Shape it

by bog13 - Compo Entry

You are the green box.
To pass a level, you will have to reach the yellow box.
The black tiles are obstacle that you can't move.
The blue tiles are movable obstacles.
To absorbe a blue tile, press the spacebar key.
When you absorbe a blue tile, you can't release it : you have to deals with the new shape of your character.

Eight level are implemented. Feel free to create your own using every image editor you want : levels are in png. You just will have to name it lvl<your-level-number>.png in the assets/level directory. The game load all the level one by one.

<SPACEBAR> Take blue tile.

Enjoy !

Unfortunately I can't play this because I'm on Windows. :(

Sorry to say this, but I'm on Linux and I won't play your game. Making the user download the source, then install dependencies (and also running make himself on windows) is an absolute no-go for a gamejam game that should be easy accessible for a lot of people. C/C++ might not have been a good choice of technology to use here without options to cross-compile.

I really liked the game, because although it was kina lacking in the "innovation" department, it more than made up for that with a rock-solid core-gameplay:
And you can ULTRA-easily create your own levels, how cool is that?
The controls where pretty basic, but nonetheless perfectly functional, and the graphics just showed you all you needed to know about the puzzles.

Cool thing, would love to play more levels!

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 ( 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.
