Nice relaxing puzzle game! I love the music, it's so soothing. Had a laugh at the layout of the final map :p

I love the art. I think you also did a great job of introducing the different mechanics in the first few levels.

This was awesome, I really liked the way it progressively explained the concepts. The music and graphics are great,

Wow this is a very professional-quality game. The way you introduce gameplay elements is quite intuitive. Excellent job!

I managed to get stuck on the first pink ghost level by turning off bridges either side of an island

Very cool. One of the best I've played so far. Love the audio touches when you get pickups. I really enjoy when a game makes the sfx sort of "in tune" with the background music.

Really enjoyed this simply and relaxing game. Nicely polished and didn't encounter any bugs.

Good effort.

really neat game. liked the mood, art and audio.
Camera movement is a bit clunky when i change the movement direction. At one point I pressed escape because I got stuck. Then i pressed escape again, thinking it would return to game, but it took me to the main menu. I gave up on that point.

Great job nonetheless, would love to see what you could do with this game with more time.

Really nice to see a game revisiting an old classic one like Pacman. I really liked it!

Seems like if you get hit by two pacmans at the same time you lose two lives? Also annoying when I would trap myself on an island :(

Despite those minor things, agree with others that it was a nice relaxing game which did a great job introducing things before they were actually threatening. Great job.

this game is definitely a "relaxing" type of game, nice job with the graphics they are quite nice and the music is smooth, too. Good job!

Nice idear and graphics.
Music is quite good too.

The game is nice and very polish but too repetitive.

Very coool. Got stuck on that island as well and there doesn't seem to be a way to respawn manually? Great game nonetheless, I really dig the level design.

Beautiful spin on the classic game.

So this is a compo entry and it's still so polished and had a good amount of content? Wow.

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.
