Cubelicious

by spazzarama - Compo Entry

Cubelicious - make your way around this rotating cube and see how long you can survive!

My first ever Ludum Dare, hope you enjoy! I had a great time building this and my kids enjoy playing it so that's a win in my books :)

Instructions:
AD / left-right arrow keys, space to jump+double jump
Move about on the title screen to get a feel and then click "Start Game"

UPDATE: fixed bug where sometimes after your first game the physics couldn't work out where you were rotating to and you walked off the edge instead of around the corner.

An interesting take on the theme

I love this one! Only problem is that the player sticks to the walls to easily, annoying when you want to fall down.

Hehe, I often use that to save myself, but yeah some of those exits round the corner get tricky with the stickyness :)

A little dodgy when slamming my face into walls, but otherwise fun!

Cool idea, just wish the physics were more consistent. I'm not sure when I'm allowed to move after getting to a corner, and I managed to tunnel my way into the center of the cube from there.

Really nice idea. Would love to see this explored further. I think you just need to tighten up the platforming controls a bit. Do that and you're onto a winner :)

What a simple, but great idea. Very atmospheric as well.

Wow, this is a really cool game and I found myself being able to be lost in it! Nice work!

Audio and graphics are simple but they set up a great atmosphere. Game is too slow/boring at time though.

Nice game, I like the concept a lot, one of the better games that I have played so far, I have had some problems with getting around the corner whet the cube rotates on the visible Y axis, I end up with my player on a non visible side from the camera.

Sometimes the character is facing the wrong direction. But the game was very fun. Congratulations.

A great foundation! I understood the game the moment the cube started turning. Unfortunately, the corner physics are really glitchy. Like, game-breakingly glitchy. Almost every time I died, I died to the game not detecting that I was going around a corner.

One of the best I've seen today!

Great concept, the design is also pretty nice!

@dallonf I'll see if I can sort it, I believe that kind of fix is allowed after submission.

Fixed the bug where sometimes after your first game the physics couldn't work out where you were rotating to and you walked off the edge instead of around the corner.

Awesome! A bit hard to switch between the sides :) But a great idea and nice execution.

Not bad. But the game has strange physics. Often I fall of te walls.

God job! Loved the gameplay ! the light on the wall sometimes confused me towards a top down game as the world was changing forms... Its a bit away from the theme, but is great nonetheless!

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.
