by Fazz - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Build an inter-planetary trade route as quickly and with as few moves as possible. Progressive levels become more difficult.

This is an HTML5 game that runs in-browser. I recommend using Google Chrome. It will run on most smartphones.

You can view my lovely code online via the 'Web - Normal' link.

I was lacking inspiration on this, but was determined to get an entry in. Try and have fun!

Cool. Reminds me a lot of the game Network on BrainBashers. I have to say I found it a bit easy, is all. I played through the first three levels before it crashed and I didn't notice much of a progression of difficulty.

Nice puzzle game here! Yeah a bit too easy, but it was fun to play!

Clicks = 24; Time = 29.2
Simple idea but I like it. Could be more challenging though.

I like it. I thought I was supposed to connect all of the objects at first, but I figured out that there are only two planets reasonably quickly. It was frustrating in the way puzzle games often are-- but it was satisfying to click and make a whole section of the board light up, and it was rewarding to win the level.

Good idea, sometimes I felt like it could not be solved and restarted :D Well done!

Hey all, thanks for the feedback.

Due to the randomness of the algorithm I'm using to generate the puzzles, some play throughs will be easier than others, but I assure you, every puzzle has a solution.

It was OK, although I had this persistent feeling it was missing something. Not sure what though..

Really good. Could be better with levels of escalating difficulty. Great job!

I got really lucky on my first one, only needed 20 or so clicks including my messups. Subsequent ones took more time. Nice work.

Simple but fun, the idea is cool, Great work :D

Simple puzzle game, but still enough to keep me interested.

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.
