Great game. Maybe a little bit too much random.

Well done! I liked the possibility to jump more than once. Good art too!

Excellent Game, i love the art, the capacity to crouch and to execute a double jump. Congrats :)

Very cool idea - I love that you could jump up the edges of the hourglass... I just wish it flipped over a bit quicker when you died. I loved the crunchy sounds too - really matched the aesthetics of the game.

Really nice game. A little bit hard (or am I too bad at it ?) but it sure is a great an original take on the theme. Like how you manage to give it life just by moving a few pixel. Nice overall.

Cute concept with nice artwork. Perhaps it could have used a bit more variety but it was fun nonetheless.

Cool game! The character reminds me a bit of captain video fro the BIT TRIP serie.

Nice game, hard, interesting, and fun to play over and over again! I featured it in my Ludum Dare 27 compilation video series, if youd like to check it out :)

Simple game, but I like it. I dig the aesthetics, and putting the level inside an hourglass is just cool. And amps up the difficulty nicely as you get closer to the bottom and the level gets narrower.

This is a beautiful game and I thought the art and audio was spot on and made me feel like I was playing a true old oooold game. I'd love to see an offline version uploaded, I could see myself playing this a lot.

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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
