I made a smol puzzle game about looping.

Arrow Keys=move
Z/C/M=palette change

Some neat puzzles here. However, I had some trouble remembering which key type in my inventory opened which door. Would it be possible to:

  1. Make the keys and doors more obviously match each other, such as by putting a diagonal stripe on the door that is opened with the diagonal key, and
  2. Draw the key symbol next to the count for the number of keys of that type?

My first time through the game:

Only on the last level did I realise that:

The ability to loop around the level into a wall is an intentional part of the design. I know this is also necessary on the third level, but the first time I played that level I completed it by accident and wasn't sure if the solution I found was the only solution.

Thanks, @Cowirrie, for again playing my one of my games. I should have kept that in mind earlier. I will fix that memorising issue and update the game once more.

The last level was supposed to be a troll level, as I expected the player to not know that there are two pixels on the door, and I suspect that I did troll you 😏.

Again, thanks for playing my game!

@Cowirrie, I updated the game!

@D3V? : Thank you, with those changes I felt able to read the screen and plan out my puzzle solutions.

One problem: I don't believe I needed any retries, but it seems to have counted each new level as a retry.

Looking at the source code, there seem to be two different places that might detect a new level: loop() and trig_bump(). Both call retry(), which increments p_retries. In loop(), p_retries is immediately decremented again. In trig_bump() there is no change to p_retries().

The loop() function looks like an early part of the program which may not even have any effect any more. Is it even needed? But it's probably in trig_bump() and the way it calls retry() that you want to make changes.

Anyway, thnak you for listening and iterating on your design.
