Atomic Time Raiders

by Colapsydo - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Help Neo to find back its 10 electrons which are the path to the 10 seconds.

It was the first time I used Haxe/Openfl during a LD and it really was a nice experiment.

One of the best intro's I've seen so far. The gameplay is quite simple but the audio is well done.

Love the intro and the concept itself. If you take it further having some points system for completing puzzles in the fewest moves would be cool.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 5:21pm

Nice and well done puzzle game, managed to complete them all!

Great intro too!

Great intro and presentation, I love the character! I will admit it, for the most part I was randomly pressing switches until they all eventually light up! But I manage to finish! yipee!

Nice puzzles, like the way you tied it in with the theme, although the gameplay doesn't have anything to do with it.
Good game, clean design.

Epic intro! The game gets really hard, or maybe I'm dumb :P

This game makes me feels stupid, I passed the levels, but by trial & error :x
Good puzzle system though.
Not really fitting the theme unfortunately.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

@Lurieh: Really the theme is present.
Not as a part of the gameplay, but that was a personal choice.
The whole story is based on the definition of the second.
Ok the link with "10 seconds" is low, but it is.

Maybe I'm wrong of thinking that the theme should be a frame and not a mandatory gameplay constraint.

This was so much fun, and the little nucleus character is so adorable! Very well done, congratulations! It's the best puzzle game I've seen on LD 27 so far. However, I found a bug: when in level 10 you press "menu" and choose level 10 again, the screen simply goes white. Also, I think the 10 seconds concept could have been featured instead of time as a general concept. BUT: this is an excellent game. Very, very good!

I like your interpretation of the theme, it makes your game stand out from the crowd! The intro is awesome and the graphics and gameplay are solid. Very good job!

Completed! Highly polished puzzle game. I especially like the "hee-bee!" sfx, very adorable.

That intro as deep. Also the "yippee" noise is great, loved it.

Finally completed this good puzzle game.
Some of the first levels are the same (the buttons are just moved).

Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:07pm

The introduction is really great. I think the game will be better with real control of the eye (with keyboard) but it's good even so.

Great intro ! :D Too bad its aim seems to be making the link with the theme

Well done, wish there was more variety to the gameplay elements. You really got me with the intro and I wish you would have had the possibility to build upon the story introduced in the beginning.

Very nice job here!

Such a great mood ! And pretty fun too ! Congrats ! \o/ ♥

Sep 1, 2013 @ 5:22pm

Cool little game, very nice voice acting, even a bit creepy when the eye opened... :) Great story too, rather trippy in a way. Problem is I'm terrible at this kind of games, nothing else to complain about! ;)

Yippee neo got his electrons back! Nice embellishment around the puzzle game, pressing the buttons is satisfyingly done.

The intro is fantastic and sets up the mood of the game really well, the explanation of the mechanics are clear and simple. The music fits in really well and the game itself is super fun to play. Interesting take on the theme, great job!

Good all around game.

Great graphics, amazing intro, fun to play. I loved it. I featured it in my video compilation series of LD27 games, if you would like to check it out :)

Awesome music, funny sound effects and very well polished graphics! I like the mood it all creates together! Also, the introductory narrative was very well done!
But I found the game somewhat hard... I was a little confused all along and sometimes had to rely on luck to beat a level. =( But it might be just me, I don't know.

Anyway, good job! =D

Interesting approach. I like that game about physics. But I didn't understood the rules.

Beautifully polished game with lots of character in the little details. I really enjoyed the puzzling and the difficulty curve was spot on. Excellent work!

I loved the spoken intro.

Sep 6, 2013 @ 10:19am

Epic intro! Is it actually true?
The puzzles get really challenging since I don't know the math theory behind it..
This is extremely polished! Great work!

Great game, not the usual game I've been seeing. The art and music work well and the intro was cool too.

Nice one! :D

No 10 second time limit. I love this entry. No but I really like the gameplay. The puzzles are really challenging.

Good take on this kind of puzzle, with a good visualization of the rules. A few puzzles actually made me grab pen and paper to write down vectors.

Nice game! This was an interesting use of the theme. :)

But man, I suck at puzzles... xD

Thanks for your kind comment on my game! I'm glad that the hot/cold music mechanic worked well for you and that you found at least one friend!

As others already remarked, you have a really cool intro there - and I also like the flow between levels a lot. Without the violet circle transition it would be even smoother. The gameplay is clear and still pretty challenging. Great job!

I finished all the levels, although it some was a bit more luck/trying stuff out than actually thinking everything through. Yippie!
