Interesting. I did not expect that the game was about collecting things in a rave, but it turned out well.

Interesting idea, controls are a bit weird though, the camera doesn't allow me to see where I'm going very well, and sometimes I felt I was going in a direction I wasn't trying to go. Kinda confusing.

The shape of the crowd is dynamic and interesting, but is still possible to beat every time. Great job!

Nice game, I like graphics. Gameplay is a little hard to manage. It make me think in Pichulgor ;D

Chilling background music you got there.

It's sometimes really hard to tell where the hitboxes are. Sometimes when you bump into someone you immediately bump into someone else and lose all your lives. :( First time I used the mass-panic powerup got me killed. Ah, good times.
Also the blue powerups don't work anymore after creating a mass-panic, but that's no big deal.

At level 11 the time given is hardly enough to straight up run to the other side. But I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Very cool concept. Camera makes it a little hard to see what's going on, but I had fun with it.

Very cool idea and good execution in art style and sound/music. Needed a few tries to get going. Love pushing those suckers above the edge :D

Nice game. I like isometric approach. Overall experience is good.

I'm not sure why you left the humor category out, since I would have scored you high there. :P

This is quite a unique idea. I thought it was extremely unfair at first until I figured out how to pick up powerups. Still, a lot depends on where enemies and walls and powerups are generated. Making sure that no enemies generate near your player's starting position might help.

Also, the isometric angle made it very difficult to tell when I had room to walk or not, which is bad for a game that completely depends on avoiding collisions.

interesting idea! great graphics. the orange power is suicide

Thanks everyone. The power up orange can be useful at times. Hide in a wall and pray. :)

The animations and controls are incredibly realistic in a good way. It feels great and I feel like controlling an human being :) The collisions seems a bit inaccurate though I guess that's really insane to handle, plus that's not such a big deal, it's just a little bit hard sometimes. I tried your game because I liked the gif on your post, and I haven't been disappointed by orange bonus ^^

This is cool! Completely forgot about the powerups the first time and was a little underwhelmed as I remembered seeing a video (or gif) of it somewhere a few days ago and wondered why people weren't running around. But yeah, the comments reminded me you could press CTRL and the game suddenly became a pretty hilarious experience. :)
With there was no time limit though, I think it's difficult enough even without one.

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.
