A Pair Of Wizards

by jadams - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Our two wizards actions have been bound together by some mysterious force!

Use the arrow keys to move and space to cast a ball of ice and guide them to the portal tiles to move on.

Avoid stepping on the spikes, and use your ice ball to temporarily cool the lava enough to walk over.

Also, undo last move with U key (keep pressing it to go back further) and reset the level completely using R. The +/- can be used to jump between levels. Esc returns you to the title menu.


Other notes;

- There are bugs, most importantly with standing in lava not being fatal if it reforms as you are standing on it or have used the undo function.

- This is my first time producing something using libgdx so if the .jar file doesn't run for you, let me know and I'll look into it. All I know is that works for me on this machine.

- I've put the .jar file up for now. The html build looks like it works and I'll put it up when I get a chance to.

Good and polished puzzle game! The only thing I didn't like is that I couldn't move the wizards by continuously pressing the keys; I had to release them and press 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.
