I liked it when I trapped myself. Very funny.

I liked the music, but difficulty is too low and sometimes the blocks form a wall I couldn't jump over. Concept is good, keep at it.

I actually didn't mind the slow pace. It is a bit easy, but it made for a relaxing experience. A wall jump would have solved the problem with walls forming which you cannot jump over. Also, really dug the music. Well done.

Pretty simple retro game. Controls work nice but took a while to get used to.

The Good: Music was great. I like that it was easy - a good casual game for average people who don't have a lot of video game skill. The challenge is to not get trapped. The bad: I could stand in one place and survive for a really long time. I think it might be more fun if you also added a secondary goal, like trying to hit the blue blocks while avoiding the red. Also, the screen fills up pretty quickly, you might think about adding some exploding blocks to keep taking the levels down and changing them up?

Cool entry! Quite simple but fairly enjoyable. Tried several times but I'm still a big failure :)

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. 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.
