Teleporting Room

by SkyWolf - Compo Entry

Changelog (post Compo end):
- Nothing

--------------------

Known Bugs / Notes:
- In rare cases the game struggles to let you perform the first swap

--------------------

Lore:
You're confined in a room, there is no way out, the only thing that you can move is the room itself by swapping it with an adjacent one! You will just need to swap your room with the "final room", to get out of there.
The rooms you will have adjacent to your room after a swap, will determine your power and enemy power!

--------------------

Info:
Hello guys, it's SkyWolf.
I'm back after a lot of time, i've been missing you all! Although i didn't have all 48 hours to spare, i needed to partecipate and so i jumped in! Given the time restriction the game was cut in a myriad of places (tutorial included) and the code is a messy mess. I beg forgiveness.

You can find me on Twitter @akaSkyWolf, follow me if you care.
Also I higly encourage feedback and insults. Tell me how much my game sucked, folks.

Have fun everybody and keep jammin'!

PS: Mac and Linux builds aren't tested, please confirm if they work or not. Thanks a lot.

--------------------

Controls:
WASD or Arrow Keys to move
Mouse to shoot

PS: Given the fact that i couldn't complete the tutorial in-game, i made some screenshots and tried to explain the gameplay that way, I'm sorry!

Cube meets Dual Stick shooter. Me gusta!

Really interesting colour mechanic and use of the colour wheel to map progress.

A bit difficult to play with a trackpad. Sound would have been a nice plus. :)

Love the greyed-out tutorial button, will steal that idea for my own stuff :D

The high-level colour mechanic is interesting, but I couldn't really get it to work to my advantage.

Sick game!
Cool concept, altough the gameplay is kind of one dimensional. Maybe making the bullets more "alive" maybe make them go along a bezier curve to make the game more difficult!
Other than that good job!

I like the concept but I would like to have feedback everytime I hit ennemies !

Really missed some visual feedback when I get hit or I hit an enemy. Room swapping mechanic is interesting, but doesn't live up to much - I had no idea what different colors would do. Otherwise the game is alright, had some fun trying to survive past room 3!

By the way, works on linux just fine.

Seems like a good idea but the execution fails it a little (Time issues I suppose)

More game feel and better explained color-changing mechanic is needed

Took me a while to understand, but after reading again the instructions here, it become more clear. Very good and fun game, great job!

Ingenious concept, but it is lacking some polishing to take advantage of it. Score counter would be also helpful;)

Could use a bit more of a gradual difficulty curve, it's a real grind to even get out of the first room. I'm not sure if it's something I didn't understand about the instructions, but the color doesn't seem to have much effect.

the game idea is nice!
would like to see tutorials and some sounds in-game

also, very useful to add some feedback for shoting, take damage, etc.

there is a lot of work done, i'm enjoyed the game!

I'm not sure if I didn't understand the game fully or is this just too hard for me :/
