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

Hyper Wall

by SinclairStrange - Jam Entry

Yay, I can't believe I actually finished a jam! There is a first time for everything I guess!

So, basically the whole game is on one 448x448 screen. You need avoid the walls, using your mouse, the longer you survive, the harder it gets.

Please excuse any bugs/glitches that might have slipped the net. I'm tired and I've been extremely busy to try and get this finished!

I hope you like the little game, log in on newgrounds to unlock medals and upload your high score! :D

Can't wait to play everyone else games! But for now, it's time for a well earned beer.

A solid entry, love the music. A little bit too much trial and error in my taste but it gets challenging in an interesting way after few fails.
It would be awesome if the speed of progress toward higher difficulty would depend on a secondary goal so it wouldn't feel like starting from 0.

Cheers, well done

Very well done!
Graphics and music are cool, and fit together really well.

It gets really hard really fast, but you can only blame yourself because the control is solid

Man, Dat Music.

Yeah, this is great. You should totally allow voting for mood, this game had mood.

Very addictive feel. I'd like keyboard controls too.

I absolutely love this game! Can I have a local version (for OSX) please to keep and play forever?

Nice visual design choices and use of music....reminds me a little of mine actually! haha

But your's is longer and honestly a little more fun, can't get enough of those double wall patterns, those are my fav

A really solid entry, you deserve more comments, and votes;
Some ideas because the game is great :
- use the background particule to indicate the next orientation of the walls, it will allow you to make them com faster and avoid some waiting
- a more progressive difficulties, i have seen sometimes some "corner" walls who are just impossible, and it was the third walls.
- put it on mobile, it totally fits and could be a real hit
- make some moving on the side walls, to create an other level of difficulty.

A really fun and simple game, it's not tricky with the theme but that works.

What engine did you use?

;)

And now go to post compo. :)

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.
