A downloadable game for Windows

Title

Self Programming Bot


Description

Solve puzzles by rearranging the way you solve puzzles.

Game created for the GMTK Game Jam


How this game matches the jam's theme

The jam is about the ideas discussed in this video: 

In this game, I explore what happens if the player is given the options of assigning the actions to the keys as a way of solving puzzles. As the games progresses the player will have to come up with different ideas of combining multiple actions to keys in order to solve the puzzles.


Platforms and specs

The game has been tested on Windows 10 64-bit, but expected to work on Windows Vista and up, 32 bits.

I suggest that you have an okay graphics card to play the game, but since it is not action oriented, you will probably have a good time even if playing the game with bad performance.

Super neat idea and the puzzles were perfectly challenging. I got stuck for a loong time on level 3 until I found the solution, maybe introducing diagonal movement, especially "through walls", could be introduced in a more straight-forward way before this level? Figuring out the last few levels was satisfying.

Nice work overall!

Thanks so much for your comment!

Yeah, the third level kind of required an "epiphany"... hahaha

Maybe the forth level should come first? (Since it is more evident the diagonal movement? :)
