Nice work! I might just be bad at the game, but after several rounds I still couldn't afford any upgrades though. Maybe they are priced a bit high?

I think this is a challaging game with nice graphics. Sometimes when I teleported, I was outside the map and I couldn't continue.

I really enjoyed this. Also like the hills that popup and change the level layout.

Can't really think of anything to criticize.

Well done.

So cool! You might want to set different difficulty levels though, it was too hard for me :P

I like the powerups between rounds and the mechanics are well thought out for the time frame.

Nice lowpoly art, Good action game. I had some problem with the control though.

Graphics are good and game play is fun. That flamethrower-like spell's sound is unbearable, though.

Very, very good! love the upgrade and spell system. There is a bug where if you shift you sometimes fall through the terrain... Still reloaded the game to play again though, to much fun

Very fun game. The only thing is the sound of the flamethrower that become annoying in long term.

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.
