The Blind MazzzZZZZe of Colors

by fr_automatik - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A game where the only thing you can see is one color.
You are in a maze, but you can't see anything. You have to get to the potato at the other end of the maze.
Be warned, walls are deadly.
Note: If you don't understand something, use the konami code on the main menu.
Then play.

Really great idea. Controls were a little bit finicky, but otherwise it was well implemented.

Very innovative, but a bit weird, I lost myself pretty quickly xD Still I love the concept

Very clever idea, but I haven't made it to the end of the maze D:
Still great game.

This is a very neat game! I enjoyed how each color represented a different bit. It was hard to get the point of, and I ended up just giving up. Part of what really made this game fun, was that there was there felt like there was a really set back when you died. Different and interesting.

Nice Idea!
I've been unable to complete a maze so far though :/
It'd be nice to get a chance (interactively) to see the RGB in comparison to a visible black/white level during the tutorial/instructions just to get a feel for how it reflects upon the game-play. Might make the controls a little more intuitive.

Other than that, no complaints, Nice job!

Concept is creative, but... I don't know. Maybe it isn't just for me. Presentation was beautiful and sounds alluring!

Interesting idea. I understood the concept but had no clue what I was doing. I was turning until the red went down then moving forwards, but that seemed to be fruitless.

Dammit! I'm just too stupid/impatient/lazy for this, sry mate. But cool concept nevertheless! I might try it again some later date.

Interesting concept.

Since you die if you touch a wall, I think the controls would be better if you were confined to the four cardinal directions. I didn't realize they weren't until I activated the cheat mode. Like the game idea though.

This is a very original idea, but way too challenging for me!

Neat idea! One change that would've helped me would be to have the player turn whenever they HIT "left" instead of holding it down. Sometimes it felt like I turned too quickly (although I'm not sure if that's what's really going on :)

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.
