IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.

PuzzleBotby minism - 48 Hour Compo Entry
** NOTICE ** -- I recommend reading the instructions for the game at the bottom of the post before playing
There are, like my other two entries, some collision detection bugs with this game. It is possible for both the player and blocks to pass through one another when approached from some set of diagonal vectors. I wasn't able to figure this out under the time limit so unfortunately it had to stay in. Aside from that I'm happy with how this game turned out, I think its my best so far for LD48.
I'm going to go pass out now. Thanks for playing! :D
Also, ill be doing a stream at some point in the near future of play throughs of random LD26 games with some friends. I'll definitely make another post about that.
You can control puzzle bot with WASD or Arrow keys. Use W, Up, or Space to jump. Grab blocks underneath you by using J or Z. Throw blocks using K or X.
You can grab adjacent blocks by holding left or right and pressing grab. If you press "grab" again while holding a block, you can set the block down directly underneath you.
Clear blocks and avoid dying to advance. Blocks are cleared by lining up 3 of a common color in a row or column.

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.
