This is HOT! I love the music, the controls are tight, the gameplay is decently challenging and does a good job of introducing the player to progressing mechanics, and I'm not sure if the typos were on purpose but they give it just a bit more character which I love. Overall this gets a big thumbs up from me!

I hope this job is worth it...

Simple yet fun, and challenging to boot. Difficulty curve is nicely mapped out and the controls are tight enough so that if you die, it's your own fault. I recommend seeing it through to the end, since there might be some...surprises :P

Really like this little platform! I found it much challenging.
It lacks a score system with compos anyway!
I've a lot of fun playing it. Well done! :)
And.. great music!!

That was intense, nice game! I was worried I'd end up getting stuck and incapable of winning, but I did it! Those vans made me jump first time round!

This was great fun, a great example of what you can do with a simple mechanic but great execution. I found myself jumping around in beat with the music. A combo counter would be a great addition, I was already trying to chain car kills with the flying things.

Man, great game! Really cleanly finished, simple but very fun!

The game is nice, it all feels really good. I have one thing though: once you die the intensity of the game is really low again because of the way the levels are designed. Right from the start of the level it should be high intensity action I think, because now dieing is really off putting . Next to that, very enjoyable :)

Antivir says it has a virus called Dropper.Gen. Is it a antivir issue or does it really has it?

Christopf, I very much hope it doesn't.
I checked it on virustotal.com, only avira seems to notice something. I think it is false alert, since other antiviruses are ok with this file.

The music is a little bit to intense for me. I couldn't really enjoy the game like that.

Really well made little game there - incredibly fun! Best music this LD too :D

Nailed it. Hard to believe this was made in only 48.

Music and jump speed feel perfectly timed, so the music feels like a part of the game. The effects are killer and make it addicting to play. Lots of different AI which create unique scenarios when combined against the player. Like other's have said, a combo counter would be the only thing missing from this. One of the best LD31 entries I've seen thus far.

Simple, but well executed.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
