Twelve Puzzles

Will you be able to conquer the puzzles?

Shoot the red square!

Funny story: Since this was my first Dare, I kinda thought it was done after one day @_@ especially when the timer went from 24-0 then restarted. I thought the restart was for submitting. I didnt know it accounted for the next day. XD why have a day timer if you only use, at most, the hour timer. Idk, so, this coulda been a lot better. xD so, basically, i did this in a day, i rushed the end. Now, it only has 6 levels and the high-score system doesn't work. I might stream me actually finishing this game to see how far i could've actually gotten with it. We'll see.
That being said, its fun and my friends enjoyed it so you should too...for the first 6 levels.

Game created in Construct 2
All sounds made by me using Audacity...and my mouth

Neat game. I am little confused why the game seems to automatically reset after a set period of time... I tried several times and never had enough time to get past the 4th level. Would have liked to play more levels. Great sounds!

Really didn't like the timer, would rather compete for times rather than have a hard lockoff that stops me from seeing the rest of the content!

it may be because i am using a touchpad on my laptop, but the time was far to little. i liked the game but only played a portion of it. change the scoring so that it counts up is my recommendation also remember you developed the game and through lengthy play-testing you will be good at it, others may not get the chance to learn if it is too difficult.

Game was a lot of fun, although I had a hard time getting past the 4th level.

Lol - nice sound effects ;)

I couldn't make it past level 2 though :'( couldn't get the rebound right and ended up hitting myself all the time. Am I doing something wrong? Please let me know what the trick if (@wilbefast on twitter).

Fun, simple. Nice little puzzles. I wish the timer had more warning (or was replaced by a limited number of shots or something).

It was fun to play, but the timer made it difficult to enjoy it! I feel like it locks you out from the later levels. I think I maybe beat the game? After a certain level the word "YOU" appears on the screen and then the game resets. Not entirely sure what that meant. But still, good job! It was satisfying to hit the target with with trick shots.

It froze as I completed the first level with teleporters.

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.
