Salagander

Controls: arrow keys to move and jump, Z to restart a level

Salamanders have a goal: to reach the great pie in the sky. They also have a problem: they’re not that bright and each of them will repeat what the salamander before them did. No matter what.

You control the first salamander who decided to get to the pie. Can you make them behave?

Extra thoughts on the design of the game at this Twitter thread!

Edit: updated new version with jump bound to X as well for controllers. Also you can change your salamander's color by pressing it in the very first level!

I like how much polish you put into this game. The music is great and the game has a lot of personality. Well done!

haha this is amazing, just please please please add an option to switch the jump button to O or X instead of a D-pad direction so that it is playable with a gamepad!!

Great fun!

My one niggle is that I have to use trial and error to understand what the switches do and plan a solution. Am I missing something? If not, and you have sprites and/or tokens free, I'd love it if there was some way of understanding which switches affect which blocks.

alright! added jumping with a button. as far as the switches go, green switches switch green walls and red switches switch red walls

Ah! I see. I'd misunderstood which wall tiles were being switched.

I love the chaotic gameplay. It's such fun.

I'm stuck on the level called "What"... I can't for the life of me work out how to get all of the Salamanders on the same side of the wall at the same time. Can anyone give me a hint?

what a polished game, I love the element of choosing a color at the beggining

P#80131 2020-07-30 16:57

Thanks all!

@dredds here's a hint! you gotta jump across a gap while leaving one salamander behind... but then you'll have to figure out where to position it to solve the puzzle!

I just beat it! I love the charm to it and I was feeling a bit stuck but the little story dialog kept me going : )
PS: I don't want to bug you but in the credits the twitter plug is done with 2 strings I'm assuming (moving and not) and for the non moving one it's "at mrmandolino" but the moving one is " @MrMandolino" so IDK if that's a style choice or whatever : p
