The music in this was really great. Having a delay between clicks makes the game challenging.

@Paperscraps you can reduce delay in the "Upgrades" section!

Liked it very much. Music stopped playing for me at about 50 seconds into the game. Nicely done!

Nice sfx and bgm, also I noticed the pop sound will follow the click from left to right channel!

@tonypai honestly, this was unintentional :)
Noticed it while playing, liked it, and decided to remain it as it is :)

I disagree about the simple graphics, it was a good choice. But adding a bit more of animation when "popping" stuff would be nice. Anyway, it was actually really sweet! Harder than I thought it would be. good work.

Easy and clear mechanism, addictive graph and music. Nice job! Could be a good casual game on mobile.

Got bored of it after a while. The upgrades barely increased fun in gameplay, and became too expensive too fast.
My highest score was 52 dots, in 60.2 seconds. :3
Good game though.

Very addictive and soothing at the same time. You should include a Upgrade option at the Game Over screen. I missed from the Title Screen. Tweak a little bit the upgrades and launch on mobile. :)

great music and mood. Couldn't get past that one barrage around 50 seconds in. Also couldn't figure out how to use the pop(?)

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.
