Super fun! Just wish it had some music and sounds. I could see myself playing this for a good while if it did.

A clean and simple game, very nice. Felt lacking in graphics though but great fun to play!

I had a few input problems with this game - apparently if you're already going up+left, pressing space won't do anything (this caught me out a few times). Lots of potential here, though - especially if we had some sound effects.

Pretty great little game, and for once one that seems to be completely finished -- except for the soundtrack -- as I don't see what could be added!
Maybe that's the problem, maybe it wasn't ambitious enough? :D
Great job!

Really enjoyed it! :D

The "Add Difficulty" thing made for a somewhat masochistic experience at times, but was a particularly interesting mechanic.

Was good fun, and I've rated it well :)

Neat Idea

Thanks all ! :D
I was quite buzy this week-end so I didn't had the time to loot at the music library for Processing but I will do it later !
I think I will improve block's movements and may be add some difficulty with another obstacle (which can be seen in the Images folder).

Sweet concept. Reminds me of that "hot-rope-jump" in mario party, but this takes it to a whole new level :D
The difficulty progresses a bit slowly, but pressing shift a few times makes up for that! :D

Simple and fun, I like how you can choose the difficulty on the fly. One thing I wonder is whether it would be good to add variable jump height; I'm usually a fan of that in games and it would come in handy in this one, but on the other hand the fixed jump height and speed actually add to the challenge. Up to you, I'll keep playing it some more either way :D

One my favorite so far really like the design the only things is i hate to play the arrow but it has nothing to do with your game
Great work it's really simple but that's what make it addictive :D

Simple, clean an enjoyable. Adding difficulty feature is neat, you can make speed runs :D
Nothing to say more... just good game for few minutes of pleasure. Good job!

The mechanism is simple but fun. Maybe you can try limit the movement in air to one-dimension?

I've had an idea like this in the back of my head for a while now. Top-down with jumping. You beat me to it fair and square. Nice game, gets very difficult after a while.

I loved the idea of increasing difficulty by your own.
Good work !

Love the idea to make the game harder while your playing.

Well made!

Really fun to play, even increasing the difficulty level manually on-the-spot. That yellow block surprised me when it suddenly ambushed me :D

Once the game actually got going with the higher difficulty it was really fun. I was surprised to see myself playing it over and over again. I wish it had some sound to keep me occupied as well as playing it. Good job.

"Hum, how I am supposed to jump if it is a top do*jump* OH YEAH THAT'S BRILLIANT" - me, a few minutes ago.

Really simple yet fun and addictive game. I got a bit frustrated because some times I couldn't jump AND move at the same time (usually when moving diagonally) .

And as other said, music would have been great but HEY, it's really ok for a Jam !

You can jump and move at the same time but maybe your keyboard can't do it. ^^"

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.
