Room of Doom

by limered - Jam Entry

Edit:
We fixed some error/bugs. Original Submission (windows) ist still under itch.io together with the updated versions.
Bugs fixed: 1. You can no longer drop through the ground. 2. WebGl lighting issues

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

Hello,

Download the windows version; It has better lighting, than webGL!

thank you for playing our awesome game. We were two programmers from germany. Our idea for this was born in a washing machine. Don't get dizzy!

Control:
wasd movement
Mouse 1 activates wall
E to start
R to reset room of doom, if something goes wron during rotation
M to mute music

How to play:
Kill the monsters with gravity before they eat you! The wall you currently looking on will be red, click to turn the gravity in the room of doom to the direction of the marked wall. If a monster falls on it's red softspot, it dies.

Super great idea, but it bit difficult to play. Graphics and musics is really good. Overall well done.

Fun but disorientating, kinda bugged out though when I died as I fell through the level.

I really like the idea! It's difficult to play however.

I think you should continue working on this and implement multiplayer or local multiplayer! Playing a dodging game with friends like this would be a ton of fun!

Great job :)

Really cool game mechanic, I love how fast paced it is. I get it's supposed to be dark but perhaps brighten it a little bit or change the colour of the enemies so they are a bit more visible. Otherwise, with some more enemy types and maybe some special abilities or something, I could see myself playing a lot of this game! :)

Nice idea, but gameplay actually needs to be balanced. For example you could just click Mouse 1 non-stop so monsters can't hit you :)

It's fun to play with, but I had no idea what was the condition for the monsters to die, so I wasn't able to perform better. Nice overall job!

Great use of theme. Well done. Sometimes I felt disoriented. Weird ++

I just jump on one monster end wait for time counter to increment)

Interesting idea but I almost instantly found a way to pretty much play for as long as you want: just go in one direction and keep changing the gravity. However if you stop something usually bugs out and enemies will get you. If you will continue to develop this you should find a way to discourage such player behavior!

Nice idea. It was easy to dodge the enemies, just keep changing the gravity.
