Wall-holo

by Eldaryze - Jam Entry

Wall-holo is a top-down perspective puzzle game.
You are in a labyrinth and each time you move, the walls move too.
Find the right moves to reach the exit.

On one level to another, all the walls were supposed to rearrange themselves to form the next level in order to stick with the theme. Not exactly what we have been able to do but that's the idea.

Team:
- Alice Contal as Level Designer.
- Dimitri 'ShadowMitia' Belopopsky as Programmer & Sound Designer.
- Matthieu 'Eldaryze' Chardon as Programmer & Graphic Artist.

Music by Robert Del Naja (Track: DT3).

Instructions:
Use the arrow keys to move and press R to respawn if you are stuck.
Reach the red checkpoints to go to the next level.
The green checkpoint is the active checkpoint.
Blue checkpoints are standard checkpoints.

NB: - If you see 'Loading', be patient, the game may need some time to load all the assets.
- Due to some hosting issues, the game may never load if you use the primary link. In this case use the mirror.
- If it still doesn't work, you can download the source and then open 'index.html' in your browser.

It's a great idea. The levels seem kind of randomly desingned. Given more time, though, I'm sure you could be much more clever with the design.

Good job! Could use a little touching up.

There is now a mirror link that should solve this hosting related issue.

Nice work! Really good mood with the music, fun and original gameplay, I wonder how you create all these levels?

It's really unique and fun. I do find the rules of the game a little confusing at times, as I seem to be able to pass through certain blocks at certain times at certain places but not anywhere else. It also looks really nice. Bravo.

@cutandreil: It looks like there is nothing i can do if too many people try to load the game in a short amount of time. But if you don't want to wait, just download the sources and open the index.html file in your browser.

@pandamicro: We used 2 arrays. One as a standard tilemap and another one to specify the patterns fo the blocks. The pattern is described as a string. 'g' means 'gauche' (french for left), 'h' means 'haut' (french for up), 'd' means 'droite' (french for right), 'b' means 'bas' (french for down) and '-' means the block stay in position. So for example 'ddbbgghh' makes a square loop pattern. Don't hesitate to take a look at the source code. ;)

Interesting idea and interesting game. Make better graphic, design of levels and add some music to the background! This can be really good game!

Btw. Check out my project, thank you!

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.
