This was originally for the compo, but oh well. Things happen. :)

Awesome music. The platforming mechanics seemed great and felt really good. My only gripe was that enemies would either fall right on top of me, or wouldn't fall where I wanted them to. Otherwise, I thought the dead enemies at platforms idea was very interesting.

it's a cool idea, but I feel like it moves a bit too slowly. I think this would be a lot more enjoyable if there were more chunks produced by each killed orange(?) so that progress feels a bit faster and each kill feels more significant.

Thanks for the advice NickMakesGames. I've added in something to move it along a bit faster. :)

Really dynamic.
Too bad I got stuck at every try :/ A bit buggy
But the idea is really nice! I think you're not in the theme though..
Fun to play, liked it overall :)

Yeah, sorry about the 'getting stuck' part. I did add in a temporary solution (Press S) while I try to fix it, but I can't for the life of me figure it out...

The gameplay is fun even if the challenge is very high. The music is cool and the graphics too. With the description and the title "Orange juice" I thought breaking the blocks go up juice or something like that. If the blocks made bigger platform or they left a few exploding in itself it might be simpler :P

That's interesting idea. I like that but maybe if it was liquid grape juice it would be better? And you know? Stomping grapes? Right?

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.
