Boogie Woogie

by gabehollombe - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I present to you: Boogie Woogie - my first game ever. It's a combo Avoid/Collect style game (collect like-colored rectangles, avoid other colors).

It's written in HTML5, so it should run right in your browser.

Please enjoy!

Made with Impact, Bfxr, Pixen, Audacity, Garage Band, Chrome, and Vim.

60! Wow! That's higher than my best, I think.

Loved the music, and it's a pretty good take on the theme. One suggestion is that I died a lot by blocks spawning right on top of mine, and that's pretty frustrating.

It's a bit laggy, but other than that, good!

Love the idea, music, and the simplicity. Fits the theme really well. The difficulty curve needs adjust a bit though.

I liked the art style and the music, everything fits together really well. And it's fun to play, too - well done!

I think that it good too slow at first (4 or 5 rects with the same color?) and then it gets very hard too quickly. You should tune that curve.
Everything else look, sounds and feels really good. Good game!

This is deceptively simple and fun. Good idea.

36! I am bad. Very nice concept and execution, agree that maybe a slightly more balanced curve could really make this game pop!

Really fun with great music and lots of replay value. I got 111. The trick is to stay near the edges.

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.
