Score as many points as you can in 60 seconds by tracing over the doodles with your mouse - that's all there is to it!

    Fun little game. After my first play I thought it was just checking how much I had covered, so on my second attempt I scribbled over everything and just go an 'ok', damn, my epic idea was thwarted.

    Also realised you need to do the little parts first and then the big parts, otherwise when you lift the mouse to move to a non-connected part, it submits the drawing (I guess it's done on a percentage covered to count as a submit?). Not an issue, just a strat to learn to become the best scribbler >:)!

    I did have one drawing start with a line already drawn from the top left to the middle. I guess I still had the mouse down or something when it changed over? Not sure.

    Chill music too, good job!

      Haha yes it's checking a grid for whether it matches the covered/uncovered state of a square, so no block-filling the screen :P

      Yeah it submits if there's already a high % match (to stop the player having to wait around).

      Yeah one thing I missed which happens quite often apparently is that line drawing! It does happen if the mouse is still held just as the drawing changes over. Something I'd fix given the time :)

    Insanely addicting. I noticed that when I broke out my drawing tablet the drawing seemed to start a few frames, though I'm not sure if that's the tablet or the game.

    I think it needs fullscreen. Other than that, the "nice" and "messy" comments were nice. Well done, and nice polish!

    Had a looot of fun with this game! Think the mechanic was so fun. Played it a couple of times to try get a better score! So I think the high score board was a great choice for this style of game :D Noticed a couple of times I wasn't done with the drawing but it was registered as done. But not a big deal. Oh my gosh that hamburger drawing was hard though. Loved the tone and vibe of it overall. The comments after each drawing done like the "Nice" and "Perfect" were also super nice touches and it tied things together nicely. Nicely polished and defnitely incited some competition for me.

    Very fun game. It has a really great style and presentation. I couldn't quite figure out what constituted a perfect rating and a nice rating though. Sometimes my doodles looked a mess and theyd be perfect. Other times they'd be much closer to the lines but be marked nice. I'm guessing its a combination of accuracy and time taken but I wasn't certain.

    It would also be nice if the window was a bit larger as I found on some images the clock seemed to overlap the image I was drawing. It didn't really hinder me but it didn't look great either. Would've just been nice to have a little extra room so that didn't happen.

    Overall though it was fun to play and a good entry into the game jam.

    A very nice concept, and executed well too. The drawing gameplay is simple and quite enjoyable. The drawing detection system is very impressive too! I had to implement something similar for my game, but yours seems a bit more sophisticated than mine.

    There are a couple of nitpicks: The game window seems a bit too small, espescially with how the clock covers a sizeable chunk of the drawing. It's also a bit ambiguous when the game will accept the drawing. Sometimes a vague shape will submit with "close enough", other times it feels like you have to be perfect just to move on.

    Regardless, the presentation here is very slick. The simple touches such as the countdown timer add a lot to the game. The music is really nice and the sounds effects all work well. The overall package feels very polished.

    Very fun game. I included it in my GM48: Sixty Seconds compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/KFZGXZMxHA8

    Good game, dont have a lot to say here since it does what it says on the tin.

    Only things I'd like too see is a check to avoid repeating the same drawing back to back, I had the GM logo appear far more frequently than anything else. something like Gm Logo > gm Logo > other drawing > gm logo > gm logo which made that attempt a bit less intresting.

    Oh and a small bug that draws a line across when switching images, I think its when im still drawing but the game marks it as complete (sometimes even perfect) even though Im not finished, ie the 4 shapes (1 per corner) ill do three, place my mouse on shape 4 but then itll switch image and leave a line. Its no major hassle and as far I can tell it has no major implications on the game or your score so dont let it take away from an otherwise mostly postive feedback!

    Fun little game! I would have liked to have been able to put this in fullscreen though. It might also be good to make the clock transparent if the cursor is touching it, as the clock cut off the corners of some drawings. The game itself is very good though. It reminds me of a minigame from Mario Party DS.

    Very good game, though sometimes when a new picture would show up, it would transfer over a really long line from the previous picture (or maybe it just wouldn't stop drawing for a second or something), and that messed up some pictures. Other than that, really well done!

      Yeah it's where if you don't let go of the mouse button it just continues drawing a line - something I need to fix... but luckily it doesn't actually affect your score! The drawing of the line on the surface and the back-end check in the code for how closely your picture matches are two separate things.

    Enjoyable, and made more so by the highscores reminding me how wobbly my mouse control is 😅 Well presented, good music, just an all around excellent lil entry.

    Some of the drawings can go away forever, though. That six pronged flower never gave me more than an "Okay" and while I could reliably attain a "Perfect" on the burger, it took ages to fill in xD

    This is very well put together and has a lot of polish. The mouse does sometimes seem to reset the co-ordinates when it moves to a new picture which did leave a big line across one of the traces, but it was only a minor thing, it's really nicely done and with a great style and music - I'd love to know what online score system you'd used (or if you made your own) - great entry! :)

      Thanks, I made my own highscore table from scratch - something I've wanted to do for a while and it turns out it's not as hard as I thought it would be! :)

    Very polished. Music, art, sounds, gameplay all felt cohesive. One minor thing is that the timer sometimes obscured part of the shape being drawn.
