Screen Cutterby squirrel - Compo Entry
"In Screen Cutter you take control of a small ball living insider a computer screen. To advance to the next level, you need to reach the goal flag. To do this, you have the ability to cut and paste parts of the computer screen you live in. Since these parts are solid, they can be used to reach new places. But be careful! If you fall off from your screen, you will have to start all over again!"
Screen Cutter is a platformer where you can cut and paste pieces of the screen where you exist to reach new places. I decided to take the part of "One Screen" literally, trying to use it as part of the platforming mechanics. There are 6 levels in the game and it includes a few instructions.
Controls: Move and jump using the arrow keys. Cut and paste parts of the computer screen by using the mouse.

It's a very simple game, but I hope you enjoy it!

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.
