Color Runnerby vinhuman - 48 Hour Compo Entry
I'm beginning work on a post competition version. If you want to rate my game for the 48 hour entry go ahead and play this very rough version now. If you'd rather play a more polished version for fun's sake later, I plan on uploading one this week based on your initial comments!
This is a simple game where you alter the world around you by hitting different color beacons. There are three beacons that consist of the primary colors. This allows for the creation of blue, red, yellow, orange, purple, and green. If a colored block is blocking your way, you must find the beacons that make your world that color, as it will remove that block. Make it to the white orb thing to beat the level.
Blue + Yellow = Green
Blue + Red = Purple
Red + Green = Orange
Blue, red, and yellow are their own beacons.
I didn't have time to do much in the way of level design but the basic concept is there.
Space to jump. There are a few more instructions in game.It's currently pretty bugged, some of them are fairly game breaking but what are you going to do with 48 hours?
I didn't get a lot of things done that I wanted to, but I managed to submit the game just in time following a BSOD and an internet outage during the last hour. Feedback welcome!
////////////Bugs and Tips///////////////////////////////
When you exit the map make sure to hit q to restart the level or escape to go the main menu, or else you will infinitely be falling.
Level 7 is semi-broken. You have to hit the red blob twice for it to work.
Pro tip: Press jump just AFTER you hit a wall or spam it, if you press it before it won't really work.
There is some weird graphical clipping glitch that happens on my laptop in the web player but not on my desktop. I didn't have any chance to actually test the web player due to the time constraint so I apologize for that. The game is actually beatable in about 2 or 3 minutes time if you know what you're doing.

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.
MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
