-if the boomerang is out of reach, grab onto an enemy head or use the springiness of the pieces (especially the yellow ones) to bounce.
-if the boomerang is buried beneath you, hold up while tapping C to dig down until you can grab it.
-if you are surrounded by the swarm, try grabbing and holding on to enemy heads to break up the clog. (Keep in mind they can fly!)
-wedging a piece into an elbow of the platform makes a spinner, which helps keep the swarm at bay! Pushing objects towards the center of the screen make this easier.
Thanks for Playing!
P.S. (Feedback Question)
Boomerang retrieval is clearly the number one issue. For the post-jam version I'll highlight the current grabbable object, and giving the player a button to do one of the following things:
A: Teleport the boomerang to yourself (wielded)
B: Teleport the boomerang to a random location (like pressing Z)
C: Add a new boomerang to the level.

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.
