A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

This is a game I made in a few hours for Ludum Dare 34.

The theme I chose was "two button controls"

What you have to do is move a paddle up or down and catch the bits that are flowing from right to left.

This is supposed to represent you downloading a file - if you miss one bit, the download fails and you've lost.

The bits you are "downloading" are actually a binary representation of the source code of the game.

This is not polished at all, and probably not fun, I just intended to explore the idea of using a game's own source code as a level.

If I ever feel like it, I might update this.

Install instructions

You need the LÖVE framework to run this except on Windows.
