Hi there. Good job for finishing a game, it gets easier, I think I started about five times before first completing... hang in there! Needs more to do - more gems, first next thing. Good job!

When I ran the game the mood of the game immediately grabbed me. I don't quite understand the goal of the game though. At first I was chasing the blue circles, but then they turned red, so I ran away from them.

I did notice the pickupables though, so I collected a few. :)

So just played your game and yes there are many tings broken, but in anwser to your description:

pathetic entry: Definatly not, ive seen alot worse by more experienced devs (Have you seen stronghold 3???)!!!!!!!
ugly: Not ugly but basic.
Broken: Yeah sure but all games need more work and in the short amount of time you did amazing!
Keep up the good work and dont put yourself down!
broken

Pretty good for a first entry, I wasn't sure about the yellow circles. Keep making games and you will get better

Hi, I think we were talking on IRC before the jam. I love how fluid it feels. It would be nice to collide with the walls of the screen, though.

Not bad for your first. It's a nice start (:

Did the lights do anything? I couldn't tell.

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.
