Glad to see LibGDX-based entry!
It's neat. I got 700+

Interesting concept, nice game.
Reminded me of tetris.

Nice and polished entry.
When you turn twice the ordering of the blocks get confused. :-) (not a bug)

I will try it on my android pad!

Very fun and intriguing! I got over 700, too, but it looks like 1000+ is possible. As I was playing, I was wondering if the player can avoid losing pieces. If blue is closer to red and red is closer to blue, one of them has to be sacrificed eventually, right? Maybe you can tap them to change direction, or after a while they disappear because it takes some skill to keep them away from the edge? Or just let them perish!

Nice concept here :3
Some music could have really improved it!

768pts ! Nice concept. Probably very dangerous with a real phone !

The main problem for me is that sometimes you have to lose if you have blocks to land on the 2 opposite sides and that they are in the wrong order.

Nice concept! I was not very good at the game, but it was very fun.

An interesting idea that could potentially use combos and rhtyhm elements. There isn't much to it, currently, though.

Very fun. Kind of strikes me as one of those apps that could surprisingly catch on and be very popular. Maybe try it out? It definitely has the potential.

Nice concept and cute execution. Will get boring after a while, but could be really a nice basis for some more variations on the same idea.

Good game, would have been nice if you could rotate the device as the control

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.
