Xorb: Redlight

Share Collapse

Author Comments

We are in a technology oriented world. In 2030, Xorb is a newly discovered way of transmitting data using light.

Its most powerful ability is creating physical objects out of thin air and could destroyed with zero waste. But its power could be deadly if fallen to the wrong hands.

We have just been hacked by the Zilandrones and they're attempting to steal our xorbs.

By harnessing the power of the xorbs, we need to defeat the Zilandrones before it's too late.


This is my first HTML5 game, or any game for that matter. I have absolutely no idea how involved this process is until finally tackling this project. This is my attempt to bring my favorite match-3 puzzle game into an arcade battle.

There's so much I still want to do, but I just have to stop milking it and let you guys tell me what you think of this. This is still a work in progress though.

Please bring your own music as I haven't found any decent sound effects and BG music. ;)


And a good pair of wrist


It's vertical because I'm making this for mobile.

There might be some bugs during battle gameplay where the projectiles are not flying, or you're not making any matches. Currently looking to fix this, but in the mean time you can just keep swapping and the game will still continue.

I'm not sure if I'm just a slow thinker, but I think this game expects way too much when it comes to how fast you can do this, to the point where each game lasts no more than forty five seconds for me. Did anybody even test this out before it was done?
