by fauge - Compo Entry

Press the arrow keys to move! hold it down too long and you wont be able to stop yourself and you will move out of the arena!

(Fixed the controls not being able to do much)

Note:This entry was done in about 8 hours time because I was busy this weekend(life). I had to attempt to make a game that fits the theme and this was my attempt!

Well, seems like this was done in very little time. I didn't really get how I'm supposed to control the game, I've won and lost few times without actually knowing what's going on. Then my ball went seamlessly through the opponent. I've lost. O.o

glad to see others that didn't have much time, should have a seperate extreme-compo or something like that ;-)
Well you did it! The Game idea is nice. The controls lack some kind of feedback, I don't really know how I influence the game - thats the biggest issue. Another issue is that the game ends way too fast - changing the game so that you need to win more rounds could solve that (I would suggest at least 10 rounds).

I like the game but it is kind of too easy scince you can move through your opponent. Nice work anyways!

If you develop this further, it would be good to have a faster restart and much less chance of winning-by-doing-nothing-at-all.

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.
