Shapes of Life

by TheAxe - Mini LD 48 Entry

This is my first Ludum Dare entry ever.

I decided that this weekend it was time to finally participate.
unfortunately I had only limited time this weekend (due to personal stuff happening)

Anyway, I decided that I would upload a game some way or another.

And so I present "Shapes of Life".

The story resolves around 2 distinct shapes (circle and square). They fall into a dungeon and have to get out.

There is a portal that leads outside but I can only carry 1 shape, so someone has to stay behind.

The game is multiplayer on a single keyboard.
Square controls:
A and D to move left and right.
Space bar to jump
Special ability: can jump through blocks but dies when touching a spike

Circle controls:
Left and right arrow to move left and right.
Enter to jump.
Special ability: can't be harmed through spikes

Really really like the vibe going on here. Music is outstanding. Except for that crazy organ part. Keep it mellow, much more awesome. Would also recommend visually showing the controls/instructions on the instruction screen. Would help a little bit cause people don't read.

Hey, I really like the idea. I think the controls deserve some extra work though. It would be nice to design levels so that the player would actually be forced to cooperate to get pas some points.

I would have done the platforms bigger (one tile jumping is annoying) but I like the choice in this game
