Level Designer

by munchor - Compo Entry

Consider yourself a worthy level designer?

I challenge you to design your own levels and play them yourself in just a few seconds, all in one screen.

The game consists in placing blocks on the screen to then play through them as a snowman.


# INSTRUCTIONS
Simply left click to place blocks and then either use all blocks or press S to start controlling the snowman using the arrow keys.
Make it from the start point to the end portal to finish the level!

Sound effects are annoying but otherwise great. I though the "it floats if its the last one" thing was a bug, but I guess it wasn't :P

Damn snowman can barely jump. Nice job with the game!

Clever idea. Controls are a bit floaty (especially considering we're trying to jump across lava) but I like the freedom in which you can place the blocks.

I must agree with the sounds being annoying.

Cool concept and challenging game. The graphics are a little poor a jump is a bit weird, i don't know if it is intentional

I really like the idea, but the movement is too slippery and hard to control. It would be nice to see / pick what blocks are available so you can plan where to put them, as it seems a bit random.

Pretty cool, but the movement controls are very difficult.

very cool idea to make people creat ther own games/levels :)
but it need some work.
jumping is a little weird. it looks like i can jump higher when the snowman moves faster. Don#t know it's hard to explain. And one time i got stuck between two block which where lay diagonal. I gues the game thought that I was still in the air. because i couldn't jump.

Fun concept! The random blocks of random size is quite annoying though, it's really hard to plan ahead. About the mentioned last block that also made it feel quite random overall. Otherwise nice game! I wonder if you considered having physics running while you're jumping also?

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.
