Good fun!

My favourite parts are the music, sounds and mouse controls.

Quite hard though.

Surprisingly fun for being as simple as it is. Also, Penguims.

Man it was hard! Only got to 9 after a lot of plays, finally rage quit! Music and sound effects are great. Should make it being bigger gaps at the beginning and have the penguin grow with each fish.

This game is even harder than flappy bird, and at least as addictive.

I made it to 5... yay..

Hi there. Not rated yet. Game would not begin playing (Chrome/W8.1)... The loading screen is displayed, but click/drag to start is ignored. Music plays.

This is really cute - especially the audio, it really brings everything together. Clicking on the blood-pool to restart is really a nice macabre touch.

I like that your game takes no time to replay as there is little delay between games. I also like that the game is very straightforward. The music goes with it as well. Other entrants take note, make your game this easy to play, restart and fall into and you'll create addicts for your game. Nice entry!

Nicely fitting music, and funny sound effects. It was fun and challenging, but got repetitive pretty fast.

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.
