Vault - hamburger - 48 Hour Competition Entry

Navigate the minimalistic inner workings of a vault security system in this brain tease optimization puzzler.

Much of the fun (if any) is to be had in searching for optimal solutions to each board; thus online leaderboards!

I had fun with this; sorry I didn't have enough time to make more levels.

This was coded in AS3 with Flixel. Mochi API for leaderboards. sfxr, flan, photoshop, FlashDevelop. Although this game adopts classic hamburgominimalistic art direction, all assets were created fresh this weekend.

NOTE: It was brought to my attention that the last level was impossible. Sorry 'bout that! See post-compo link above for the fix.

Mind-boggling. Great take on the theme, nice setup and a really well-developed puzzler.

Really clever concept, but way too hard for me...a couple of tut levels to teach some basic "tricks" would be nifty

Very good puzzle concept. If you could ramp up the complexity slowly I could see myself getting hooked. Nice work!

Absolutely wonderful puzzle mechanic. This was one of my faves. Would love to see a bigger game with more colour and a billion levels, running on my phone. Very well done!
