One of the best "the controls keep changing" games I've plaid in this jam! Well done!

Developer(+1)

Thanks, loved your game!

Submitted(+1)

Creative and fun, loved it, polish it a bit more and would be more awesome

Submitted(+1)

That was really fun! I liked how you had to tap the buttons at different speeds depending on how fast the plate was already spinning. If you added better graphics and maybe a cute cartoony character juggling all the plates this game would become awesome!

Nice game, hard to bounce the plant at the right moment with the bomb (assuming I was suppose to bounce over the bomb). Congrats on completing a game :)

Submitted(+1)

Into made me think of "Show me what you got"

Developer

that was indeed the inspiration :)

Submitted(+1)

Interesting concept, not a lot of feedback that a plate is properly spinning.   The controls were definitely challenging, but I felt it worked well.   Hard to tell what the scoring system was looking for, I had scores literally 10's of thousands apart and it was all mediocre.

Developer

it's 1 point per 1/100th of a second per plate so the score ramps up with more plates

get the "good" end by scoring over 15,000

Submitted

Interesting, but the plates keep falling after a few seconds even though I'm pressing the key to spin them. I'm trying not to spin them to quickly, but I can't tell if they are spinning too slow or too fast.

Developer

if they turn red that means it's too fast

Really love the game idea! Great work

This is like twister but for my hands! Love it!!! :)

Submitted(+1)

That was fun, good job on this, definitely a unique game! 

Submitted(+1)

Haha super cool reflex game.  It was fun trying to keep the plates going, and it was a cool mechanic how the button would switch suddenly. Congrats on submitting a unique game to the jam, please check out my game if you haven't :D

7390 points. I didn't know what to do when the bomb came down!

One of the more fun takes on this idea for sure.

Developer

Nice! When the bombs fall on your plates you need to bounce them off by holding down the key.

Submitted(+1)

I think this could have been more fun with visuals that communicated what was happening. I could not tell the 'speed' of the plates rotating or if I was playing well or not. Good idea, and great job!

It took me a while to get use to controls, but then it was real fun :)

Submitted(+2)

Interesting idea, it gets out of control very fast ahahah.

Submitted(+2)

This is super difficult! Very creative, I liked it.

Submitted(+2)

this is one of the original fun game to play.

Submitted(+2)

Nice! The game will look even better if you guys had more time! Keep it coming!

Submitted(+2)

That's a pretty cool game! pretty challenging too, i only managed to score 500 points please keep working on it even after the jam, i think that it has a lot of potential, good job! Please check out my game too :D

Developer(+1)

Thanks for playing. 

If you want a tip: just tap the key on the screen once or twice a second until it flashes red then hold off for a second.

If you see a bomb or coin hold the key down for 2 seconds and release to jump.

Fun mechanic, the bombs dropping down was a fun lil' goof.

One thing I'd suggest is an easier way to distinguish the plate spinning too fast from spinning too slow because it can be kinda hard to figure out each plate's individual state.

Love the vibe though, good work finishing it!

Developer(+2)

 I agree that it's not super clear. I was thinking of putting a speed meter on the plates but that just adds clutter to the screen. Maybe another colour for too slow.

Submitted(+1)

Changing the colour is a good idea, maybe having a glow effect that slowly shrinks as it slows down.

Developer

I've added colour fading to indicate speed

Submitted(+2)

This is neat. Only the noise the robot made when speaking was rather annoying and made me just mute the game.
