Hall of Flame

by ModestArcade - 48 Hour Compo Entry

8/26/2013 - Added OS X, Linux, and HTML5 versions of the game. If the web game's running slow for you, use Chrome or grab one of the downloadables. Thanks!

Hey, y'all!

This game was made in about 15 hours (rough estimate) using:

- Game Maker Studio
- Paint Shop Pro X
- sfxr
- iNudge

I was actually running a convention table at GlitchCon 2013 while making this! During the day, I was doing the normal convention table stuff, but after 7PM, I was programming this game, and I had a big honkin' monitor facing outward so that anyone who wanted to see what I was doing could look at my screen. It was a really fun experience. Through my journey, I also made a simple animation system from scratch in order to handle the frames I sprited in my WIPs.

The game controls with the arrow keys and is very short! There were supposed to be bombs that fall from the ceiling, eventually, but that got shelved due to time.

Thanks for playing!

I really liked it! The combination of floor puzzle and time limit made for an intense puzzle solving experience. the last level was extremely difficult, making it all the more satisfying to complete. My on;y criticism is that it is too short, but forgivably so due to the time constraints.

I really like the art, but I wish there was more puzzles though :)

I really enjoyed it, it's a pity you could not make more levels.

At first I thought I had to reach the upper door, too, what is it for?

The upper door opens automatically when all the tiles are lit and teleports you to the next level if you're within a certain radius. You don't need to be at the door when lighting the last tile or anything like that.

Since there's no need to reach the door in level 4 (because there's no level 5), its presence is sort of vestigial - it WOULD have been useful if there were more levels.

Thanks for your comments!

Too bad it hasn't more levels. I liked it a lot, and the graphics look nice :)

I liked the graphics and is a good little addictive puzzle game. More levels would have been good :)

I really liked it. Very simple idea and really works well with the 10 seconds limit. More levels are needed though!

Really fun little floor puzzle game. Like others've said, it would've been great if it were longer (with perhaps other new mechanics introduced along the way, too). Great work!

Interesting game! The sound effects fit very well and the graphics were superb.

I really like the art of the game and good gameplay.

Nicely done! I enjoyed this puzzler :0)

Nice idea, though it got too tough for me pretty quickly (the %#&$! level that circled around the center). Well done, overall.

I thought it was neat, I did enjoy it. BTW this is the guy that was bugging you at the convention sitting in the table next to you. You have my vote!

That is until I realized it was for participants only. Either way I still enjoyed your little game. If you ever release more puzzles then let me know.

Great little game - insanely hard with that time limit though.

Loved the graphics, the last level was a bit confusing and made me realise that you can basically clear any level by shifting back and forth between tiles.

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 ( 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.
