Fix It

by Cawrtz - Jam Entry

==== FIX IT ====

What could the backstage of a platformer look like?
This game provides an answer!
Probably not the one you expect though.
You'll need to fix these broken levels if you want to get to the exit!

Great game! It is very fun and addictive. I love the whole idea of the backstage area. And how you have to trigger certain events to be able to get to the end. Kudos!

P.S. We didn't have sound in our game either.

Good looking pixel art and animation.

I like how when you enter a Door you go just behind the wall it allows the player to create a 3d image of the layout.

Jumping around a activating gears was fun!

Fun game. The fall distance before death is a little long. Really enjoyed the backstage/on-stage concept.

Very high level sound effects. I really loved the art for this game! I wish it had a bit more sound, but the graphics looks great and the animations are nice :)

Quite a basic puzzle platformer with some nice humor as a spice. Chuckled at the little bits and pieces that broke the fourth wall. The idea of a backstage is good and makes the puzzling a little more interesting, I even think you should have used it a bit more. Right now the puzzles are a bit linear and not as interesting as they could be. Nice job guys!

Finished the game, that was nice, if a bit silent.
The missions involved a lot of backtracking which was a bit annoying but I guess that comes with the general concept of 2-sided levels..

The comments were funny, and added to the feel of the game, good job!

The idea of goin backstage at a plaformer is genius :D The platforming is solid and the graphics look fantastic. Sound would have been nice, but you covered that with humor instead ;) The puzzles are fun as well. I think the hitbox for the level exits could be a bit bigger, but that is about the only improvement I could think of. Well done, lads!

I really enjoyed this and ended up playing it for ages! I felt really silly I couldn't get past the bit where I needed a lamp - but I just really suck and jumping around walls and stuff.

It reminded me of an old Neopets puzzle game (in a good way) - and funny too :)

The sound effects are brilliant! xD
I love these neat pixel-art assets and the game story as well.
But the gameplay is a bit boring for me, but maybe it's because I'm not a big fan of platformers in general.
Good work!

Nice jokes. The level design was a bit unclear for me, I jumped back and forth trying to figure out where to go next

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.
