Being able to jump to get on the block at the last second is a fun touch!

Sorry, I'm gonna be the QA guy!
- When I touched the top of the screen I got stuck (probably the same for all sides)
- If I touched the green square without being on top of it, I still won.

Interesting concept, a bit like a speed Snake without the tail part. Would be cool if the difficulty ramped up quicker because honestly I got a little bored by the 8th level

Not fun at all

I like it but it needs more objective and a reward based system, good job overall though.

Fun for a moment, but lacks memorable game play and the music is repetitive. Also, the graphics are not the best.

A neat idea, but just a tad bit simple and bland. If there were more going on like obstacles or enemies it'd add to the challenge. I dig the concept though, good job!

Nice small game. A little repetitive.

Innovative - could have done with more puzzle variety though

The blocks do indeed seem to flop. Very simple but does the job, I also like the inclusion of at least a simple drum track so that it's not just dead silence behind it. :)

Wish the character moved faster and there were some more mechanics added. Nice base game! Good job on completing!

Well I got bugged in the middle of the new ground when the level changed. But I like the idea :D
You could take this to be a multiplayer game of some sort. (Think Mario Party Minigames)

Liked:
- Graphical cues. I instantly knew that going to green was good, because everyone knows: green=good, lava=bad
- The ability to jump to save yourself

Disliked:
- Very repetitive. Soundtrack, gameplay, textures. With nothing to break the monotony this game has little replay level, and I became bored very quickly

I like the idea but the controls are a too floaty for me.

WASD-only controls were problematic with my non-qwerty keyboard, maybe you should add the arrows as a fallback.

Neat idea, could have used a retry button though.

Apart from being a tad bit repetitive, it lives up to what it says it would: the blocks do flop ;)

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.
