Nice game. I like the simplistic art!

My score: 51

Good idea and execution! The game becomes hypnotic after a while :P

My only nitpick would be to use more comfortable controls like something WASD/arrows-based. Also this game screams for a chiptune synced with the shape sounds (a-la-Super Hexagon), but I reckon it would have been required quite some work.

It is kinda fun, but becomes a little repetitive. :)

Fits the theme perfectly and is really addictive

Good game for rainy evenings. After a while it becomes rather easy but still very addictive. Gj! :P

Would've been a great rhythm game, but 48 hours aren't much, I know! Still very enjoyable, thanks.

Really nice, innovative take on the theme. This is the game I wish I'd thought of!

GG, nice work simple, clean and fun.
With usefull animations.
Maybe 1,2,3,4 is not the best keyboard layout for quick play.

Nice and simple, good job!

Lots of fun! I giggled each time I got to the fast parts and tried to keep up. Well done!

Cool little game for your first Ludum Dare. Although it's simple it fit the theme well. I felt like you ramped up the difficulty at a good pace, allowing me to get my bearings with the controls at first, but slowly I get to the point that I can't keep up.

And thanks for watching me make my game on twitch!

Heh, it's fun to see the same idea executed by someone else! Well done :)

Minimalistic but very striking. I feel like cycling through shapes rather than selecting them directly would have been a bit more manageable; keeping four button actions straight is surprisingly tricky! XD

This game's great, really funny and addictive, music along the gameplay would do great. Well done!

Simple and quick to pick up, but it gets pretty difficult with 4 shapes to keep track of, coming fast and furious! It definitely feels like it needs some sort of thumping music to go with it, especially if the gameplay could match the rhythm.

It's a nice game. My best score is 63.

Very nice game, the effect of the shapes closing in is very pleasing. I find it too bad there is no way to resize the window, the bottom of the game was cut off because of it. Very tight arcade game, my highscore was 52.

very nice entry for a first LD!
with a music that matches the beat of the level it could be even better.

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 ( 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.
