A different take on the old "sliding puzzle" type games.

Your mission is to guide the little bug to the lower right corner with the warm green glow.

The game gets progressively harder by each completed level.

So start up those brain receptors and solve the maze for the poor little creature!

Awesome idea, I couldn't get passed the first level, I was so close and ended up failing.

Good concept. Might make a very good mobile game with some polish

Kind of a cool idea. Moves a little slow for my taste, but I like it.

Hi there. Liked the idea. Completed level one, got brain knotted up on level two. Shame no sounds. Like the speed of the bug, drives experimentation, without letting you just sit there. Good job!

I found a bug in this game!! (Not the walking bug :D)
I was moving the blocks arround when I trapped the insect in one, and the insect went through the wall.

Cool game! The fact that you can glitch the bug through walls by moving the platform underneath should probably be fixed though. Also, a "x2 speed" button or something like that would be nice.
Overall I really like the innovation, this is a fun puzzle game!

(I notice you're letting yourself be judged in the audio category, but I didn't hear any audio... maybe a bug? I just won't rate audio)

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.
