What a fun bit of weirdness. Loved the circus music. I like these physics-based games.

This is my favorite game I have played so far. I got to the boss but I couldn't really tell if I won or what the deal was. Very entertaining. Loved the circus music and the powerups.

Loved it! It reminded me of days of old, and expected to see an original Cycle from the 1800's with that music. ;)
I would change your " -" to "Spacebar" as I was pushing the hyphen key. Obviously, I figured it out. And Thanks for allowing me to do "windowed", as that works best for me.

Quirky, yet spectacular. The final boss thing kinda went fast though; I shot him with a laser and he died before I noticed what was really going on.

Best game so far. There was a sense of exploration, and it had it's surprises.

Hey, here's a tip for the boss. I realized it may not be clear enough how he works. When he spawns, he spawns with a giant 'R' key. The same key that restarts your game. The boss tries to restart your game. Shoot the 'R' to keep it away from the boss while you kill him.

This is awesome! Also, it would be cool if you'll add later blood and gore and stuff, really love this game!

Fun little concept and it felt really well implemented. Cool music too. O would have liked a bit more of a lose condition, but this rampage was fun enough to do anyway :)

I had far more fun than I should have, an would love to see where else this concept could be taken. Platforming with a wheel is actually a lot more interesting and fun than I would have expected. Great game with some cool features.

Fun little entry! It bugged out a little at the end with the boss fight, but I had fun running over the little people with my giant wall of death!

May I say that your coolness score is too low? I was hoping more people would love your game, as I quite enjoyed it. Congrats on how well you did on the other categories though. :D

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.
