Color Quest

by AnimeGeek32 - Jam Entry

Your objective in this game is to mix two colors in match the result to the target color. If you mess up, you can always bump the reset cube. All you need are the arrow keys for movement and bumping onto the color cubes. I originally intended to submit this as a compo entry. However, I missed the deadline due to a bug in the game that required immediate fix at the time. I managed to do it and made some further improvements with the game to make it a bit more fun. Enjoy.

I had to try this since it looks similar to my game, lol.
Is purple ever a target? I played around 10+ times hoping to get the 3 colours. The pink block in the middle screwed me up once or twice, and I expected to turn brown upon interacting with all 3 colour blocks (would have been a nice target too). Other than these things, I can't really complain. Hope to see you next LD!

@Maple Thanks for playing my game. Yes, purple target is in there. I guess my random generator wasn't picking that very often. I just tweaked my code so that it does and reuploaded it to my server. You can try it again. Also, if I have more time to add 3 color combinations, then I would.

Solid idea! Could use a lot of polishing though :P

Never saw color matching in a game before! Wish it could be a bit more fast-paced, having to navigate after figuring out the combo was a bit of a drag but cool idea

This game had potential, but was cut extremely short and not made hard enough.

Good work completing the game. You should have definitely made the player move faster. Build and expand on this and just keep learning!

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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
