It's a fun game, quite hard. It could really use some better graphics. The planes look good, but they need more animation and I didn't understand that the water was water at first.

If only you had added a scrolling background. This would have enhanced it so much more.

Please change the name of the link from "Web" to "Windows". This is confusing.

Controls were somewhat limiting and at times confusing. Making horizontal and vertical movement independent from each other would have been nice, and also allowed diagonal movement. As it was, holding down right, then also holding down up and subsequently releasing up while right is still held did not result in intuitive behavior. I first traveled right, then up (since the up key overrode the right key), and then continued going up even after letting up on the up key, but still holding right.

Given the instant loss penalty for missing a plane, and missiles that go down/right, my strategy was to always head straight for the top left of the screen, firing guns and missiles simultaneously as fast as possible. Given the speed of my plane, the location of the enemy planes, and the timing of enemy bullets, I would often either get hit by a bullet on the way up, or not get up there in time to stop the highest enemy plane. Basically, there were plenty of opening game states that I felt I simply could not ever survive, making it feel unfair.

I blasted on the keyboard to reach the end but the boss seems really unbeatable.I mean maybe it's a bug or maybe it makes make the game endless. Hard indeed.

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.
