Spirit of the Maze Journey

by kulhajs - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Entry for my 3rd LudumDare main event. I decided to start with Windows Phone version and then port it to PC, so by now only WP version is available. I'm working on PC version as you read this.

EDIT #1: Added Windows version and updated Windows Phone version. I tested Windows version on 2PCs only so please, if the game doesn't work on you machine let me know on my email

Also time lapse day #1:

Windows version controls: Arrow keys to move

Wanted me to download some other things before playing. Not sure what that was about, but was not able to get it working :/

Unfortunately I couldn't get this working either :(

I did install dotNet 4 & 4.5 like it asked but now it just crashes on launch with a System.NullReferenceException.

Hi guys, thanks for comments, I was expecting some issues, hopefully I'll find some free time to fix those, unfortunately I'm quite busy during the week.

@LevelUpJordan I sure will!

nice graphics, controls I felt like could be slightly better.

no sound?
Slightly steep initial learning curve/obstacles

This really minds me of that labyrinth table where you guide a marble on the table away from the holes. The physics is really questionable, especially when I hit the yellow blocks by its side.

@namrog84 I know that controls are bad, but like I said primary platform for me was phone where you control your direction by tilting your phone, and I wasn't really sure what would be the best way to simulate that on keyboard.

I could never get through with the current controls. It'd be great if you added more responsive controls. Eventhough the graphics are just shapes, it comes about quite nicely! :)

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 ( 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.
