Heavy Lifter

by ReactorScram - Mini LD 57 Entry

You are a space alien. You must use your heavy-lifting spacecraft to dismantle and move
the Violet Crystal temple which was built by humans thousands of years ago. (Nobody knows how)

Hit spacebar to grab a piece of the temple, then use A, D, Left, or Right to move it.
You can drop a temple piece on the ground, or on any lower piece of the temple.
When you have moved the entire temple all the way to the right, you win,
and your score will be printed to the terminal.

(This is a clone of Tower of Hanoi)

I really wanted to play this game but upon clicking on the .exe it just auto closes for me. What am I doing wrong?

Jupiter, which file are you opening? You want to run HeavyLifter.bat.

Jupiter, I'm not sure what the problem could be, it runs fine on here.

Did you extract the zip first?

I noticed the bat file might have Unix line endings but it should still work.

You can try pasting this into the bat file, replacing what's in there:

bin\luajit.exe bin/boot.lua

Or maybe "bin\boot.lua", but they both seem to work fine here.
