GraviFlipby oh_andrej - Compo Entry
Your space station has been overrun by space bugs and out-of-control space bots! You'd totally be up to the challenge of kicking them out, but...well, you spent a bit too much money on Monolith Burgers so you could only afford an old, second-hand space suit that's so clunky, you can't jump in it. But luckily you're in space where gravity is a fickle thing, prone to change at the flick of a wrist!
Change the gravity and land on top of the enemies to destroy them. Land on several in a row without touching the ground (or ceiling, I guess) to start a combo and get more points! Rack up a high score and become the best space thingies destroyer space person! SPACE!
If you're having trouble with the space bots (the enemies that are affected by gravity) here's a tip: They are lighter than you and thus fall slower. Try flipping the gravity, then flipping it again while you are in midair; that should get you in a good position to stomp them! I know they are tricky, but I wanted the game to be hard to evoke the feeling of old arcade games ;)
Thanks to all of you taking the time to play my game!

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.
