Perfect Ten

by Zoey Frost - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Very simple, yet challenging, puzzle game. Teleport with your mouse, push buttons, occasionally ignore gravity, avoid spikes! And it goes without saying, do it all in under 10 seconds. 10 levels means 100+ seconds of fun, but let's face it, you are going to need a lot more time than that to beat all of them....

Some changes that were made last minute:
Wrote completely new music that fits the game better. Switched hosting from dropbox to newgrounds. I have no idea about the bandwidth limits of dropbox or if that would even matter. Better safe than sorry?
Added some spikes at the bottom of level 10 that you can use to restart the level so you don't have to wait for the timer if you get stuck.

This is genius. Unfortunately I can't get past level two: too hard! Brilliant though, apart from that.

Very nice game. I really liked the concept, and the difficulty curve was right on!

Aug 26, 2013 @ 4:47am

These puzzles are very hard. Then again I suck at puzzle games. The graphics look fantastic though. I'm interested in the other puzzles I didn't complete.

This is great, I really like the whole minimalist style you've got going on with this one. Quite the challenge too.

I had fun with this. My only major critique is that I felt like the difficulty of the levels was maybe a bit out of order. I spent the most time trying to figure out the first level, and the second and third went by quickly. Maybe I was solving the first one wrong (have to teleport up, and walk over at the same time?) Other than that, I loved the variety to the levels and the mechanics. Great work

Hard to play with a trackpad :/. Still fun and challenging for my coordination!

Damn that's pretty hard. Very cool puzzle game though!

I thought the game was impossible at first, because I didn't have the idea that the player can move horizontally while in the air.

This game is difficult(which I actually enjoy). Almost as difficult as Hana no Puzzle.
Anyway, I wish I had more levels.

Extremely difficult but that's what makes it enjoyable. Great game.

Nice game. Pretty tough though. I got up to the level where you have to multitask teleport while immediately moving left or right to avoid the spikes while also clicking on the next teleport spot. Thats when it got too hard for me. Unrelated, The music fits perfectly.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 7:39am

Very difficult yet it's a really challenging game for me.

I really dug this. The level design really started clicking a few levels in. Surprisingly challenging. My one piece of feedback is that the camera recentering on the character after every teleport was a little frustrating when I was trying to line up my next teleport. Great job. This is one of my favorite games I've played so far. :-)

Very good game with an excellent level design.
Too bad there is no AZERTY support.

Really fun game! Stressful and hard, but I like that :D

very hard, but funny

Aug 26, 2013 @ 2:45pm

Good game! It really gets you in. Very fun to play and solve the puzzles.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 2:47pm

That's too hard for me but overall it's a great game. If only the levels' hardness would increase more gradually.

Uploaded a video. That might help with those who are stuck on certain levels. Thanks for all the great comments. And to those who try this with a trackpad, I salute you. I tried it and gave up on the first level :3
Also, the music sounds terrible without headphones and is way too repetitive. I'll do something about that post-compo.

Creative game, and I actually thought the music sounded pretty good. Too hard for me though, couldn't get past the third level.

Newgrounds wants me to create an account. Pass.

Not a fast clicker but your game is actually innovative!

Really hard puzzle game, I like it :D

Zoey Frost says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 1:19am

Oh, has Newgrounds been giving people trouble? That's weird if it has. I'll provide the dropbox link as well.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 1:50am

A lot more here than I would have expected at first glance. I really like the 10-second puzzle mechanic.

Aug 27, 2013 @ 3:55am

Damn. It's hard. Really hard.

oxysoft says ...
Aug 27, 2013 @ 6:07am

That was fucking brilliant. Definitely make a post-compo version with more levels. This could turn into something big with cooler graphics (Keep the same style though)

I really liked solving all of these levels but I wish it had harder levels toward the end. But then again I like games like I wanna be the guy.

Nice little game. Difficulty is a bit harsh, a few easy levels to get to know the mechanic woul have been deeply apreciated. Apart from that, it works really smoothly.

Very innovative mechanics, i loved the animation of teleport!

Amazing level design and music, another rare solid game around here in 48 compo, excellent work.

this is hard. Nicely done. Music is great.

I was a bit confused with the camera movement as soon as you teleport.

Man this is hard.

Cool idea though.

klianc09 says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 10:49am

Cool game, but I encountered a (minor) bug:
When you start a teleport to above spikes and get the last button before you teleport, the win animation will trigger, but then you will teleport and get killed by the spikes and have to restart the level.

Very nice for 48 hours! Good audio and nice puzzle design and pacing.

There are so many cool parts to this game, I really like the variety of puzzles you built for this. Definitely challenging, but a whole lot of fun. Great work.
