Simple Shape Adventures

by Stryphe - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Simple Shape Adventures is a combination of five game styles all using the same basic graphic blocks.

I tested in in Chrome on Windows.

Since I used some WebGL functions so if your web browser doesn't support webGL(IE10) the game will be pretty boring for you (everything will be white).

Tools used:


Thank you for stopping by.

Can you find the potato?

Got stuck for me on the shoot the red targets stage. Clicking them made a sound but nothing happened (I'm on Chrome 26 on windows if it matters). Up to then was a nice collection of games though.

I had a lot of trouble with the controls; they lagged quite a bit, especially on the pac-man levels, but also on the platforming.

I was expecting something worse when I saw the screenshots, but then seeing that it was a lot of classic mini-games, reimagined in a minimalistic way, it changed my mind. Actually rated it pretty good.

Cool! Minimalism for sure.

Kinda felt like the pac-man clone didn't fit as well as the others. It took way longer to finish a pac-man level compared to any of the other mini-games.

Great concept. Entertaining although I am not fond of the overly minimalistic bips ;) But nice fit.

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.
