Here is my entry for the Game Jam - Swing! (yes, you have to shout it)
The gist is pretty simple - you swing around using a grappling hook and you must avoid dying. Don't touch the red blocks and don't get shot by a Turret (duh). Play through the Levels or enter the Arena and try to survive.
The way the game relates to the theme of Cash is.. uh.. you get to keep your cash because this game is free!

I think this should win. I have spent hours enjoying this game! Maybe we could collab on adding sprites, or polishing the game. Hmu! Otherwise it is an amazing game!
Splash text ideas:
"This text is green" (make it red though)
"Game Jam? More like lame jam"
Great game! I spent some time playing this, it's pretty fun. Also, lowering the grappling hook (I think it's the E key) stutters a bit. I also made a game but no one's looking at it (it's at https://repl.it/talk/challenge/Infinite-Runner-Thing/12625).
This is a great game, but I have one super important thing to point out...
You spelled artifact wrong in the about page.
it's so broken rn, the gravity messes up in the explosives level so that either you float or it's so strong that you can't physically pull yourself up, then the screen just went gray and i had to reload which reset my progress
woah this game is great but I'm really bad at it! how do you do the physics of it?
@AmeliaBlackwell Pretty simple. I give the ball a position, velocity, and acceleration. Each frame I add acceleration to velocity and I add velocity to position. To get the acceleration I add all the forces acting on the ball together, so gravity, left/right thrust, friction, air resistance, rope tension. All these properties are vectors, and I use the p5.Vector object to handle them conveniently. I can explain in more detail if you're interested.
