Beautiful game! I can't get very far, and I don't quite understand what to do when I can't see cubes. Neat idea though. I'd like to see where you take it.

The game is quite addictive but I think I'm experiencing a bug where in a lot of the colours I just can't see any cubes. I also never get coloured cubes, only white ones.

I'm imagining what this game would be without the bug when ranking it, though!

Nice idea, but honestly: I don't get it. Sometimes, I don't know what to do :D

But the visualization is great. Sound ist good. And it fits the theme perfectly!

Nice concept and implementations. It reminds me a little to the game "Time Rifters".

Cool game, though no challenge? I just kept wiggling my mouse in the end and dominated.

Really pretty! Gorgeous particles!

But I really don't know what I doing half the time, or why I get "chromasick"... Or not.

The mouse controls are completely unintuitive, I couldn't do anything with them, much better with keyboard.

I feel like some effort at making it understandable will make it excellent!

2,716,846 - Really cool idea, but I found by moving my mouse in circles like a crazy man the game is really easy (compared to looking for the right blocks) I dunno if that was a feature :P But really fun, awesome visuals. Well done (:

@Tinimations @Conk Yeah, spinning the mouse is a problem that I couldn't find a solution for in time. It greatly reduces the difficulty of the game, like you said. I hope that people trying the game out now will not do it so they can get the full experience. Regardless of that problem I hope you enjoyed it, and thanks for playing!

@Tuism Thanks for the feedback! The game could do with more clarity, especially in relation to Chromasickness. On the topic of input, I personally find the mouse to be quicker and the keyboard usable but slow. I figured though that everyone would have a preference so I put both control schemes in so that people could use what they liked.

Interesting gameplay. I couldn't manage to get past the second shift, and it was sometimes hard to hit the blocks or tell whether I was doing okay or not, but not a bad game.

Woah that gets bright. Found myself cheating by flailing my mouse all over to try and charge. Unless this was secretly a mouse flailing simulator, and in the case good on you mate, you got me good.

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.
