"Yes, that is supposed to happen."

This was done for the Newgrounds Game Jam #2. We had 72 hours to make a game.
Taking the path less traveled (like really less traveled) our programmer, HiddenSpartan, did some funky stuff and that explains the game. This technically is a massive feat of programming because to create what we had here, HiddenSpartan created a level editor, a character editor and the whole engine from scratch to get us to what we have now. He added "quantum boxes" last minute for a little added fun.

We'll eventually use this a jumping point to create a far more complex RPG game. Hopefully you enjoy.

for 72 hours. not bad. the physics where a bit odd, and if you hang around too long the music stops.... (i wanted to get a soda) overall, not too bad. if you (the programmer) are looking to go back and make improvements, i recommend a random map generator, so the mazes are different every time. a few "power ups" like a zoomed out view or a speed boost would be nice. finally, possibly a few "foes" some mobile and others just blocking a path. spices things up a bit.

it's good but....

it's very easy i finish't this a few times in less then a minute

Yeah, I was worried the maze as too hard due to it's size, so the fact that a lot of people are completing it is a good sign.
Thanks for the review :D

Not a bad game

Well there are some things you could improve on. But the first thing I want to know were what those white rectangles were? First I thought I had to hit them to either beat the game or to unlock some sort of path way. After I beat the game I see that these rectangles have no use. I thought they would be a path leading to the exit but on my way there I really did not see as much as other paths had. Well also think the maze itself could of been harder itself since it takes a minute at most to beat it. Maybe add different levels (Without those random rectangles) or just make a difficulty setting making the maze longer and more complicated the higher the difficulty. But I must admit the music was good. It fits the maze genre. Well good try at making a maze game, since it you did make it in 72 hours its pretty good. Though there is much room for improvement.

The rectangles are useless and don't represent anything.
The game is hardly complete in my opinion, and next time there will be something far better than what we have here.

Great music, the game is a bit short but i like it :) keep the good work.

Good but...

Needs more to it

HiddenSpartan responds:

I agree!
