Don't mess with magical cube

by toadd-y - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are a young boy having fun to a funfair when you met a weird guys talking about a tiny cube supposed to be magical and that contains a parallel world. You made fun on him and you told that his story is stupid. For revenge, the old strange man threw you a curse and made you prisoner of the cube. It's your punishment and now you have you to pass the tests of the cube to hope to get out.

PS: It was my first LD so... not enough experiences and a bad overall organisation, only level 1 and 3 are playable... have fun anyway! : D

About my theme interpretation, i think it's: There is no tiny world. A tiny world can be huge, it's all about point of view.

Concerning the controls:

Move with arrows.
Jump with SPACE.
Action key is X.
To pass the very awful scenario text, press space :)

About the goal of the game:

It was planned to add some in game indications but i was not done always due to the lake of time. So, to end up the game (escape the cube); you need to complete the six levels (in the version i released for the compo, you can only play on level one and three). However, this is not a linear game, in each level you have what i called a "console" (a super interrupter) that needs a key to be activated, those key are hidden in levels. You start the game with the red key. To clear a level, you just need to find the "super-interrupter" and activate it.
I hope it's clearer now : D

Nice! But damn, that starts hard right off the bat! I wasn't much good at it, but it was fun, and hard XD

Good job!

Also, the text at the start looked pretty bad on my machine, really hard to read, not sure if that was a general issue or just something specific to me? And it took me a while to work out you had to press space to continue :D

Thanks! Yeah i know, the game is hard (and too short :p) but it's because i did not implemented the in-game indication so it's a bit like "do it yourself man" :p i added some indications in the entry description.
I'm glad you liked the game, did you completed the two available levels? : D

I would've liked it a lot more if there were any sounds in it :/

The level design was pretty good, it wasn't clear how to get to the red things at first and activate them, but after rereading the description for controls, it was overall pretty nice, and difficult. Good job on your first game, I really liked the graphics :P

Too hard for me :( I dont like platformers anyway, (translation: i suck at platformers anyway) but I liked the graphics and the switch mechanisms. I couldnt hear any sound though - is it missing, or is my sound card broken again?

Ho no your sound car must be just fine! I needed one more hour to finalize the game so the sounds are missing. Sorry about that :( i know the game is a bit too hard, but it's for hardcore gamer man! : D

I thought it was quite clever and well designed.

I had a few frustrating moments when a sideways moving platform wouldn't touch the wall I was in and I couldn't jump to get on it. I got it eventually, but it seems like if fixed the game could be more enjoyable!
