I like the sepia theme, and the 'low-rez' style graphics and audio work really well together.

The collisions and difficulty feel a little off, but I really like the art and music!

I like the concept of this, but i kinda find the diagonal lines a bit too difficult to walk on (i often end up being slowed down anyway). Love the simplistic style :)

Its hard at the beginning, you have to try many times to understand the gameplay; The sound annoyed me, i think its the volume; And there is a kind of challenging;

I feel the same. It looks cool. But it is hard to understand the basic gameplay. how does enemies dies ? how do you score points ?

ahhhhhh yeah, I should probably try to interwork some sort of design that actually teaches the player on how to play rather than require them to read the text below. Praise is appreciated! As is feedback! Also thanks SeriousDeath for pointing that out, I found it that way as well but I kinda just rushed, I'll look into fixing it soon!

Hi there. Looks interesting. Could absolutely not work out how to play it... line movement faster, but ... death, death... no weapon. Needs instructions. Liked the music.

Simple cool idea. Not sure what I was looking at in the background (a TV Test pattern maybe?)

Cool! The concept is nice, and the lo-rez art and music are great! It's hard to keep to the lines, though. Maybe some small bit of auto-snapping would make the game much more enjoyable.

Really interesting concept. I grasped the gameplay quite quickly, but I can see why other people are finding it confusing.

Reminds me of the sort of fun little game you might find on the Atari 2600.

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.
