Minimal Malice Mighty Maze

by Xellinus - 48 Hour Compo Entry

My first game actually completed in over 10 years. So that's something.

It's a 1 button interaction maze. Click to move.
The goal is to get to the magical vegetable with as much power (blue bar) as possible. Each click costs power. Moving through zones do different things. All that jazz.

It may not be a good game but, it's a game. ;)

I really liked it once I figured out the strategy in it. Great job!

I found it a bit hard to work out how to play. I like the idea though.

At first, i though that the motion cost you, but it's a per click cost, so it whent from very hard to pretty easy. I like the color field idea.

Nice game. Pity I have to start on level 1 every time. Also there are situations where I cannot avoid taking damage, at least I think so.

nice job -- little quirky but i like the idea with the different zones for movement

The different fields make for a good mechanic, it's an interesting take on the theme.

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.
