Serendipity with Cubes - angelk - 48 Hour Compo Entry
Serendipity with Cubes is a puzzle solving game!
Running The Game:
Simply unzip it to wherever and run game.exe (or game_BUGFIX.exe if you don't want the game to crash :)
NOTE that you'll need the latest DirectX runtime installed! Most gamers have this already, but if you get the error "The program can't start because d3dx9_43.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." you'll need to install it. It's available here:
*Connect the two pulsating cubes with a path of same-color cubes
*Click on a cube to select it, and an adjacent cube to swap their colors
*The goal is to remove all the colored cubes
*When a path is connected, all connected cubes of the same color will be cleared
*If any cubes become stranded, never to be connected, the game is over
"Tiny World" brought to mind the idea of how small the world is, bringing people together. Then I thought about the game "ticket to ride". Then I thought about cubes. Then algorithms. Then I started coding.
