Squid Squares

by 7Soul - Competition Entry

An young alien is decided to conquer a planet to show his father he is capable of doing so.
But this task is dangerous, so he takes a giant squid with him.
He will have to use the squid's ink spray to destroy the 12 defence stations of the planet and ultimately conquer it!

Difficulty was a little low for me though I did have to try level 12 a few times. Works well in wine on linux. Graphics look good. Where is the source code?

Fun little puzzle game. Nice pixel graphics.

Nifty take on the genre, the song got a little annoying after awhile. Good job overall.

Only really challenging puzzle was the last one. Other ones involved simply clicking places and watching what happened. Kinda like you finished the tutorial levels, got the first level done, then ran out of time. Great concept though! Directional blocks really changes how the puzzle factor works.

Taking away a point on graphics because your background wasn't made by you in the 48 hours. They are otherwise quite good. Remember, Ludum Dare is about making all the content by yourself! Unless you're doing the Jam, of course.

As previously mentioned, that music gets pretty annoying.

Really really good! Very polished and overall solid entry.
The only problem I had was that the shot sometimes did not destroy the target block (delta timestep issue?)
Also, the one-way blocks are difficult to grasp. If you intend to enhance this game you ought to explain the different tiles in detail.
