Feint Signal

by brxtr - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Feint signal bars.

This is my first finished Ludum Dare game since LD23. I think the theme suits the style of games I make and by making the game I was procrastinating from university coursework.

It features online high scores if you play the game on (and login to) Game Jolt.

Made using FlashPunk, FlashDevelop, FL Studio and Fireworks (I seem to like software with names beginning with "F").

I've player super hexagon a lot the last couple of days, so I felt right at home in this game. very well done. it's also quite polished.

make a mobile version out of it, I'm sure it would sell nicely

Addictive. Loved the filmgrain effect on it and the overall look :)

Apr 29, 2013 @ 6:49pm

Really nice game, nice visuals. Interesting concept with the wheel avoidance, haven't seen that before. Nicely done.

That's really my kind of game. I would like to see the difficulty start off higher as it took a long time to ramp up, and also in my first play I got hit with a wall where all five sections were blocked so you might have a glitch in the level generation logic. Second time got to 100 before legitimately dying (jumped up too early).

Apr 30, 2013 @ 10:44am

This a simple yet a very nice and addicting game.
I like the visuals together with the music :D

Oh wow I think you broke my vision - the warping was seriously trippy! A simple concept wonderfully polished.

This is some of the best music I've seen so far! And your art is gorgeous and feels modern while still being minimalist.

Wow, that's really good. Now please excuse me while I go over here and *barf*. Okay, let's play again :)

Very fun to play.

May 3, 2013 @ 6:20am

Awesome. The music was so good I kept playing to hear it. Simple mechanic, slick presentation and fun. I got a little dizzy :) Good work.

Excellent idea and visual!(although "simple", they feel great!).

Very cool :D Visually this game is one of the best!

Cool game, love the way the circles pulse, and the simple but challenging gameplay.

Really enjoyed simple gameplay, very fun to play. There could be local high-score, so I can brag about how much far I went.

Well rounded game, but it became a little headache-inducing and tedious so I stopped.
The music is decent if a little repetitive. It occasionally had this strange blip when it started over but otherwise it suited the game well.

Nice graphics, I really liked the 'noise' overlay effect.
Lost seemingly randomly once or twice but otherwise a good game.

Great presentation and really simple but addictive gameplay. The pulsing was little hard on the eyes (for me at least), but yeah - awesome work!

I love the graphics and the mood, but I think the gameply is maybe too simple.

Really love the audio. Creates a lovely vibe. Boppin up and down in my chair while I play.

hughsk says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 6:16am

Really nicely polished, and good audio - it does remind me of Super Hexagon though!

Very nice. This is truly excellent. Great work for 48 hours. Here because of the 10s video and how great it shows. Nice work.

Madball says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 10:34am

What I saw its 10 second video, I thought: "I must play it!"
That's very addictive, and visuals are amazing. It shows that you don't have to be a super artist to make a good-looking game!

Really smooth! Great music! Concept fits theme perfectly!

BrothersT says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 12:10pm

Nice game. People really have gone minimalist this time! Slight problem with collisions at one point but apart from that, quite fun. Only thing is I wished the pulsing of the screen was in time with the music.

Great work! this colors, filter and music works so well!

Remembered me at Super Hexagon. Well done!

It has a really distinct style and fun music. Well done!

The bouncing effect of the speaker is nice but maybe a bit too pronounced.
Good adaptation and good music too.

Covenant says ...
May 5, 2013 @ 12:47pm

Very cool, very hard (but that just adds to the flavor, imo)... Really like this, amazing work!

rujo says ...

nice one! very challenging gameplay.

jadams says ...
May 6, 2013 @ 7:41pm

Impressed with the overall polish of this, great concept and graphics.

The pulsing is what stopped me playing it for longer. I'll be coming back to it again later.

Great art and music - motion sickness kicked in overtime with all the spinning and pulsing, but it was fun while it lasted. =)

Jeremias says ...
May 7, 2013 @ 6:36pm

The music and your visual style is great. Nonetheless I'm so unbelievable bad in this game :D

Maple says ...
May 8, 2013 @ 1:04pm

You also like to make your software start with "F" too, huh?
Ooh, this is good. I ended up getting a score of 53 after a bit (probably due to occasional frame drops -- don't worry about that though, because my computer is bottom of the range as of 3.5 years ago). I think the music is fitting, and the static really adds some texture to the visuals.

Now for the constructive criticism: I think the player hitbox should be a tad smaller -- a lot of my deaths were due to moving ever-so slightly too soon or too late and just clipping the edge of myself on the wall. Also, this is just indulgence, but I feel like free vertical movement may have been more interesting to play.

Good job.

Haaa this one is a lot of fun :) Good job!

Beerman says ...
May 9, 2013 @ 9:22pm

Nice job! Simple game, perfectly polished, fits the theme to a tee. I love the grainy film effect and how the bouncing keeps everything just slightly off from being perfectly geometrical - almost feels like you're playing the credits sequence to some late 60s spy movie :)

finefin says ...
May 12, 2013 @ 4:34pm

love the aesthetics of this game. awesome music, I dig those breakbeats. my highest score is 25. fun game!

The only one thing I didn't like was the instructions flashing on and off.

I got a score of 43 and the music reminds me of the band Plaid (which I love <3). Fantastic entry! All 5!
