Not 32-bit :<. I'll give you cookies if you build a 32 bit version

Pretty fun little game. it's really fun and I like the interpretation of the theme better than most, but it feels a bit simple. it needs another mechanic or gameplay element to keep it from getting repetitive.

Overall pretty fun game. Simple, neat mechanic. My only qualm with the UI is showing that the player uses energy

@Jellycakes : uploading 32 bit version soon, keep the cookies ready!
@DA_KID yes we did have one more gameplay element, but due to some last minute bug during build, we had to remove that.
@vairse the background tells you how much energy you have left, if the full background goes dark, you die.

Thank you everyone for your feedback. We are glad that you liked the game. Constructive criticism is welcome!
We will upload the ports to mac and 32bit version of the game soon.

Its not clear whether or not the music is original (which is great). I can't score it for audio without knowing that, but I'll score the rest.

At first, I didn't find energy meter too. And some songs seem to be easier than another ones. Maybe it worth to add other collectable items after player gets x4. It's pretty neat idea and nice realization. I like this game

Great music and really fun game. I wish there could have been more shapes. I'd love to see this evolve into an awesome game.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 4:13am

Like the idea behind it, has a original feel to it. Energy meter wasn't obvious for me either. It also felt like the lightning bolts stopped spawning. I would get a few, right at the beginning, but then no more would appear and I would eventually lose because of it.

avast! antivirus blocks this game...

Dec 23, 2014 @ 10:41am

@SumGato : its a unity game, but its obviously not a popular product on market, hence anti virus recognizes it as potential threat. But dont worry, it wont harm at all.

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.
