You're the cleaner inside giant mainframe. Find perfokaarts and place them into CPU to activate mainframe. But be carefull! Activated mainframe is dangerous!

Now only 3 levels avaliable...

Arrays - move
Z - jump
Hold DOWN while move to clean (needed to make lighters more bright)
Hold DOWN while jumping to attack with brush (useful against enemies, lighters and floppy)
Hold UP while jumping to hang on grid (if grid is visible)

Left Stick + A/X;

Grid is visible only on light.
Floppy opens doors.
You can smash big lighters fore preventing harm at future...

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! the game is very dark, but the light effect on the chara helps. Simple mechanics that still offered a decent amount of challenge.We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description. (you can already find several games from the jam there)

Grids mechanic is really cool, although at first I didn't understood what "grid" is, because they are pretty unnoticeable on the background.
Levels (at least in the first minutes) were a little too claustrophobic for a platformer (it's kinda upsetting when you can and want to jump but there is a ceiling in a few pixels above you).

Overall, a good game, but can't push myself to complete it, mostly because I have no feeling of satisfaction or reward for progressing.
To my taste, your games would benefit from being more compressed, with denser concentration of unique situations and experiences (or maybe I'm just not fan of platforming). Only opinion.

Just completed the game)
Very nice entry! Simple mechanics, but interesting gameplay!
Want to see full version in future!

Hard to understand mechanics with light and clean dust.
Some of puzzles simple to broke...without feature to restart one room. If you kill ane firefly or broke few lamps some levels becomes completely uncompletable... and only way to complet it is...suicide... if u don't destroy all enemies))

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. Many solo participants 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.
