Congratulations my friends! Go to see you guys in action! I liked the light effect on the background and found the game pretty hard, but in the overall is a great mini-game.

It was a bit hard to control for me, but thats might just for me :D I liked the idea and the graphics anyways! Nice work!

Fun little lunar lander! I like the screen effects. Really gives it a nice touch. Took me a while to figure out down was the booster though.

Good game!
It was hard to understand the controls, but after that, the game became an interesting challenge!

Very hard game to get the hang of! I played for quite a bit, but I was never even able tot get close to winning.

Good thing you included a tutorial as well. I would have been completely lost otherwise!

Over all, Good job!

It's really hard to control the game. My ship? constantly flies up, and I can do nothing to land it (

Great production - audio and graphics! Really hard to play, though.

I think it's a little too hard. I can't control anything, i explode in a second, too high, or in the lava, or in the wall. But graphism are pretty cool, with great effect (with light and waves on the background.). But could be funnier if i could play without dying every 2 second xD

Nice art, very difficult, but pretty fun. I didn't hear any music so that would have been good to have. I think that if you had made the lava start lower, give more water bubbles, and/or tweaked the rocket so that it was easier to control, it would have been more fun.

Good job!

Tricky controls, but fun to master. I didn't quite understand what energy or resistance were, and the water only seemed to work on one part of the lava? The instructions were appreciated, but very confusing to figure out. Anyway, I felt it was an accomplishment to beat the game. =)

Neat gameplay, the mechanic is interesting but the controls were difficult and I didn't understand what you had to do for the first little bit.

The ship turned a little too slowly for my liking.

It looks cool, but damn how I suck in this game..

Man, this is hard, like really hard. I was really struggling to jet around and get water without over boosting and smashing into the wall. That said, it is fun and the graphics are nice.

What do the other stats do?

The documentation is hard to find and it's hard to control

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.
