Very sweet music, cool sprite that I can relate to (he looks just like me!), okay game :)

Great music and concept! Reminds me of Lava Tile Isle from Mario Party!

Nice game. The man's sweet.
I found some of the colours, especially blues and greys, are a bit too similar, so it's hard to tell which is which as the board gets further away.
I also think it would be more fun if you had to do something else during the waiting time - like collect coins - or if it was a bit faster.

Nice concept, music and colors.

The game is perhaps to easy or lack of different game mechanics (time get shorter, color patterns to follow or complete, etc.). Good base game that has room to grow :)

Nice little game. I think it would be more fun if you make it more challenging.

Interesting idea that could have been taken further. I found that I had a lot of difficulty discerning the two different shades of blue.

Oooh, how charming.
Fun game. Had some problems sometimes discerning the right color. Perhaps differentiate the blocks more. Showing the block against a light brown background also changes the perception of the color shown.

I enjoyed the concept! The music was very nice and relaxing. I also liked the idea of adding more tiles as you progress. I feel like you could have went one step forward by introducing more rare tiles that would require longer searching or a more restrictive time limit. Overall, I thought it was very good.

Cool game. Find it a little bit to easy though.

Cute game. I kinda wanted the squares to keep getting smaller and smaller until they were 1px by 1px or something and the game became impossible. :)

I really liked the music, well done.

Cool concept.

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.
