Split and combine to reach the end!
Description / This was made for GMTK Jam 2021 but I wasn’t able to finish in time – life got in the way – so I decided to finish it in my spare time!
In this game, you are trying to reach the goal by jumping between platforms and avoiding all the red objects. By touching a green object, you can split in two or combine into a single being. When you have split into two beings, the left and right being are mirrored (meaning if you move left with the left being, the right will move right).
- Arrows to move left or right
- Space to jump
- Touch the green object to split or combine
- Touch the yellow object to finish the level
- Avoid red objects or you restart the level
Inspiration / To be honest, I’m not quite sure where the inspiration for this game came from. This was the first thing I thought of when I heard the theme for the game jam so I thought I should explore that concept. It seemed like it would lead to some fun game mechanics.
Problems / I set the camera too close to the platforms so this made it so that I could include less than I wanted to in the level. I originally imagined having platforms 4 or 5 wide to each side but this was not possible because of the camera angle. Were this not a game created ostensibly for a game jam, I might readjust things but I did not have the time to dedicate to it, so I left it as it was.
