Catchy tunes!

Enjoyed the game flow but it got a bit repetitive after a while. Also the WebGL frame is a bit borked but thats not really your fault :P

I really liked the aesthetic, and would love to see more of it. Good job!

Really fun! It has reminds me of Guitar Hero, with a twist. It has nice progression in difficulty, and the controls are clean. Great work! :)

Great game and concept, but very unfair at high levels. I've because appeared objects at both side and I was too slow (not me, but the object) to reach the other side.

I will let it faster(the player) ty for feedback xD

I can't tell whether it was meant to be like this or it's a bug, but when i press left or right arrow 2 times, it moves.
Great game anyway.

I think it was a mistake to have the arrow keys also move the catcher along with A+D. Killed me many times.

Its awesome, I liked so much the music and art.

It was fun, but the arrows underneath the shapes made it easier. Perhaps you could add a hard mode that removed the arrows. And some menu music would be cool too.
To fix the odd webGL frame, resize the ludum dare game window in page options.

Nice concept! Music and graphics are nice too! It could maybe be a rhythm game? Just an idea... Anyways great work!

Pretty fun submission. Idea was cool and audio was fantastic. I'm really think you could have majorly kicked it up in a notch with a cool looking background and some small camera shake and just more input feedback in general. Anyways, nice game!

Love the neon-styled graphics and the overall concept, but it starts to feel repetitive after a while, though it DOES get challenging.

Controls are pretty responsive and fast! :) Good choice for a soundtrack too, really sticks in your ear after some time, it made me feel like playing an old demo. :P

Cheers! :)

Pretty looking and great music! I feel like I've played 20 games like this so far in the jam so it's a little bit tiresome, but this is one of the better implemented of these types of games I've seen though so points for that!

Loved the music and the awesome glowey but simple art direction. It's just a fun game, simple as that. I would loooove to see an internet or even just a local high score board though! It sure would bump up the replayability. Great game though!

Good simple game, I feel like it would make a good mobile game if you could figure out controls for it

Great entry! I loved the aesthetics of the shapes. At first I thought it was really simple, but then when it started to speed up, it was suuuper fun! I was impressed. The music was super fitting as well. Great job! :)

Nice game, i like the idea and i don't know why but it can be a very good rythmik's game. The music is very good and you can develop it.

Really great music, and a good difficulty curve. It was fun for a couple of plays, but expectantly got a bit stale after that. Good job!

May 7, 2016 @ 1:21am

The audio and visuals are really nice! The game itself feels simple, but really enjoyable. I could see you going further with this on a mobile platform.

Control was a bit confussing (ingame instructions would be nice), with double arrow shifting and moving. The game is nice, good job!

Pretty addictive and nice take on the theme.
Making the gameplay fit better to the music would be nice, although after having done audio games in jams before I know this is hard.
The music is very well done, and the game plays pretty well.
I noticed my controller vibrating but couldn't figure out the controls for changing shape on the controller.
Would be really nice to have some sort of competition, either online highscores or local multiplayer would be really cool.

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.
