Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

He took my job away

by d_0o_d - Compo Entry

Oh no! The computer took your job away!
It appears, that he is in the one room, that controls the entire building.
Quick, destroy the computer to save the day.
You will receive damage over time, as the computer leaked some gas into the system.


Controls:

[A],[D]: Move left / right
[Space]: Jump
[LSHIFT]: Run
[Left mouse]: Pick up furniture
[Right mouse]: Throw furniture


Sidenote: I would have loved to put some sound in there, but time didn't allow it, so just throw in some Hard rock or whatever floats your boat.
Also, I'm gonna rename the binaries tomorrow.

Simple and engaging concept. I like the backstory, and I also liked how you made the portal teleport around to make it more challenging. Nice work on the game!

It's a bit hard to understand what to do in the beginning, but once you understand how it works, it's a nice game. It can be hard to throw in the blue portal in the bottom level though

I didn't manage to get anywhere, sorry. There's portals, and there's throwing stuff, but I can't get anything interesting to happen.

I have to say that I didn`t expect to have sooo much fun playing this.

Cons:
-Takes some time to understand
-Sometimes I had hard time picking up the furniture (the table with lamp on it)
-It took me time to realize that I can move from room to room. Maybe it would be better if you made stairs/elevators.

Pros:
-Had a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it
-Game is challenging ( I played 4 times and still could not finish it)
-Throwing objects feels really good
-Love the art

I really miss soundeffects in this for some reason. I think It would feel 200% better. Try BFXR next time. It`s online and it`s really fast :)

Thank you for making this!

Hey, nice! 2/5 for graphics because you stole the font from Minecraft.

It took me a little while to understand how to damage the computer. I did notice the blue portals, but I thought I wasn't able to throw anything at it at first, because they're so high up. After a while I managed though and then it became quite fun :)

It's a real shame this game doesn't have any audio, because I think that could really make it quite a complete experience. Even just a few sound effects could improve it quite a bit I think, because it's otherwise quite complete.

Congrats on the zoom effect at the start by the way, I thought that was a pretty cool way to start the game.

Hey, really nice game, I had a lot of fun playing it ! Gameplay ideas are nice, throwing things at this computer is really rewarding. I also like the way you make use of the theme, elegant and creative.
The only problem is understanding how to damage the computer. It takes some time, but when you find the way it's really fun :D
Really good job !

Took a bit to figure out what's the deal with the game, but once I understood everything, the game felt quite challenging! :) Kinda hard to throw stuff, not because of controls, but because of floor navigation, but the concept's pretty fun!

Visuals look pretty nice, the tetris pieces textures are a nice little touch, but I miss audio. I'm sure it would've added a lot in terms of mood and humor. :P

Cheers and congrats! :)
