Reversi

by Rupert - Compo Entry

My first Ludum Dare game!


-About the game
It is a platform pussel game with som inspiration from the board game Reversi or Othello.
A block can be placed on one side of a wall and if there is a block of the same type on the other side of the wall the blocks inbetween will be transformed.


-Controls
Arrow keys to move.

R to restart the current level.

Hold down control to place a block.
While holding down control press the arrow keys to place a block "up", "right" or "left".
Press "down" to switch between diffrent types of blockes.

If the block is red it will not be placed. Only a valid Reversi moves will work.


-Game goal
Get to the flag!


-Note
My friend had problems with the sound when playing the game so here is a version without sound:

Interesting concept, but it crashes every time I press the up key! =(

Played until the end, the last level was HARD! The puzzle difficulty is perfect, that last jump though.. Liked the original combination of reversi with a platformer. The theme reminded me of Supaplex, which is good. Graphics are decent, except for the player character which I didn't like. I encountered a couple of bugs like respawning inside of walls and disappearing ladders. But overall definitely enjoyable!

Thanks for the comments, the Up key crashing the game is because of the sound not working. Don't know what is causing it.

That's a really clever idea for a puzzle game, and well designed levels. Fun.

Good level progression. This is a very cool idea.

-Took a few tries before understanding the puzzle mechanic, but once I got it, it was pretty smooth :|
-Puzzle mechanic has good potential :)
-Difficulty was well balanced :)
-Colliders are too sensitive :(
-SFX a little annoying :(
-Not really a one screen game :(

Loved this. Great concept and really well designed puzzles.
It'd be great to see it extended with more types of blocks, but it still provided a good challenge as it is.
While playing i thought there should have been a penalty for making an invalid move to prevent guesswork, but maybe it's fine without.

Love the idea for this as I was a huge Othello fan as a kid.

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.
