Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

In One Fell Swoop

by Patomkin - Jam Entry

It's like a billiard, but with janitors and trash. That's all you need to know.


Oh, ok, maybe this one you need to know too:
Left Mouse Button and Right Mouse Button
M - Mute
ESC - Exit

Lovely game, I really enjoyed it. Feels very polished and complete. I didn't finish it though. Anyway it's a keeper, maybe later I'll challenge it again.

Very minor nitpick: When you run out of moves it would be better to fail the game immediately instead of letting the player try another turn that never happens.

Very nice, very completed. Very smooth movement. Very! :)))

How many levels do you have in this game? I was surprised when I see more and more content.

Fun and innovative gameplay idea.
Feels very polished with the tutorial.

Looks very polished, I really enjoyed my time playing it!

I loved it! my only complaint is that I'd like to skip the dialog, but that's nit picking

I'll admit I actually found this to be very relaxing, well except for the timed levels wich always stress me out in any games lol.
As a segue I find it interesting that you effectively got 2 different games going on: the frantic timed missions and the slow,methodic move limited missions (plus the missions with both elemetns).

All things said it's pretty cool and the graphics are really neat and clean (pun unfortunately intended).

Excellent entry, really unique, quite polished, simple and fun mechanich. Easy to understand and hard to master.
I'll suggest only a next dialog button or a skip button.
I also really liked the aestetic.
Nice Job!

oh! Nice! Can I find it on indiexpo? I'm making videos about the games of this Jam, but only about the games hosted also on indiexpo! Tell me if you will add it, so I can include it in my next video ;)

Really neat game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Cool idea with the bouncing off walls - I just didn't get when you bounce of and when you don't because the line always indicates you will.

Really, good work!

This is the most fun experience I've ever had cleaning a room :D ! The game is great, it's fun and draws you in instantly, the graphics are cute, so are the dialogue sounds! The music sets the vibe perfectly which makes the experience even more fun! It deserves a 5/5 in all categories for sure, keep up the great work!

Awesome! I loved it all except the ability to lose your progress, sending you back to the beginning seems a little harsh and it's rather disappointing as I was hoping to complete it. But that's a very minor complaint! Thoroughly enjoyed playing it and it was all around really solid, consistent simple graphics and straightforward mechanics.

Loved this entry. Would like to see this developed into a full game or app, simple but the gameplay felt great and addictive and had a great humour to it. Great entry!

Super fun little game.
The idea is simple but the excution brilliant, you've put the right amount of feedback and I like the little details like the boundaries bouncing, the cute SFX.
Super polished, great work!
