Tightrope Theatre is my Ludum Dare 31 entry created in under 48 hours. Theme: Entire Game on One Screen. Check out the game's Ludum page here:

Welcome to the Tightrope Theatre! it's showtime and you are the main star, so hop on a unicycle and start performing! Watch out though: The unicycle is hard to control, and the stage keeps getting more and more various traps, err, props, the further in act you get! Tightrope Theatre is not responsible for death or dismemberment.

This game wasn't as challenging as most of your other titles. But it was still very enjoyable to play through.

For a Game Jam submission, this is good stuff. It's really cool that even in under 48 hours of working you can still come up with decent ideas for games.
