44 was the highest I got (so far). really nice game, and the entire look of it's very cool. The variable spacing between the blocks and such really kept me on my toes / kept me from falling into some kind of safe rhythm. Good job!

The graphic style is pretty unique.

Interesting game, felt like it needed a little bit more in terms of mechanics but it was fun for a good while, good work :).

Nice graphics stylization and are those bass guitar sounds when you move left or right ? :D

I like how each movement has its own sound.

Gameplay is fun. My main critique is with the graphics, the backgound object are too colorful and detailed compared to the things that are actually part of the gameplay. The game is simple enough that it isn't distracting, but it's confusing for the first seconds in the game (The cyan cylinders in particular scream interactive).

Also cool to see someone using the Blender game engine!

For those of you who can't play the game, here's a video of gameplay. Hope to get it to other platforms ASAP.

Fun game, though there's no difficulty curve. Once you figure it out, you can just keep playing forever. It would be nice if the pace speeds up the longer the game runs.

First I thought that the game was too hard, then suddenly I got 150+. Adding sync with the music would have helped me in the beginning and I also think that you could have made it successively harder by adding obstacles in a pattern that could then be mapped to the music. I liked how the coming obstacles appeared in the field of view, nice implementation of a classic game!

Interesting concept, audio got a bit annoying if you click too fast. Also feel like the delay on the character popping back into its original form could be a bit longer. Good job!

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.
