Chromyrinthby Chris Delta - Compo Entry
Chromyrinth is my first Ludum Dare, and fifth game ever. In Chromyrinth, you play as a teeny tiny creature trying to use lasers to purify all the colors in its excessively colorful world.
The world is made up of many different zones, each of which can be controlled and moved around like a tile in a generic sliding tile puzzle. Your ultimate goal is to collect enough energy packets to turn on all 4 lasers, and to align the lasers such that they all intersect in the middle of the white zone.
Controls: WASD or arrows to move around, jump into a control point (the staticky, spinny squares of which there is only one in each zone) to move a zone around, spacebar to release control of the zone. X to suicide and respawn at the last control point you touched.
IMPORTANT: Your character starts off in the room in the top right corner of the white square with the gray control point if you're having trouble finding it!, it's possible he's already attached himself to the control point, in which case space to detach him. See also the second image, which explains some junk and points him out for you
edit: accidentally included the readme for another game, is now delete.

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.
