How does your game fit the theme?
The rules for how to beat the game are randomly selected each time, so it is out of the developer's control. There is also an "Out of Control" game mode with an additional element, but how that mode fits the theme is a bit of a spoiler.

Tried the Game Jam version. Seems like some instructions will help, but the lack of instructions definitely contribute to the theme!

I really like the idea, but i just couldn`t find any way to make points. Played for like 10 minutes an just got frustrated at the end. You wrote thet you used pre existing audio, but i didn`t had any audio in the game.

Yeah, I didn’t have time to add sound effects. The options were used existing audio or did your own audio, so it didn’t feel right to group this with games where people actually did do their own audio.

I had a bunch of way-too-long time setbacks, so its a lot less than what I had intended to submit. If anyone is curious after rating what I had been going for, the post jam version has buttons to select the other game modes. I had intended to add a GUI for selecting the game mode on launch. The Game Jam version is running on the game mode called “Out of Control”.

I don’t want to spoil the game for anyone checking out the comments before downloading, but here’s a link to a tweet with the explanation of how that mode works.
