Tetropica

by Yrasin - Compo Entry

Hello! My name is Yrasin!

I didn't know if i where to code this ludum, but i decided very late to participate. I have worked the last 7 hours to make this rather simple game.

The name of the Game is Tetropica and is a mixup of like bomberman/tetris.

CONTROLS:

You move with W,A,S,D or arrow keys. You dig blocks with SPACE.

HOW TO WIN:

You will have to solve the level using tetris-blocks and try to go to the top of the map. You get little score by digging blocks, but you get huge points for completing the level by going to the top. The maps get progressively harder, but also rewards you with more points! Try to get as much points as possible!

Cool game, I really like the mechanic behind it! Very satisfying picking a path through the level, and nice difficulty curve too.

Nice working game with a great idea. The sound loop got a bit annoying though.

Great concept! I just wish I had more time. Maybe a puzzle mode where you get infinite time, just a certain number of pieces?

I like the idea, I've never seen something like this before.

Nice idea - I can see this becoming addicting with more flare

Interesting new take on a classic arcade game. The grid seams a bit big though, the game is now about speed-clicking rather than though and prediction. Lots of potential though!

Simple and fun puzzle game. Great way to use Tetris blocks. I kept wanted to rotate blocks but that would probably make it too easy.

Great idea, new use of Tetris blocks is always a win.

A very smart concept! The game plays nice but sometimes I don't know what piece I'm hold at the moment. Also, it would be nice if you could rotate the pieces.
An excellent job for such a short time!

Really good idea, I loved it. I did get completely stuck at the start of one level being unable to find a place to dig through for my first shape.

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.
