Any Key

by Frostbite - MiniLD 56 Entry

A puzzle platformer'ish game.

Idea inspired by the two challenges; 'only one mechanic' and 'as many mechanics as you can'.
Tried to combine both by having only ONE mechanic active at a time; although I feel there isn't enough mechanics implemented to justify 'many mechanics'.


None the less here's what I made. Enjoy!

PS: Technically uses all keyboard keys but they all do the same thing :D


Controls: (A few extra shortcuts to make it more playable)
AnyKey = Do something.
Esc = Pause/Menu
R = Retry/Suicide

Note: There is a skip level button in the pause menu. If you get stuck please use it.

Challenging and fun! I included it in part 1 of my MiniLD #56 compilation video series if you’d like to take a look :) http://youtu.be/jWjnpf-n1nI

I loved it, even though I had to skip a level.

I like the 'one key' concept and what you managed to do with it! Timing is probably the way to go when working with only one key input, the trial and error fits really good.

AAArgh very frustrating :) i ragequited at " colors "level...
It fits perfectly with themes, i'm amazed how something such simple is such enjoyable. I regret not having worked from a scratch for mine as i see good stuff like that :) very good use of mechanics...

@DinoD123 Thank you. Glad I put that skip button in the pause menu.
I think I made the fall on the colours level too tight, your not the only one who struggled with it :S.
