Don't you touch da bouncy

by Phyyl - Jam Entry

A very simple game that I made in order to have an entry! I had lots of school work to do so I did this in 4-5 hours! All you have to do is to move with the arrows and avoid the yellow squares and the red square. Every time the red square bounces, it spawns a new yellow square. You get 1 point every time a yellow square bounces, and two for the red. Have fun! :D

I truly believed that I would not touch da bouncy. I was sorely mistaken.

Lots of polish in a simple concept, I like it! Nice work with the particles and visual/audio reactions when the big red block hits the side. It could probably use some graphics though - the filled boxes seemed a little lascking.

The hit detection felt a bit fuzzy, but beyond that, beautiful in its simplicity. I love the way it looks, I love the way the screen shakes when the bouncy hits the sides, I love the name.

The graphics and sound were really elegant in their simplicity. Solid execution of a good, simple, fun concept.

@el-pepi, try to install OpenAL and/or .Net 4.5 . They are located in the Installers folder. Hope this helps!

327! Wonderful game! Graphics is simple, but looks very nice with all these particles and shaking screen.

Simple game but addictive! Very clear and easy mechanism, and it works fine. A great time killer, good job!

Nice gameplay. Would've been a lot better if you had more time to devote to it.

How does it compare to Greeny GRUB ?

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.
