- Graphics are nice, sprites have fluid animation, the particles are great too.

Though I wish there was sound

There is sound...

Anyway, the graphics and sound are fine, and it fits the theme, however I find it very difficult to control my ship. Perhaps making the direction of the ship controlled by the mouse, or alternatively making everything slower, would help.

Nice concept, art works well. Although lack some sound, the operation feels smooth and the difficulty is proper.

Good job!

The only note I have is that it took me a little while to figure out that the mouse doesn't control rotation, just toggles shooting. Found myself wanting to fire with the space bar. Sound was really nice.

Hard game! But quite well put together. A little bit of an easier time in the beginning would have been nice. Cool sprites. Nice that you have multiple enemy types. Also like the idea of the spawning areas moving. I wish I would shoot and destroy the spawning areas too though!

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 ( 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.
