Mini Hero

by sharbelfs - Jam Entry

In Mini Hero we tell the journey of the little boy Ted, trying to make his world better with your imagination, and to tell this history we're using text and puzzles.

Each piece reverses the neighbors in a different way.

-Red changes the Horizontal
-Green changes the Vertical
-Yellow changes the Diagonal
-Blue changes the Cross

Most of the levels you have to complete the board, make all pieces in color, but some you have to left some pieces without pressing. You can check the Help to see with pieces is.

Very nice. I love puzzle games.

Unfortunately, I've had it lock up a couple times. Once, it refused to show the second board at all. The next, it didn't recognize the solution as being finished. I didn't take off points for that, of course, it was just disappointing not to be able to finish the story.

I wish the sound effects were atonal. They really disrupt the music.

That was pretty cool, but the difficulty was pretty low for the first few and then almost impossible... for me at least.

Wow really polished. 3 level was actually quite tricky but this seemed like a finished product. Nice work!

Amazing. This is reminiscent of something Cipher Prime would release.

I love these kind of games. Really good clicking you have going on here. The off keys just hurt my ears but who the hell cares :)

Nice gameplay and very well polished.

It caught me out when the puzzle didn't involved filling the entire board, could do with an indication at the start of each level to show what you're aiming for.

Looks fantastic. I found it really hard to begin with, then realised I wanted to have the squares all full, not all empty :p

Simple to play really, but I had (on Hard) to surrender at the Wizzard level. Apropos levels, it's rare they have a story, or live and breath a story like yours do, big plus for that.

Well polished puzzler and I was absolutely sure you have an iOS and Android port in the making already but then I saw it's flash. Let me know if you need a tiled-block-engine thingy for CoronaSDK, I got one that would be a perfect start for you.

@ananasblau Do you tried the hard level? Hehehehe. We're thinking to port to mobile, but we're trying to use flash to port.

Thanks everybody for the replies. We apreciate it.

Really great puzzle game! Nice story and well designed levels.
The minimal graphic is really effective.

These types of puzzle games aren't my cup of tea, but I completely recognize how well done this game is. Keep up the good work!

Really good combination of narrative and game, good work!

May 2, 2013 @ 11:42pm

Nicely made, i understood the story completely. But your sounds + audio don't mix.

At first I thought the music was full of wrong notes, but those turned out to be the sound effects.

Foxtacy says ...

Thanks for your comment on my entry.

Well about the sounds... it's just that we wanted to use "funky" sounds... but yeah it received a lot of complaints.

On the future versions all the audio will be revised ^ ^

I'm accepting suggestions, you think 8-bit sounds would fit it better?

PS: I'm still to play your entry, i will do it as soon as possible :)

There's harmony everywhere!

It's so cool.

I'd enjoy to keep hearing your tips on how to improve my entry ^_^

Excellent work!

Very nicely polished. I wish the sound effects meshed more with the music. Also, I was never sure what constituted as a 'solution.' Sometimes, things wouldn't be filled in and it would work. Others, you had to fill in the whole thing. I would make with winning condition a little more clear.

May 4, 2013 @ 3:13am

Nice Puzzle!

It's hard because your game is really good but when you play the second piano destroy the canon in C beauty.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
