Really cool game and original mechanics!
- You have 60 seconds to collect as many stars as you can
- Dash by holding arrow keys and pressing Z
- Your dash recharges after 2 bounces
- Press control+r to restart
- Awesome ball-bouncing gameplay
- No randomness; compete to be the best
- A full-sized game in just 552 bytes!
- As much juice as can be crammed in such a small space
- Challenge - can you beat my own high score of 33?

this is excellent! the star spawn pattern is really neat, strategy-wise. after many attempts, my PB is now 45!
45!? That's incredible!! I'd love to see a video if you wanna go for that again~
thanks! I’ve been playing this for the past hour or so trying to get a better score – its really fun!
I’ve finally figured out a trick for the second half; basically you dash towards the ground, and then a few bounces later your dash is recharged and you’re high enough to get the top stars
I bet it’d be possible to make a TAS that gets ~100 stars
oh I also snagged this screenshot (not edited!)
it’s also not a legit score! it’s just a funny result of the screenshake and the cls code ;)
I think my actual score here was 40, and had just barely ticked up from 39
That's so cool, you make it look so easy! And yet there's still clear room for improvement.
That's a real funny glitch, and how those two numbers perfectly align visually to form a bigger one.
like this, score 11 from the first play
I love this! It's very cool :)
I got a better score again! This time I do have a screenshot.
Also just to make this clear I haven't been playing this whole time.
great job, love visuals and camera work 🤘
wow wtf one minute? you are cracked XD
I got 35... I forgot to get a screenshot though :(
really great game!
my highest is 21
Thanks for submitting this game to the ‘One Minute Jam’! I’ve posted feedback on the jam submission page.
Impressive code optimization! :O :)
Did you use special tools to "compress" math and code like this?
Nope, I did it by hand. I do a lot of tweetcarts so I'm familiar with different tricks, and I borrowed the collision from another game I'm working on so I was treading familiar ground.
i love it
