Orient Ation

by Miltage - Compo Entry

Drag pieces of sushi conveyor belt onto the restaurant floor to get the right plates to the right customers.

Click on pieces to remove them should you misplace them.

I had a lot more planned, but unfortunately, thanks to poor time management, I was only able to complete 3 levels. I'm sure that's enough to get a feel for the game anyway.

Not my best entry, but I feel I learned something through making it.

Very cool classic game ! Love the music
Just, high up the speed of rails, it's too boring to wait sushis reach the last customer...

Some problems with drag and drop but I love the idea and the game is very fun!

Simple but effective. I'd up the speed a little and give it a proper way to restart after messing up. I got stuck in a level after misplacing a piece. One of the clients got the sushi and after pressing the play button again there was some extra sushi messing things up :O

graphics and music were simple and effective. would have been nice to be able to drag pieces from cell to cell on the floor instead of having to click them and then place them again. also would have been fun to have to place the belts while food is rolling out and adapt in real time.

it's quite easy to get stuck though, since the restart button doesn't take food away from customers that got food. next time food rolls out, they won't take it since they're already eating, making the level unbeatable.

Oh man, I completely forgot about resetting food that had already reached customers. Oh well!

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.
