Risky Remap

by

Risky Remap is a game. The goal is to get the green thingies and dodge the red thingies. The journey is harder than you may believe at first. Controls are a tad weird btw...

The game is on GameJolt so download through there (only avaialbe on Windows sorry). If you like it and have an account for GJ don't forgot to follow/rate! :]

Controls UI Graphics
So lets start at when the game booted up. I had no clue how to start the game, eventually i figured out i had to press the space bar. So i moved around with wsda and picked up the green square, after that i got incredibly confused. The confusion probably came from the fact that the letters that make up the new controls are displayed on the screen in the upside down T shape but in reality they are all over the keyboard. I like the concept of the game but take a good look at the !!affordance!! this will make or break the final product. I managed to get a highscore of 6 then after a while all kinds of crazy stuff happened. We were player while the difficulty screen was being displayed and developer options popped up. then this happened:

Ah, I think I see what happened here. I have it setup so when you are on the menu pressing "L" will log you in to GameJolt so you can submit your scores to the leaderboard. I guess that was kind of a stupid way to do it, will make it so you have to click it.

And I completely agree with what you said about the... lack of tutorial/instructions. I'll work on that for sure!

Mechanics UI Graphics
Pros:
- It's a fun and slightly addictive game!
- Controls feel tight
- Unique game idea
- The character graphics are simple but effective

Cons:
- Need to make it clearer which keys are currently mapped. The current method is a bit difficult to read especially when a block is over the letter
- Was unsure how to start the game until I read the other comment
- Enemies are too unpredictable

Thanks for the feedback! :D

I agree with what you said in the cons, the blocks sometimes cover the keys. Maybe make the key render over everything else?
