I really liked that experience. Graphics were great, game was fun, mood was awesome.

This game was slightly confusing so I just ended up picking up floating tiles and shooting at things. I liked how the levels changed though, but it felt a bit that there was no meaning behind in the game. The music fits well on this one. Overall it's a fun little game.

I must say, this is the second game I play this Ludum Dare, but... oh my god, i can't believe I will find I game i like more.

The idea is super interesting and fun, it is very colorfull, has shooting and great music, it has mistery as you don't know what will the next color do and even a level of mastery as you come to learn the zones...

I will be back later, to play some more. Heck I am gonna play again when I finish commenting it.

Very innovative and fun to play game! At the begining I didn't know, why I should change colors, but after a while I realized that this is useful. Overal, good work!

Great idea and has a look to grab the eye as well! Learning the levels really gives the player something to strive for when they can alter it to suit their needs. I felt a bit cheated that I take a hit even when landing on enemies, but perhaps I just need to get better ;)

Cool! Took me a few tries to figure out a strategy, but it ended up being a lot of fun. Liked the CRT-y blur effect - livened up the graphics nicely.

I really liked the looks of this game, though the enemies were pretty brutal (I'm not the best at these action platform types) I did enjoy the gameplay, especially using the floating symbols as a goal, because each brought with it a new transformation of the stage, very nice!

This is a highlight amongst the games I've played so far, for sure! Looks great, nice take on the theme, and a pretty good difficulty progression.

I was a little lost when I first got into the game, but after the first warp and enemy appeared it all made sense.

Very very nice! The retro aesthetic is spot on and the music, while a bit short and repetitive, is awesome! Controls are good too. I'd love to see this developed more :)

Very innovative gameplay, fun to play, good art direction and atmosphere, only thing I don't like is the music choice !

5*

Nice game! Enjoyed the level warping mechanic. Also, you can't really go wrong with Kevin MacLeod music! Good job.

Cool concept

The game plays but I cannot see any of the platforms to move on, only see the player and enemies. Whoops. The screen shots look great and most people seem to enjoy it, so I will assume I had fun playing this. Good work!

Interesting, the level changing was a good idea. I liked the colors although I don't think it changed the gameplay much.
I think the health tile should be more obvious and used a distinct sound. Also, changing the terrain can instantly spawn a spike on you and I don't think that's fair to the player.

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.
