The Adventures of Entire Game and One Screen

by papazoot - Compo Entry

Puzzle game.

Launch the ball with WASD or arrow keys.
Reset with R.
Click on the arrow to rotate it.

Note: when passing over an arrow, all other arrows on the level will rotate, this is not a bug.

Very unique. Puzzles are challenging. Love the soundtrack. Awesome work!

couldn't get past 2nd arrow, they just flipped while ball was moving.

Heh wow I really like that mechanic. Also made really nice use of the theme. I did think it was bugged at first when the arrows kept rotating on their own, so could probably do with explaining that mechaninc a bit better, but once I understood what was going on I loved it :D

That was rather annoying than fun. But it was challenging. I wish the tiles would have resetted themselves to the point they were when starting to move. But that might have made it to easy.

Very cool

Nice mechanic, I'm just want to make sure that, if the level is designed by hand or auto-generated?

It's designed by hand.

Those last two hurt my brain, it ended up being mostly trial and error, but it was fun and I won! Yeah. Cool game (:

This was a complete mind bending for me :). Interesting idea! I think I gave up on the last level. Good work!

Yikes that's challenging! You might want to think about some kind of clearer indication of what way the arrows will rotate on the next collision. Also it would be nice if restarting put the arrows in the state you had them when you started.

I lile your take on the theme a lot :P

A bit confusing at first but then it got really challenging and fun! For the last levels you really needed to come up with a method of thinking (unless you wanted to bring out pen and paper ;p ), I sort of counted modulo 4 for each arrow. I really liked this game, would love to play it on my mobile phone. Great work!

Hi there. Really nice puzzle. Love the idea. Clean implementation. Would have been nice to have sounds for rotation moment maybe and another for passing over lock/unlock, not sure though... Good job!

Nice puzzle with an interesting mechanic, the tile animation between levels is cool.

It's not a huge problem but It was a bit tedious to reset all arrows after retrying.

Well this game is looks great. But I cant dig it. I always cross the border. Sadly, I can't controll the ball.

Really innovative concept! I had a hard time figuring out the pattern of the arrows when there were a lot of them on the level. Seems like there's a lot of trial and error when solving the puzzles. Either way, I haven't seen a game quite like this before so it was a nice surprise! Great job!
