I'm sad to say that exception is thrown which prevents me from playing
Maybe you can fix that and call me to play your game later? :)

Dec 14, 2016 @ 5:05pm

what exception? Did you encounter it on the web version? Maybe try the windows or play directly using LOVE2D, it takes 5 seconds to install and its free :)

Dec 14, 2016 @ 5:09pm

The "PLAY" button doesn't work. I have written the code, but nothing happens if I press PLAY.

Its a problem with the web version. Press ctrl+enter to start the code, but we are fixing it this problem right now!
Btw, the win and .love version are more stable and with fewer bugs, if you can, please try to play those versions :D

An interesting title, a good example of a programming/turtle game. Enjoyed the humour especially.

Nice project you got there, easy to understand how to play, but those robots walk very slow, I guess making them move faster would make experience way more nicer. Good work! ;)

Nice game! The "robot" could walk a little faster though.

rilifon says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 5:30pm

You can make the robot walk faster with those two buttons right next to the play button! There is a "go fast" and a "go very fast" button

Interesting game.

Very cool game, especially the emails. Good writing, and a nice touch to send followup emails when you fail.

Really a nice entry
At the beginning i was a little stuck on the code.. until I recived dozens of mails.
Then the gameplay became smooth and enhjoyable.
Well done

Well made game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Completed the game, loved it. The fact that you managed to get this working during a game-jam is very impressive, I can especially appreciate it as a programmer :). I really think there is something in there.

Cool little idea, I like the interface, seems like it could be a cool tool for teaching kids logic puzzles etc.
