IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

Neonisationby Hegemege - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Your goal is to empty the center of the screen from colored tiles with the shapes available to the right. Try to solve each puzzle with as few clicks as possible. There are two "secrets" within the game. Please note that your scores are saved between sessions, so you may play the game later and use S to skip levels you have completed already (or try to get a higher score of course)
If you are using a Linux or OS X, you'll need to have python and pygame installed on your system.

Mouse left - select shape/destroy tiles
Mouse right - rotate shape
About the game
This was my third Ludum Dare entry, still going strong with Python + pygame, earlier ones being 23 (a success) and 24(a failure). So far, I think this is my best LD entry.
I got this idea pretty early, and it stayed the same through the weekend. I managed to get pretty much the whole game mechanics part done within the first 24 hours, so all I was left with was some graphics, audio, content, and polishing for the second day.
(You can create your own levels in the editor after beating the final level, and if you want to share them with others, either start the numbering from 27, or wipe the scores and start from 1. If you forget to set the goal for a level and get like "8/0" score, wipe that line from the scores.txt. I was going to add online level sharing and what not, but that's seriously out of scope within 48 hours!)

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.
