I got 121 seconds on my first try, but I messed up a lot on the early levels. Very fun game!

Very nice puzzle game! It gets very tricky, very fast. I really like the concept and it's a very nice elegant execution with the layout and shuffling of the boards. Good job!

Hi I'm Will and I'm too dumb for this game :)

First handful of levels were awesome though, good work! I might come back to this later to try and teach myself not to be a scrub

I like puzzles ! But I'm so slow to solve it (238s, here).
Good job. :)

Great game! It recorded me at 318 second, though it took a while to load (I'm on crappy hotel wireless) so I had left the computer for a while and came back, so, for the sake of my ego, I must assume it was counting time before I actually started playing ;).

Really well done difficulty curve up. The board set up intro sequence looked polished.

178 seconds. The second puzzle stumped me for way longer than it should have. My poor brain.

172 seconds. When you solve a puzzle, there should be a brief look at the completed solution rather than just immediately switching to the next puzzle. For mouse controls for this sort of game, surrounding the board with arrow buttons on either end of every row and column works better than dragging. The controls you have would be great on mobile/tablet.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

Ogre, I know exactly what you're talking about :) I'm considering fixing up some things like that and polishing it.

Thanks everyone, keep posting scores :D

I don't like this kind of games because I am very bad at them (no patience), but if you like this kind of game it's perfect for this kind of game. Wait, let me try again! :)

Good job! It was a great concept, and not as difficult as implied!

Wow, nice one, pretty difficult, well done with the timer and difficulty. You are right, we did use somewhat similar mechanics :)

Apr 24, 2016 @ 9:40pm

The first level was definitely my difficulty level! I suck at puzzles ;).
Maybe some intermediate levels inbetween level 1 and 2 might be nice?
Some good mechanics though and solid interface for it. Well done!

I finished in 2 seconds, but only because I discovered what appears to be an unintentional debug key (or maybe it's a hidden easter egg?). :-)

Haha atomic pair, you found it. I meant to get rid of it :P It was so I could actually make screenshots of levels super quickly :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.
