So... What is this game about?

You play a little circle using your keyboard's arrow keys.
You're goal is to reach... The goal before time runs out.
BUT you can only reach a goal if you match its color... Good luck.

Where can I get it?

Cool game! The mechanism is clear and easy to understand, however I think I won't be the only one that tried a lot before realizing arrow is "changing direction of circle" rather than "moving the circle itself". That makes my operation feels weird at the beginning. Also, I am not sure how the "G" works in this game.

The music is cool, I really enjoy it!

Great music and what a SPEEEEEEEED game.
Like the concept, pretty hard to win but really fun to play.

I noticed that the time keep on decreasing after the game over (negative time displaying while on game over screen)

Good job !

Simple and enjoyable game. Would love to see the main game stylized like the menu screen is. The music is great too, good job!

Good game! It took me some to find out how the game mechanism works, everything just happens so fast at the beginning. But really enjoyable once you get into it.
Thank you for the Linux build.

Very confusing at first, but then I noticed I had to pick the object with the same color, and that they actually changed to the color of the blocks they touched, great fun after finding that out :D

Pretty fun = D I love the idea and how accurate you need to be after a few levels. I found this challenging and really enjoyable. Good job = D

awesome game! very engaging fast-paced action together with great music.
it is a bit confusing at first, and i only understood the mechanics at the second try, but that can be solved with better instructions, its not a problem of the game itself :b
great work :-)

Hi, I'm sorry about the broken link... It's all fixed now. (Blame it on my mad web development skills).

And thanks for all those wonderful comments, I really appreciate them. Well... To be honest it's less the comment and more the fact that you guys had fun that I appreciate.

Keep having fun!

This was really fun!
Simple but fun concept, well executed. Great music too.
Only thing that bugged me was the movement, would have liked some smoother control over my ball, not only the 4 directionals.
Anyway, great job!

Great game! It becomes kind of challenging in later levels.

Liked the game a lot! The concept is really good and music is awesome.

Sometimes I felt that colliding with the edges felt a little wonky, and the speed of the player was maybe too great? Even the secret Q didn't make it easier to control ;)

Really great music and game play. Really really nice work. It was quite enjoyable.

That's very fun and addictive! Minor thing: you can get stop at a wall while pushing the button in its direction. Not really a problem but if you want to polish the game a bit for a post-compo version... anyway, nice job!

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.
