This is my entry for the secret Santa 2018.

My recipient for my first secret Santa here was Drambique.
I tried to implement most of the wishlist and i think i managed to do most of them except one.
It was a fun experience and the list had some interesting combinations which led to the game's main mechanic of swapping the level colors.

this event also was a good opportunity to try some new game development tools. (raylib and go).

The game is a bit short, but I hope it serves as inspiration for something in your games.
Have fun!

Controls:

  • Movement: Arrow keys
  • Jump: Space
  • Swap: E
  • Dash: Hold direction when Swapping

This happened to me to and I

This happened to me to and I thought it was neat. Kinda like fonts that get you to assume the negative space is the letters themselves. I was focused on that bullseye by the time I finished. Everything else was malleable.

looks great

The mechanics of this are so interesting! I love how I have to maneuver the color changes, but I'm so so bad at it. The music is really helpful at keeping me calm while I fail though!! It's really great to look at, too.

Superb tiny puzzle

Superb tiny puzzle platformer! I had to look over the description again to figure out how to clear the last level (i.e. dashing) after which I replayed the whole thing again. Dashing feels so satisfying!

Neat little game! I liked

Neat little game! I liked the midair dashing. There's also something amusingly awkward about dropping yourself into a pit by accident when you switch the colors.

I had an idea of changing

I had an idea of changing negative positive space years ago in a scratch mit edu game (no idea is original perhaps... including mine) but I could not think of how the swapping could work for the player character... and you found a solution!

I was also impressed with

I was also impressed with this problem being solved with the tunnel. It leads to some interesting solutions as well!

That was cool! My laptop

That was cool! My laptop resolution is pitifully small - I got stuck on the second level and didn't realize what I was supposed to do, read the comment about targets, maximized the window to fit my screen, and only then saw the entire level haha.
