Amaze 10+

by necmelt2006 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Mazes! Mazes every where!!! Amaze 10+ is "a maze" (oh! ;) ) game where you have move the blue rectangle to the red one. The mazes are generated randomly. You begin with 10 secodes in the count down, every maze solved gives you +10 secondes for the next level. Each level has number of lines/columns. have fun! :)
click on the blue rectangle and move to drag it.

no music at this moment :(, I didn't have much time :/

Thanks to Laurent Gomila creator of SFML.
Thanks to MazeWorks for the algorithm to generate mazes

"OpenAL32.dll missing from your computer" What do you need installed to run this?

I'm assuming you also used Gosu?
You need to include "OpenAL32.dll" or else it won't run.
The generation part is really cool though

Overall a really nice little game :) Could get quite intense trying to reach the goals and seeing the time slowly run out as you're trying to make out the path :D Also, cool touch with the random generated levels, very nice job :)

Fun to play and looks nice--really would benefit from some music though. If it was synched to the background color changing it would be mesmerizing.

Sweet! I love this. The only thing that would have made it better was sound. I thought it had high replayability.

Love the color changing background, and a pretty fun little game. A few times it bugged up on me while the window was full screened(couldn't move the square anymore), but it ran fine minimized.

I laughed a good deal at the amazing countdown voice, especially the first two times when I was still trying to figure out the controls (it's more fun that way! ^_^) It's pretty dang hectic when you traverse down the wrong path!

A very simple idea, but the random generation really made it awesome. :) Great job!

The random generation works well! I also likes the 3, 2, 1 voices. ;)

Very good game! It's really fun. I like how the mazes are generated,I can't pass level 9!
I hope you continue developing it, I would be great to play it with music and sfx.

though it would benefit from some music, i enjoyed this game. the procedural generation of the maze was well done, and the idea of the game is nice. i would love to see a complete version of this game for tablets. really nice work :D

Thanks for all those comments, really encouraging. I will make an update with more voices :), music, and try to make a config file to change resolution (i think that changing window size is bug from sfml). Right now, i try to learn cocos2d-x, so i hope i can make it for smatphones and tablets one day, but not now since i'm learning :p

A nice simple maze-finder. Was surprised/amused by the voice audio. ;)

Not bad at all! I like how the levels were randomized. Kept my interest for a while. Good job!

I like it, as I love mazes,
For me the random generation made the mazes sometimes realy hard or realy easy...
But nice controls anyway!

Great job on random generated mazes. Very fun and simple game. Mazes with timers are a mean combination hehe

Great, very innovative game mechanic! You're actually not limited by the speed of your character but by the speed of your brain! You could maybe revise the graphics, especially to make the walls easier to spot; making it easier to make decisions about where to go at a glance. Procedural generation is great, just sometimes it's quite impossible (but other than that it works well).

I really enjoyed it, using the mouse to drag the character was very interesting. Took me awhile to realize though.

All in all i really enjoyed it, good job!

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.
