Avoid the Wall Simulator 2016

by avoidwallcrew - Jam Entry


Avoid the walls, don't blow up


Click or touch a body part, drag it to move it.
Keep your body from touching the walls.
The buttons on the bottom will lock/unlock your legs, use that to your advantage to get past certain obstacles.
Red indicates the leg is locked, green indicates it is not.

Beware, when your legs are unlocked that could mean you fall over.

Note: the speed the body parts move is relative to how far you are dragging from the body part. It could still use a little work.

I think the body part movement when dragging was a little slow, but other than that, this is a solid entry, well done!

Fun game to play, the concept was a good use of the theme.

The game play was a little on the slow side but it was still enjoyable to play.

Awesome idea really! I thought a similar thing with anchors when the theme got announced. Really liked what you did with it. Good job!! :)

This is a really cool concept, but the dragging could be faster. It's also hard to get the character back into a decent position when he's practically fallen over.

It was nice but the body part dragging was a bit sluggish

Good Game. Moving the body parts still feels slightly too difficult.

Body parts felt reallly heavy, but game idea, visuals and overall mood is wonderful

Is it just me, or is one of his feet stapled to the ground. It's impossible to survive one of the walls, because his foot appears to be a static object in space, and can't move where the hole is.

Hard but the physics made me lol, a bit slow to move parts

Good concept, but the implementation seems a bit clunky. Instead of pulling the mouse far to the sides all the time to get more speed on the body part movement I'd preferred it if it were simply faster. Also I couldn't make the character stand up again if I had to make him do the splits. I actually shot the character through the room by accident while trying. I think with more responsiveness, easier control of the character and faster gameplay this would be an awesome game.

I could not pass the third door, It look that I needed to move the char to the side, but I could not do it. The way you used the theme was interesting.

The controls where a little counter-intuitive and slow and the music is too loud. Apart from that, it's a fantastic submission

Hehe, I love the concept, and especially love the music! The graphics are great, and it's definitely remarkable that you've made a jam game that supports mobile. The controls do feel a little stiff, but other than that it's great. Overall, great job!

A nice take on the theme and a fun game. As others have said, moving the body parts can be a bit frustrating.

the overall is ok but its hard to play it with the mouse, must be better on android :)

I like the biomechanical model! Great fun 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 ( 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.
