Developer Notes
Dev Time:Apr 2012 (2 Weeks)
Fav Mechanic:Glass Blocks
Made in two weeks by myself for an "Intro to Flash"-style course. This puzzle game focuses primarily on navigation through hostile environments.
This project forced me to hone my Flash skills and understand the intricacies of grid-based movement in a real-time setting. I also created a level editor to facilitate the surprising amount of content in the game, relative to the project timeline. There are 27 levels spread over four worlds, as well as challenge collectibles and move limits to defeat.
Quick note on those challenge collectibles: in an embarrassing oversight, one of the late-game levels is missing its collectible, rendering the game unable to be 100% completed. The struggles of a student project on a tight timeline, I suppose.
