This is a great game! I don't really think it fits the theme, but this year there's no "adherence to the theme" category, so it won't be reflected in my rating.

Hope you consider expanding this into a full game.

I love it! Very fun to play, and clever map design! Also nice presentation.

Submitted

I applaud you! This game is beautifully done!

the train catching up to you reminds me a lot of the ghost mechanic in Fidel's Dungeon Rescue. Very cool way to encourage speed!

This is great. Love the combination of speed and strategy. Even if it was turn-based I don't think I could  beat level 10!

very fun, really clever and original idea that fits the theme very well. Only thing missing is some pumping music :)

Submitted

Simply awesome. More?

Super fun and original. Also really polished for just two days!

This was a very fun game to play, I really liked everything, the music, the sound effects, the levels... Well done!.

Now this was some seriously good fun! Connecting the tracks feels more like a spin on the classic pipe connecting puzzle games than something truly original, but the new spin is that the trains start moving right away. At first the challenge is just trying to figure out how to connect the tracks without crashing the train, but once you ramp up the speed the game completely changes from a timed puzzle game to a rapid fire four key fillet! That's quite the contrast, but a nice one for a seemingly simple game. Well done!

This is the best spin on connect the dots I've seen. Great difficulty options. If you were to develop it further and release it on mobile, I'd buy it.

Great stuff as always. You do really good work in pico8!

Very fun and responsive. I like puzzle games where  you have to think on your feet. Well done!

Felt really good to play. Loved the concept and the execution. Was a fun take on the crack style puzzle where you can only step on each space once

Love the machanics, fit perfectly with the theme. Great job!

Very good
