I like the art in the screen shots. Unfortunately I could not get the game running on my computer. I am on windows 7, if that helps you at all.

Also can't get it to run on windows. Just crashes on start

Sparks a bit of nostalgia for the old game boy. Nice idea, and nice take on the theme.

Might want to double check the controls on the color matcher, Sometimes J would work, sometimes K would. Does it depend on what I start with?

A lot of the games seemed too simple. I liked the artwork, however, and the quantity of minigames helped too!

It runs fine for me, just unzip it guys !
It's amazing how many minigames there are in that "console". It's a great use of the theme. Sadly most of them are a bit unplayable... That's why i can't give it many stars...

A few of the games could be beaten with button mashing J, and in pong and the racing one your player moved way too slowly. Also even some basic 'beeps' and 'boops' would have improved the game significantly.

Works great, and a great take of the theme!

Nice concept. The color matching game was really interesting. I couldn't quite figure it out, are you supposed to find two blocks that are the closest in color? Really cool. But I couldn't collect all the blocks.

Cool game! I fell in love with the game with the bird. Nice little twist for the One-Screen-theme :) Good job!

Can't run it - crashes before it even comes up. I'm on Windows 8. Looks interesting though.

For those of you who can't run it, PLEASE scroll up to my previous comment. Also if you don't understand the game, read the readme.txt

Not sure if its broken for me but all I get is a snowman and you button mash until you win, j is the only button that worked... :/

Can't run like other comments, win 8.

Really interesting interpretation of the theme! I love the visuals, and the gameplay is all pretty solid!

I am using windows 7 and it is running okay here. Thought it was p fun ^.^

Lots of previous games on one screen put into one. Coding a pong API in 48hrs is pretty great! Good job!

Is a cool way to deal with the themes restrictions. Can't believe you had time to make it all not just the 6? mini games but also kind of a console that they all play on, Well done! Other than that I think you know as well as I do what needs work and what doesn't.

Cool concept with the theme!

Games are interesting, but pretty casual and easy.
But anyway, 5/5, I liked it

Cool take on theme, and it's great you got a few mini-games done, but each is a bit too casual and easy for me. I'd have preferred to have seen half the games, each with double the time spent. Nice job though. :)

very good game ,

Cool idea but it sucks having to relearn controls for each game instead of the same controls being used for each one, but having a different use.

Fun idea. Nice little games. The snowman one is the best.

Nice and simply game. I would suggest improving Ai a bit.

Good interpretation of the theme, although because there were so many games some of them didn't feel fleshed out.

I didn't quite get the idea behind the color matcher. The game I played, there seemed to be leftover tiles after I cleared the similar ones out.

Why do one game when you can do many? An it's playing on nostalgia which is always awesome :)
I'm surprised the size of the game too, quite optimal :)
If only there was some old 8 bit sounds... aaaaw.

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.
