How did you bring the theme of Time into your entry?
i made the game time attack!

What was the most interesting part about making the game?
the most interesting part of making this was that i limited myself to one specific palette of only 5 colours, and i did some experimentation with super weird timer criterias.

Anything else to add?
It may be a bit simple, but i hope you enjoy it just as much as i do!

This game looks really cool. I think it has a really memorable aesthetic which stands out among other games in the jam. 

I think the main improvement I would make is responsiveness. I had to restart the game whenever I wanted to try again, and since I only ever stayed alive for a few seconds at a time, it soon became tedious. 

Overall though, you've made a really neat looking game.

Mh! ill look into lowering players speed

I like the graphics. Unfortunately since the player moves so fast I was unable to get very far at all.

hahaha, to be fair i intended to have the player reach f-zero kinda speeds, so tbh i sorta meant for it to be like this. Even so, its a bit unfortunate you couldnt keep up. You can hit the opposite key to the current direction you're going to reduce speed, and use the sides of the screen to wrap if you need to! best of luck! In the future if i pick this back up, i might add different speeds, etc to make for a more long lasting game, but with three days, and only working two of those three i was a tad rushed for "time" XP

The game goes blank gray when I press a key
