- Release the click to through you.
- A little arrow should appear indicating the direction that will travel.

Funny art! But gameplay is really hard. In my computer all goes really fast and it's imposible survive half a second on the floor :(

I really like the art style. Prepare to cling from the ceiling a lot :)

Nice cute artstyle, although the monster sprite doesn't seem to match the rest of the game. Something to improve for next time? Good Job :)

Srs biznes difficulty on a trackpad. I think the game has an enemy dearth in certain spaces at certain times because all of the astronauts start facing one direction, or so it seems. I may be wrong on that front. Good graphics, if a bit disjointed. Good job!

Fun game, SUPER difficult. Some level design would have been nice, or perhaps a longer timer. I actually enjoyed the insane speed at which you are able to jump around, it made the game feel challenging but possible. The sprites were incredible, props to the artist! The movement controls were surprisingly similar to our game. Overall nice job, I would love to see more done with this!

Good graphics and style, I liked the idea of being jumping walls but were hard for me to avoid the pink little bastards :P

Won fairly quickly once I'd figured it out. Art style was good, but a more accurate physics engine would be good.

I think it would have been easier and maybe a bit more natural to be able to click and drag anywhere on the screen. It would have made possible to quickly escape some dangerous situation. Also I was a little disappointed by the absence of physics. It would have been awesome to lob over the pink guys. Maybe there are too many of them as well.

But I love the idea and the game is fun to play, even if it's really hard. Well done !

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
