Hop through space instantaneously to get Dots!

Interestingly enough, the game appears to take place within a mug of coffee...

I really like the bouncy-ness of the tiles.

Ahh, very fun, too bad about the lack of levels. End level was quite fun to play with. :)

Pretty and funny game. I had problems with the physics, and the red boxes frustrated me. Sad also that there were no music. At the end, still a good idea. Here's my playthrough: http://youtu.be/XU56XeEnbxc

Art style is awesome. Very good casual game, will be much better if with juicy sfx, please go on and update it!

Good job!

The mechanic is really interesting, but the hopping was unpredictable in some ways. Visuals are spot on.

Web version not loading - make sure you're linking to the shared folder with the html file and the unity file in! Not the html file itself!

Fun idea, but a little hard to control where you're pointing. The art was really great! Also, I couldn't get the Web version to work.

I love your idea of playing in a cup of coffee with the sugar cubes, I love the graphics and I feel the labyrinth concept is quite fun.

However, this game feels so glitchy and unresponsive at some times (jumps usually work, usually don't, explosions don't make the player bounce at times, sometimes the single jump is way too high...). The lack of polish makes it lose some points.

Still, I like the idea, would love to play a more polished version.

Bouncy tiles are a fun twist, but the mouse-jump seems buggy, which makes things tricky.

would love to play a version with less bugs and more polished. the look is very good but the controls feel too soft. good job!

Dec 22, 2014 @ 8:43pm

Very good entry! You should have given the hop a different button though, why make the player hold on to the mouse if movement and jumping is all with the keyboard?

I really loved the gameplay feeling in your game! The bouncy tiles were incredible :D I would also prefer another button for the jump though as someone else also suggested. Overall it was amazing!

Interesting game!
Bouncing tiles are fun and mechanics is cool but a bit hard

A great game that needs polish as others have already said. One of my favorite entries still!

Beautiful game, seriously impaired by the physics. I'm frequently being flung, launched, and otherwise bumped into the wrong place, especially during hops. Can I suggest adding a little height during the hop, not so high as to miss colliding with the pickups, but high enough to avoid skimming the top of the lovely fluffy bouncy blocks? Of course, if this is just part of the challenge and I'm bad at your game, I apologise.

Nice effort. Simple mechanism (althought I'd add SPACE to jump too so that you could play with just keyboard). Not much to add, this is simply a good entry. Nice gfx. Just adding more content (=levels) and maybe variety of other pieces and that's it.

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.
