Rolling Surviver

by shanshuo2020 - Compo Entry

A ball is rolling ahead on a rotatable screen, try to help it to survive longer.
In the game, you can press Space Key to jump, and you can hold the key longer to jump higher.
Also, you can press "←" or "→" to change the angle of the screen to change the speed and some other attributes of the ball and the world.
If you died, press "R" to restart.

Keeping it simple but fun.

It is pretty hard :) You could make a mobile game with this mechanic!

Rotating screen is an interesting mechanic, but for me it's probably more disorienting than anything.

Nice little idea, surprisingly tricky. Could do with a lot more polish, the graphics are kinda basic and the ball glitched a few times and got stuck in walls. Lots of potential here though.

Very fun game, and an interesting mechanic. Could use some more attention on the looks, but the gameplay is solid.

Simple but fun was getting very frustrated with the large gaps I could not jump until i found out about the screen rotation and was very annoyed by the fire catching up

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.
