First part is a race to collect the most power, and the second part is tag where the loser is the tagger. It's an interesting mix. The title screen sort of got me confused on how to start the game as I thought I have to click the start button. I actually have to get the two sprites touching the play button.

Unable to run it with wine on linux. Also it is a multiplayer game, which means that i probably couldnt really have enjoyed it anyway. I could only listen to the music for a second, sounds good!
But, what do the characters between 'What' and 's going on ??' in your description mean?

it really needs to read your description to understand what's going on, keep the good work on ;)

Rehacked says ...
Aug 26, 2014 @ 9:26am

Very nice game to play on multi. I could not pass second level, but after few upgrades it can be really good game.

OH MY GOODNESS! This is definitely one of the most fun 2 player games I've seen this LD. I was screaming and laughing trying to catch my room mate! Good work!

Rehacked says ...
Aug 29, 2014 @ 1:04pm

Cool multi style game, really hard to win when the other player gets their bar up though. Controls were good!

I enjoyed this game. Easy intuitive controls and clean graphics, and multiplayer, to boot! Great work.

Rehacked says ...
Aug 31, 2014 @ 7:06am

@2HitMatt : i know that its hard to win in that codition by now the player who has to chase gains extra speed i know thats not enough we were working on some extra features which we could not end them cuz of time.
Thanks Everybody for your FeedBackS.

Very fun game with an unique gameplay mechanics. I just found kind of hard for the player to steal from the other.

Five stars for the music. And plus for smooth gameplay and fun. You don't see many multiplayers around so well done for that too!

Sep 2, 2014 @ 5:58pm

Nice game! I like music and concept. Who made this addictive music? Good job! :)

A little hard to understand at first, but it's fun to play with a friend, so good job! Controls are smooth and did not find any bugs.

StMatn says ...

Great concept!
I noticed, that you may want to rethink the wall-jump implementation, since it seems, that the ceiling counts as a wall, so you can kind of "stick" to the ceiling, if you reach it once and then spam the jump key.
I can't tell you why, but when the game switched into the second phase, I had dramatic drops in framerate.
Besides that, the game is really nice!
Greak work.

Immediately recognized the music, you should credit the author of the music in the game/description. (Not only in the comments)

To the actual game: The idea is really great with the two game phases, although it is really confusing without instructions. Sadly I could only play by myself, but the controls are good and it looks like it would be a lot of fun.

Rehacked says ...
Sep 12, 2014 @ 2:37pm

@StMatn: thatnks for feedback i knew that but didnt had a time to fix it. you can use it as a feature in game! ;)
@klianc09: Many thanks to you ive completely forgotten that thing.thank you very much

@Rehacked
:D Very slick reaction!
There are no bugs in games, but only misinterpreted features :P
Please have a bonus star: *
Good luck on the final rating :)

Good little idea here BUT I I spotted the Bomberman gameboy icons on the first screen. Easy to recreate too, so no need to steal ;) Good entry though.

Rehacked says ...
Sep 16, 2014 @ 7:30am

@DesignerNap : Hmmm.... i dont know what to say cuz i didnt mean to steal something! We didnt had an artist so my teammate get that art from the net and i didnt know its from bomberman. anyway sorry about that

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.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
