Dead Pixel

by The Jahn - Compo Entry

You’re an electron trapped in a single dying pixel, keep it alive by collecting energy – just make sure to stay in the failing circuit while doing it.

It's my first game using HaxeFlixel, so try not to get your hopes too high. Expect some bugs and maybe some overall poor performance.

Cool little game, took me a while to work out that the pixel's position depended on my mouse's height.

Very, very fun! Love it! Reminds me a bit of Super Hexagon.

Difficult but very fun to play. I liked the failing circuit effect.

Great work. Simple to play and nicely polished, this would suit mobile devices to a tee.

Love it! Totally my kind of thing. I love games with a simple original concept like this. 5 stars for fun. Music was pretty good too. Graphics were simple but effective.

Fun game and very nice interpretation of the theme ! Took me some time to understand the mouse controls the Y position, it would definitely be an interesting mobile game.

Interesting premise, and a cool take on the "infinite runner" concept that fit the theme. Fun game, great job!

Cool idea, very difficult, especially when the angle changes drastically. I like the music.

Simple and fun! I like that there is some give (health bar) instead of instant death if you stray outside the lines once. Keeps it more fun (yet still very challenging) that way. Good job.

Hi there. Nice idea. Like both graphics, music and sound effects. Think that it gets too hard too quickly.

The overall concept is nice and interesting, I wonder if and how would suit a mobile platform (would it just be played by hold the tapping on the screen? Would it use the accelerometer?)

I'm not sure how much procedural generation is there (maybe only the shapes, but not the orientation?).

Keep on improving it! :D

Simple but really neat idea, and incredibly fun! Keep going with the HaxeFlixel!

Awesome idea! I like that I only have to adjust the vertical movement of the dot instead of tracing a line.

Simple concept but fun and challenging. I liked the double use of the theme. I also though the audio fit well with the game. It was a little challenging for me, but that would probably change with practice.

Lovely idea, like those old funfair games where you have to keep a steady hand to manoeuvre a steel loop along a steel maze type thing.

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. 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.
