A Square In A Room

by PapyPilgrim - 48 Hour Compo Entry

A little puzzle-game, you have to find your way through the room and reach the green zone.

I made this in under 12 hours, and nearly 2/3 of that time was spend designing levels and testing it (big thank you to my familly; especially my sister)

Tools Used
FlashDevelop - flixel

Very interesting take on a memory game, for visual / spatial memory. Although it is a bit frustrating. :)

Brilliant simplicity. And nice attention to details with the different color fading and how the light propagate. Just missing seeing the whole map at each end.

PS: That's very stupid of me, but when I hit my first red wall, I incorrectly assumed that now all walls were killing me, and thus also avoided the gray ones (which sadly are not on the way for 3 levels) and I always ended up on the reds, preventing me to understand my error and thus using the highlight helper. Since like that it was a bit frustrating and looked too hard, I almost gave up. Maybe mention something about the red/gray difference in description?

For me, this one scores higher in 'mood' than most other games I've played so far - for something so (visually) simple it all fits together so well. Impressively polished overall.

All of the audio was fantastic! I'm awful at this kind of game, but I didn't really feel frustrated losing a lot.

I really like the use of theme and the different layers of invisible walls is a great concept. But there's a little too much trial and error in some areas. Especially level 15 -agh. Even the levels after that one seemed fairer.

Very innovative and puzzling!

Nice! Bit too much "bad type" trial an error in later levels, but it's all good.

Really enjoyed the game, but god some levels were cruel. Fits the theme perfectly, well done!

Loved it man, it felt like a 2D Devil's Tuning Fork with the awesome visuals (and yet still remains simple and pleasing). The audio was a nice touch as well. I got a bit too frustrated at times with the pixel-accurate collision, though. D: (but that's not really your fault, it's mine haha)

Great game! :D

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.
