by jadams - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A puzzle-platformer in which you need to guide all three figures to their exits by switch the colors behind you.

Built using the HTML5 canvas element and so should work in any modern browser. I've only tested it in the current chrome and ff releases under windows. Requires a keyboard to play but sometime soon I'll add gamepad and touch controls.

Pretty cool, reminds me of portal for some reason

Really interesting game - with a lot of levels done in 48 hours! I enjoyed the fact that you had to think in a very different way than usual - almost as if I was playing through a game like Portal again.

It seems a little unfinished in terms of graphics/audio etc, but the levels provided are varied and interesting. Very good job overall, and I hope you continue working on it!

Incredible! An intelligent simple puzzler that's not frustrating?! Sold, for 5 stars!

A great, simple concept that fits the theme well. Nicely done!

I'm not sure if I cheated, but I basically ended up using player death as a way to get past the bridge level.

Good concept, simple and clever.

What a great idea! There are a lot of games looking like Mondrian's paintings here, but yours is the only one I've seen so far where that is a gameplay mechanic, and not just "hm, I need to get the theme in here, somehow". Also, you have the coolest level selector so far! :-) Fantastic game, really enjoyed that one!

Took me a sec to figure out that I need to be inside the color to change it. Theme worthy simplistic fun!

Cool idea for a game. Great puzzles.

I love this. You have to think in three phases of existence and the 'flood fill' aspect makes you have to think ahead to make sure you don't block something off. I think this is great.

Web game without relying on browser plugins FTW!

Cool idea and challenging. Good job.

Holy shit. First I thought "Oh, well, that's some cute switchy-itchy-gamey-wamey.", and then I clicked on level 11 and thought "Fuck." - awesome!

So colorful and still so minimalist. The game is great and planned.

You have some nice mindf***ing going on here. :) Love it. Controls took sime time to get used to. Very smooth and intuitive menu also :)

The "swap colour" mechanic makes way for good puzzles and it's decently executed for the most part. The platforming seemed a little glitchy, but is generally solid.

I enjoyed this immensely. It seemed easy at first, so I was happy to see the level design increase in complexity. It was very fun, and the fact that it is built entirely with HTML5 canvas is awesome.

Lost Vikings of color! Great concept and game. One of the few entries I finished out of pure intellectual enjoyment of the puzzle.

Great idea!

Really interesting, a lot of potential

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.
