You're a little cell trying to escape from your game, simply reach the lever to make the screen explode and go to the next one. You've also been given the power of morphing into tetris-like blocks, have fun! :)

My god i love how this game looks! Those explosions at the end of the level feel super duper good. Personally rather than a lever for the detonation, I would have a plunger (and allow you to push the plunger down).

I reached what I think was level 3 (the one with the S shape) and couldn't figure out what I was meant to do next. Hope it's just me being dumb and not an error as I was enjoying playing the game!

Thank you for making this and very best of luck in the competition!

Solid entry ! I like the music/mood, and while the levels often feels like action, getting all the bonuses turns out to be more puzzling. Would have preferred a more colorful universe, and a little less slippy tetriminos controls but it's quite good.

Very cool game but... I hate your level design :D
I die many times because of one pixel...

Awesome graphics and audio. The game itself is a lot of fun. What more to say? Well done!

Nice work! Awesome art and clever puzzles. Loved the message you get when you collect all the cards. If there is something that could be improved, it's the player's controls, the sole pixel guy is very slippery and it's easy to accidentally fall with him.

Cool and polished game! Love the art, especially the explosions. Also a lot of content - a very good job!

Good work! It is very well made and pretty enjoyable.
I liked the graphics, audios and the awesome animation of explosions.
It also has a cool concept of play with the blocks.

Hi there. Interesting idea with the tetris block phase each room. Got stuck at first room with jagged staircase tho'. Nice FX on complete level. Liked the hiptunes music!

Nice polish and good game feel as well, congrats!

controls are way too frustrating, sticky keys / input doesn't reset half the time. Good style / graphics, interesting loop track, but just wanted to smash my keyboard in the end.

Thank you all for playing and giving feedback!
@RadStar: Ahah yeah I hope the intro won't keep some people from playing the game, I should have added a skip option...
@chamberlainpi: I quite rushed the game at the end of the compo, so I focused on little details and forgot to fix some bugs like this one where you can't reset when you're dying/reapparing. :/

Keep it up!

This is really fantastic. Platforming Tetris pieces? Brilliant. Great art, great music, great level design (with secrets too!). The jump is ever so slightly touchy, but otherwise, this is just amazing. I hope you consider building this even further, though it's really got a ton of content for a game jam. Amazing work!

Really awesome. Love the platforming with the tetris blocks. The music and graphics are also amazing.
It's difficult landing on those single block platforms though, since they can sometimes be a bit too slippery.

I like the concept, but the implementation needs some work. The controls are really frustrating. The level design could be much improved as well. Some levels had a much easier solution that the one that was clearly intended. This is nice when the alternative solution is clever and makes the player feel smart, but in this case it just felt like sloppy design. Most of the challenge came from the controls, not from the puzzles themselves. Freezing the pieces in exactly the exact position was extremely difficult, even though the solution was pretty obvious.

The graphics were good, and the audio was decent. I'm really confused by how the theme was used here, it seems like you totally forgot about it. I was disappointed that getting all the letters didn't added anything special to the ending, no extra level or dancing snowman or anything... Still, it's a nice platformer puzzler. Mixing Tetris with platformers has been done before, so it's not exactly innovative, but I like the approach you took. =)

Great concept, cool execution. Levels that solved itself without all the pieces seemed... Broken.

What's it got to do with the theme though? Or the name with anything else other than not fading to black at the end of each level?

Thematically an incoherent mess, which might not be a bad thing if people like it. I didn't like it.

But a great achievement nonetheless :)

great game.
what I didn't like is that the puzzle was to get that extra thing.
but over all I enjoyed the game

Dec 28, 2014 @ 1:31pm

Cool concept! I Included it in part 18 of my Ludum Dare 31 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :)

Pretty interesting concept of using tetris blocks in a game that's well basically, not exactly tetris. Very solid platformer plus I really like the art (especially the lighting effects) and the music.
