A maze Land

by Vladik Plays - Compo Entry

This is a simple maze game where you need to collect all the keys and open the doors: you take one coloured key and that only opens the same coloured door. Use ARROW keys to move. I know my graphics are terrible...

You can play the windows version on linux by opening it with wine.

I'm sorry I didn't make any sounds for the game.

Please rate this game for some music and improvements on graphics, gameplay and so on.

Thank you.

I'm sorry. I messed everything up. I'll include normal Linux and Source soon + add Web version too. There will be only Windows version temporarly. Everything will be fixed.

Simple game, but pretty effective. No need to read 5 pages of rules to understand the concept. A couple of things could have been added (without going into the lack of graphics / audio): a randomized maze for multiple levels, different types of ennemies, some powerups to go faster / through walls / etc... One thing that I would fix is the collisions with the corners who could be smoothed a bit.

This was nice. Congrats on delivering a full game under 48h.

Could be more challenging, the game is pretty simple but it seems to work well.

Really simple, It needs more content.
also, it wasn't a challenge. The single enemy was too easy to avoid.

It reminded me a lot of Chip's Challenge with the key concept! It would be cool if there were more levels, or additional enemies. I liked the art for the player :)

Pretty simple games but it was fun :)

I like the idea of a maze survival game, but I felt like I spent most of my time simply waiting for the Evil-RedBlock to move. And because the red block wasn't particularly dangerous (slow, relatively predictable, easy to hide from) the game just felt easy.
Good start though! Maybe adding a few more enemies would make the game more tense.

Good work but the game has several bugs. If I touch the "monster", nothing happens and I don´t die. Also, sometime the monster just walks the same route...

A simple Pacmam with a quest. The game would be a lot more fun with sound and more levels.

Nice, simple games. With more complex maze and smarter enemies (so the game plays more like Pacman, but with a twist) it would be pretty solid.

WOW! Really cool. Only has a despicable enemy that sometimes always blocks your path, but other than that, cool!

Dec 17, 2014 @ 5:48pm

Smooth gameplay, nice programmer's art. How does the enemy guy decide where to move? Sometimes it seemed random, sometimes scripted, sometimes he actually seemed to be trying to block me -- pretty effective!

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.
