It works for me, but the transition between every screen is very slow, a sign of lack of optimization.

It's the bane of such competitions: some good games reach the deadline with some adjustments still needed, and without them, their quality is ruined. Between the few I tried so far, similar cases are Archaist (after some tries with the Sticky Keys configuration, it works better, but control is still sluggish) and Zynaps Remix (nice power-up system, but it crashes frequently and the graphics are a mix of old and renewed).
