ShiftCube

by Phask - Compo Entry

This game is about correctly matching shifting shapes to the cube in time.

But Beware:
- Shapes shift faster over time!
- Also watch your Shape balance: if it drops below 0 it's game over! (+1 correct match, -1 wrong/missed match)

Use the arrow keys to rotate the cube ([left] and [right]) and match the shapes ([up]).

- Collect Shapes
- Set a highscore
- Buy upgrades with Shapes in the shop
- Beat your highscore

Enjoy! -Phask

Tiny cool game with great looking light effects. Missed something like a reset button, which takes me to the shop instead of having to wait for the points to drop below zero (when the shifting happens so fast that I cannot match anything anyway). Nevertheless, really great entry

The game idea is great and I had fun playing it.
I would love to have a game menu from where I can access the shop or restart the game. The animations are well done.

enjoyed it, the shop was a nice touch and definitely made me stick around longer then i would have. That said some of the upgrade where a bit confusing and seemed less interesting some of the others. Great entry non the less :)

That's a really fun little game, well presented and tight controls. How many times did you record the "awww" sample? :D

Really simple but pretty effective! I had a pretty good time playing this.

Solid entry! Enjoyed playing this the first couple tries, but didn't see much point in upgrading/continuing.

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.
