FallingShapes

by Red15 - Compo Entry

​A simple puzzle game, imagine a mix between DDR and AudioSurf.

The difficulty scaling is a bit whack and didn't have time to implement actual music and beat matching so I decided to not put any music in.

NOTE: Web version has some graphical issues, make sure to play fullscreen

Controls:

A/D moves left right
Left/Up/Right arrow keys change shape and press Down when your shape is inside the wall.

Alternate keys are 1/2/3 for shapes and space for capturing.

Xbox/PS3 gamepad supported

Made in UnrealEngine 4.11.1

I have the same issue and I tried it in chrome and firefox. But the windows version works great.

The games idea is great, but the graphics part could have been better.

Nice idea! I think the perspective could be adjusted a bit to make it easier to see the shapes.

Keyboard doesn't work in ludum dare's web player but they work in the web link. Neat idea, not sure what the different lanes do. Seems like you can just avoid the walls. Hard to see the player shape. Could be a little harder. 1 or 2 sounds feel kinda barren but nice that they're there. Score and combo don't seem to do anything?

Hey,

It seems the down key didn't work for me (web osx). I had fun dodging and going through the obstacles, but because I couldn't capture anything, there wasn't really any sense of progression.

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.
