Very simple gameplay. I like that. You could port it to mobile. Think about it. :)
I think it's missing some "game over" screen so I can retry easily.

@hbocao
I actually plan to port it to android, as I used libGDX it should be pretty simple :)
I was about to add the game over screen, took a look at the time - 2:50 am (which is, as I'm german, 10 minutes before LD ends). I tried to squeeze in a restart key (at R), but it's horribly bugged. Let's see if I can fix that in a post compo version :)

Awesome but there is no game over screen and it is freezing. It's still cool though!

Pretty fun! Collision and movement controls could use some cleaning up, but it worked well enough to get a few good rounds in.

The mouse's hitbox doesn't seem to match the sprite at all. I've "died" without even touching a box. Also, the mouse doesn't seem to really run where I click so much as run and then stop short of where I clock. And freezing the game on a game over with no quick-and-easy means of resetting? Unforgivable in a game like this.

My score was about 9000. As others said, graphics, collision detection and freeze on game over are the major points to fix for a post-compo (if you are making one :D).

Very simple game, nice graphics. I do miss a game-over screen cause it just froze when I lost (which confused me) And maybe some more variation in boxes/traps would make the game more interesting.

Good work, though I think it's a bit cheesy.

Great music! But when a box landed on me my mouse got stuck and there was no obvious way to restart. Also, on fullscreen broke everything pretty badly (clicking to move stopped working and everything became extremely laggy, even the music began skipping. This is on OS/X 10.9.5)

The mouse was cute and the music was good!

I think the hit detection was a little off. There were a lot of times I wasn't close to one of the boxes and I would get stuck. I wasn't really sure how to restart. Sometimes there were lulls of no boxes and then other times there were a ton.

Fun idea, I love how he'd run faster if the cursor was further away!

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.
