fancy enough to get me interested! and I'm glad I did, this was a very funny play. I forgive you!
btw, can you get to the telephone on the left? or is it just there to make me try until I die? xD because I tried so many times and I couldn't reach it

WTF is that game !
hm... I found four phones... Wait a minute this room loops on itself.
I don't know what this game is about, but it's well done.

That last part made me laugh :) Is Advanced supposed to work at all? The Action button should be DOWN button so I can play with the comfort of just one hand. Finally, doesn't really fit the theme?

Dude, this game rocks. I don't know why you just showed a picture of the settings as the main screenshot, since the game itself has a very cool aesthetic.

What really made the game was the sort of broken-english phone calls and the equally broken level names. Reminded me of VVVVVV. I don't know if that was on purpose or if you're just french, but it was neat anyhow.

@SuperDisk If you go through all of my past LD games, you'll notice the screenshots aren't representative of the games themselves.

I loved the visuals - they reminded me of Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy with the block colours on a simulated CRT! :P Game was very short, but that's understandable. Good job! :)

The graphics are cool and the game has a lot of variation for something created in such a short time. Unfortunately the sound gets very annoying and repetitive very quickly.

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.
