fast-paced, though a restart button would be nice! :)

Nice game! Like @bofink suggested, a restart button would be better than closing and reopening the game

Pretty decent for your first game in LÖVE. Some sort of score (bullets doged) would have been a nice addition. Sound could also add a lot to the game.

A good start but this need more gameplay mechanics. Something a simple as a chrono to calculate how much time you survived.

Standing in the verry bottom or top of the screen makes it very easy cause bullets rarely get there.

It is what it is, eh? Neat for a first game. I didn't grasp trigonometric stuff until much later after I created my first game (and still don't fully).

It's really fast, I ragequitted after dying like 4 times in a row. Though I think for the 48 hours you - probably - had it would have been nice if you made a restart button.

Actually harder than you would think. :)

I clicked on this game because it had math in the title! The game runs really smoothly and your collision detection is very nice--it's over unusually quickly, but I felt that the movement was very well-paced. Thank you for the game!

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 ( 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.
