RGBox is a game about boxes that fall from the sky!

Avoid getting crushed, and only touch boxes that are the same color as you!

The blue and green versions of the little guy are nearly indistinguishable.

Hi there. Interesting idea, found it tricky to play. Don't get much time to react to colour of boxes, so ended up just dodging all the time. When I was lucky got a run of 3 boxes same colour and could just move side to side, without that I think would be too tricky. Like the graphics and sound style.

Interesting concept, my only issue is the control scheme. I suggest to move the zxc to use both hands for controlling.

What engine did you use? I'm not sure why the game would be 10MB unless it's the engine itself, since the graphics are pretty straightforward. Or maybe music?

Also, what did you use to make the music? I like it!

The music is good, and the concept is clever. It's very difficult though, and the blue/green colors are almost identical.

Neat concept, but having to jump and change to the right colour makes it a tad difficult.

Nice work though

A little slow at first, try more blocks at a time/faster. only 10% chance to even have to move each drop. Also, if you can, disable color changing while standing still on a box.

There are some bits of fine-tuning to be made, but overall, what you have here is solid.
However, it feels limited. Maybe it's just me, but I think it would be better if you died if you touched something that WAS your color, as that would allow you to walk across two blocks without needing to jump. Otherwise movement is incredibly difficult.
Regardless, well done!

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
