Very funny idea! I have never thought a fly to be such interesting, and the feel of just avoiding being kill is great! Good job!

Great interpretation of the theme! GJ!

the good:
creative take on the theme.
quick and simple to get into.
genuinely exciting and thrilling to evade the dreaded flyswatter. I wasn't expecting to feel so exhilarated the first time I got out of the way of that thing.
the bad:
the UI is a bit unusual. Having the player's fly-points hidden off in the bottom left is un-intuitive, as it's not a very common place to look. Also, the opening text and the text that display when you die kind of linger in the top left corner (it might just be my 1600x900 monitor having a wider range of view than it should, though.)
The buzzing sound after every jump gets a bit irritating. Recording a few different sound effects and playing one randomly would have been a big help.,

Nice! More exciting and fun than i thought it would be. Time wraps back to 1s if you survive longer than 60s, which somewhat defeats the purpose of having a timer in a survival game. Great to see someone else from the microphone-recorded-game-sound-users-club. :D

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.
