No Color Allowed

by Aaron San Filippo - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Remove the red spheres with the minimal number of moves.

Disclaimer: I started with 3 hours left in the competition, because I was too busy before, but I really wanted some Ludum Dare action :)

So it's not particularly compelling! If I had more time, I would try making it so you could push the black blocks with your block.

I agree, it's pretty and slick, but it does fall short. If you had time to play with the ability to push the black blocks, I'm sure you could have made some really interesting puzzles.

Quite basic game but considering you only had 3 hours left it's still a pretty nice result :]

Pretty good for 2 hours of work. I'd love to see it fleshed out some more.

Nice work! I would love to see more levels or in full, rotatable 3D!

The concept is really cool. It has potential.
I'm a bit disturbed by the reverse controls!

This seems like a good prototype, you should develop it further.

Nice for 2h work, just was missing an objective, so I can fail.

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.
