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

by Ghust1995 - Jam Entry

The objective of the game is to program your bot and build a level so he can get to the top!


Press Q/W to move between possible block colors, press left mouse button to add a new block of the selected color, and right mouse button to delete blocks.

Press E to enter the text editor and edit the bot's code.

Language reference:

nop: no operation (sleeps for the tick time)
jump: makes the bot jump (if grounded)
turn: turns the bot around
cmp [what] [value]: compares what to the value passed, setting the robots internal flag if the comparison is true, what can be either:
scan: with possible values (r, g, b, w). Compares the value of the bot's scanner to the value. (if no value passed, compares if the scanner is reading something).
mdir: with possible values (r, l). Compares the moving direction of the bot.
jmp [line]: jumps to the specified line of code
jf [line]: jumps to the specified line of code if the flag is set to true
jnf [line]: jumps to the specified line of code if the flag is set to false
clf: sets the value of the flag to false
Good Luck!

A very tough idea to tackle in a jam game, and kudos for implementing it in time! However, the lack of different challenges unfortunately didn't do the mechanics justice. I would have liked to play it as a puzzle game where you have to plan out a solution

I love the idea! too bad there was only one level to complete. Took me some time to figure out i had to press 'space' to execute the program. The editor worked nicely. Like WeaverDeveloper said, i'd love some more challanges! Well done! :)

Concept is very cool, but even with instructions it's pretty hard to understand how to do get to the exit.

I love this idea! I would love to play a larger scope game controlled like this. Please continue to develop this! I want to play more!
