It's an interesting concept, but sometimes I really don't understand how I end up losing.

It was fun to begin with, but then it felt a bit unfair, because if a large beam started centred at your location, it didn't feel like enough time to react. Also eventually it broke, just instantly saying I'd lost, wait a bit on the end then beep and say I lost again with 0 seconds, without showing any lights.

The first few tries I died really quick, then I figured out the pattern for certain lights appearing so I survived a bit longer. The controls feel good as well. :)

Other then that, the gameplay is pretty simple and it's only fun for a minute or two.

took me a little while to figure out the game. There was a bug in the end where I would loose instantly and would just repeat the "Game Over" animation / state until i quit the game.

Other than that, had fun trying to dodge the light.

Only critique would be to make it a little friendlier. you have a ladybug in a very dark environment. Maybe the lady bug could dodge massive raindrops? Or it could be a thief dodging the light. the ladybug and environment didnt make sense to me.

Good first attempt and kudos on finishing a very tough challenge in 72hrs! (got here from your blog btw)

Nice idea, but a bit too simple.
The best strategy is to run in a straight line as the lights spawn on top of you, and it gets boring pretty fast.
Sometimes its just impossible to avoid a light.

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.
