by Lycaon - Jam Entry

I was *planning* on having this be a compo entry, but I was struck with the fury of REAL LIFE and was unable to complete it in time.

I had never made a puzzle game before this, and now I know why. Not a fan of designing puzzle games, which is why I only made four (frankly terrible) levels.

Doesn't matter, though, because I FINISHED.

Puzzle design is hard, i have tried myself, and you never know if it's obvious, simple, or hard like hell.

The game is simple but powerful. With a good puzzle designer, you could imagine many many levels, even a procedural way to create them.

Actually the idea is better than many "switched world" that i have seen for now.

This kind of game could keep me for hours! :)

The graphics work well, but the game is very short and I feel like the concept wasn't explored enough in the level design, which is a bit like you said.

Loved the minimalist graphics. The mechanic was really cool and it left me wanting to explore all the ways you could use them. The game ended just as I was getting into it.

Wow, wasn't expecting people to like this. Might make a few more levels, then.

Too short, and movement is sometimes stuttering. Other than that, the basic idea is an opportunity for level design practices, if you have the time to do more levels. Keep going.

Very clean design, reminded me of those old games that you can buy in vending machines. (I can't remember what those are called for the life of me). I liked the style of it the most, some SFX would have been great and more levels would be awesome. I think this game could be extended a lot into something really awesome and I'd like to see more. Nice one! :)

Great concept, I would have loved to see more levels though.

Use of a very potential mechanic! More levels using said mechanic would produce a great game!

That was pretty short :)

i think it's not the best game, because there are not enough Levels! but the Theme is very well implemented!

agree with the first comment. Good concept for a good puzzle game. Need good level design.

Pretty basic, mechanics where good but it certainly needed more level. That pesky thing called real life strikes again.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
