics here, but the experience was oddly satisfying nonetheless.

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.
