Shape it!

by _beta - Compo Entry

Shape it! is an arcade game where you must changue into a determinate shape in order to dodge obstacles.

Use right click to turn into a sphere and left click to turn into a cube.

This is my first Ludum and it was kind of messy, since i was in two hackathons at once, yet im happy with the result.

Had troubles unraring the file, the standard ubuntu file roller said "Error: unable to parse files". Installed unrar with apt-get and then I could extract it. Could run the executable though. "bash: ./ShapeIt!.exe: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error" it said. Maybe a small tip for next time: don't use exclamation marks in filenames. Screenshots looked interesting.

Nice and simple game. Visuals and audio are well done.

A bit too simplistic for me. Like the music though. :)

That spinning background made me quite dizzy after a few seconds. But it was kinda fun, with a bit more work it could be nice timekiller. I liked the music as well.

Maybe add a little more depth somehow, it's not a bad game though

Nice and simple game, the background is confusing sometimes.

Nice. Plays nearly like a rythm game. Good for 10 minute sessions.

Nice music, it felt like the shapes didn't follow the rhythm of the music. That would have been nice to have. Nice game anyway!

For some reason I thought I had to hold the left or right mouse buttons and it was making the game very hard... once I learned I just needed to click the button the game got much easier! 540 was my score. Gratz on creating and submitting your first game!

Pretty well done for a first! my record is 696. The music loop got annoying after a while though, and it seemed to randomly spike in volume.

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
