Figure It Out

by Kiwiboi - Compo Entry

We made it!!
---------------

In Figure It Out you control a shape that can take form of a square, circle or triangle. There are enemies incoming, with those same figures. You need to make sure you are the matching one when they hit you or it's all over!!

Tools:
Unity
Jukedeck for the music!

Controls:
Use the Left and Right arrow keys to change shape.

---------------

I actually finished this in time! Being a simple game with simple graphics made it possible even though I started Saturday evening. I made this with mobile in mind, so I'll be thankful for thoughts and criticism. A few improvements I'll do: a more alive background (details and movement), music and more sounds, effects when scoring points, and some other things.

Stay updated on my twitter!

I can only get to 780 lol
I reall wish you didn't have to press a key twice to get to the opposite shape. SImple, yet entertaining, nice work!

@monkeybit29
You don't! If you change to one, you have the other two on the left and right arrowkeys :)
But I get into the habbit of doing that as well, cheers!

Simple but awesome! This is the kind of game I enjoy playing from a game jam.

Fun and simple game, it works very well. Could be cool to implement waves of enemies instead of single random ones. It would add kind of a rythm-game element to the mix :)
Sounds and more art work would be great too. Good job anyway! :)

Nice gameplay and a good style. Weirdly, I could only get the input to work in fullscreen...

Good game! it was a surprise. It lacks an indication of which shape will appear with each button when the game gets faster.

Fun little game...it's like a timed Rock Paper Scissors matching game. The music went really well with it. Very fun!

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
