The flor is a bit slipy, the physic is a bit random.
Now the game is not very interesting but it could be very fun , with all this "randomness" if you add an scoring system. (just a chronometer trying to survive as long as you can, keeping the best time)

Not very interesting and it crashed after a couple of rounds

Seems like there is a physics issue, plus not sure what the goal is.

The controls were quite sluggish, and I couldn't figure out precisely what was causing the sudden changes of velocity. It didn't seem to be the orange balls, because sometimes I could be right next to them without being affected, and other times I'd fly away suddenly without any orange ball being near. The same with the rotating arrows.

But overall, the use of all edges of the screen as the only loss condition and the use of physics to push you toward the edge might hold some gameplay potential.

Any reason the platforms were practically the same color as the background? I didn't even realize there were platforms for the first few seconds of gameplay.

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.
