I definitely didn't realize what I was supposed to do the first time. This game has a good pacing to it. After a little practice, I made it solidly into the top 10! The leaderboard is a nice touch.
I did run into a weird bug -- it looks like if you turn directions too quickly next to the wall, you can get stuck for a bit. Definitely lost some lives due to that. Overall, nice entry into the jam :)
