Flower Power Sprint

by OnePixelMonster - Jam Entry

Flower Power Sprint is a groovy Endless Runner just for you man! The twist; you must morph the hero so that his/her color matches the floor!

This is game can be played with the keyboard: use WASD to change color, space to jump) BUT you should really use an X360 controller instead: the floor colors match those of the A,B,X and Y buttons, use L1 to jump. So if the ground is blue, press X on the controller or (A on the keyboard), etc...

I only had about 25 hours of free time to work on this (you know, because of "the man") but i'm mostly happy with the end result. I used Unity (HTML5), bfxr and Photoshop. Expect bugs! Man... I never noticed how big my hands are before...

The Windows build is for win32.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
9:10pm Arg! Just noticed I uploaded the wrong build... fixing now...
9:22pm Arg again! Muted all sounds while working on it... Forgot to turn sounds back on. Dammit. Fixing!
9:31pm All Done! Chill time! I'ma gonna talk to a tree or something.
9:39pm That tree is NO FUN; zero reaction, like i'm not even there.

I like the parallax scrolling!

Trees are bad, man. Always being total butts just because they're taller than you. Bushes are much friendlier. Usually.

Nice game. Quite zen. Floors being much paler than the buttons was confusing at first, but you get used to it after a couple deaths.

Good job!

Looks cool! The colors are a little bit hard to tell apart at first (orange and red) but it's a small problem. I wish that you wouldn't take damage when not switching perfectly at the color edges.

easy to play, though not really hitting the theme. the floor colors are also a little bit difficult to determine that the start

7400! Thanks for a great game!

I had a little problem matching the floor to the color of 'The Man' at first (the yellow man looked like the green floor).

It needs more polishing but it's cute to play!

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.
