Maybe you could add a theme to this one when the jam starts to prevent people starting early.

Defend yourself with various weapons, bombs, upgrades and through jumping on your enemies heads. Killing enemies earns you money to buy new guns, bombs and upgrades from the shop.

This was made for Minimalistic Jam 2.
Any feedback would be well appreciated. Thanks.
Love the ending and music.
There doesn't seem to be much reason to avoid being seen other than the music changing. I'd make the player slow down while holding 'Z' to give more reason not to play through the game with the button held too.
Very cool puzzle game. An original and seemingly risky idea too but it works. The only negative I can think of is that I'm not 100% sure on some of the AI patterns but that's probably due to my lacking in intelligence and patience.
Looks good and plays smoothly. Things build up the more you collect, nice little idea.
I'd like to see some more 'juice' though, a little extra effect for collecting items or dying and something that really makes it feel like you're at the beach.
Also the arrow keys cause the screen to scroll on my laptop(both in the browser and downloaded versions, it's especially bad in my browser), you should add WASD controls.
I feel like more could be done more with this idea. Clean up the visuals a bit, maybe give the player the option of zooming in or out, have the amount of enemies build as your score rises. I also feel like it's too easy to die yet too easy to exploit. Also if any part of the players body touches a wall or ceiling you can jump eternally.
Needs more juice. I suggest things like sound effects for attacking or killing enemies, maybe some kind of explosion effect for enemies dying. It does have nice clean menus and is easy to control. In the future I'd recommend having screenshots or some kind of preview on the game page.
