Ludum Dare 31 — December 5th-8th, 2014 — Theme: Entire Game on One Screen

by Yorgo - Compo Entry

This is as finished as RotaMaze is gonna get. It was my first time with Unity, and nearlyu first time wtih C#.. I learned a TON, and had a blast, but ultimately the clock killed me! still it was totally worth it.

The idea was a rotating maze that the player platforms through. You press SHIFT left and SHIFT right to rotate the maze.

At the end a glitch popped up that broke the game! I don't have time to solve it, so I left it in there..

Cool concept and levels, and that's about it.

It's good to ear that you learned stuff and had fun doing this jam!
it's a shame that you didn't have the time to do more, cause it had a bit of potential, with some level design it could have been fun really ^^

I liked the idea that everything that is used by the game is on-screen even if it's not used, it fits the theme quite well I think. (Although it could have been cool if the object were just moving to make the level, like disapearing from the right to go in the level. I think I'm not clear when I say that.. Well. )

Oh and just sayin: Shiftleft and ShiftRight is so much not intuitive, and the game doesnt say anything about it!! Be careful with that next time :)

Congratulation for making this game !

The concept is pretty simple but also pretty good. What a shame you didn't have the time to do more levels !

My advice for next time is to make more feedback to the player : A little sound, a cool animation at the end of the level.... Something*

Okay, so it's not "shift left" and "shift right", it's "LEFT Shift", as in the Shift key on the left side of the keyboard vs. the Shift key on the right side of the keyboard. Well, other than the odd controls (and the fact that you didn't mention that you have to use the arrow keys AS WELL to play), it's all right for what it is. There's definitely an idea here than you can make into a larger game!

Good concept and easy to start playing.
PS. You have a bug in your game that if you click fast enough you can rotate infinite :P

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 ( 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.
