X: Shoot / Back
ESC: Close game
F2: Return to main menu
Squares and Triangles is a challenging platformer in which you play as Alex, a villager from Square Village, who's girlfriend was stolen by the residents of Triangle tower during the conflict between the two civilizations. Armed with a gun, and the ability to double jump, your goal is to get her back. however, as this is a demo, and the game is unfinished this is slightly impossible :( . As you progress through the game you will find different guns, upgrades, and keys, which will allow you to progress into different areas that you couldn't before, and you will be able to teleport between areas using warp points (currently not added)
The current downloadable version ends very abruptly (i.e. a block with "END" written on blocking progress - sorry about that :3) and almost all graphics / music are temporary, due to being either absolute garbage, copyrighted, or a pre-bought sprite (this only being the case with the "slightly miffed bee" boss)
Criticism is greatly appreciated, and will in most cases be improved on. (I will not make the game easier, or change / remove mechanics currently in the game, but i may consider adding new ones based on suggestions.)
I would specifically like to know a few things: Do you like the game? Should spikes instantly kill the player regardless of whether or not they have a bail card from the very start, or should i keep the sudden rule change? Was the explanation of how to wall jump sufficient, and if not, how could i explain it better?
Also, i feel like i should stress that i cannot improve graphics or music without money, so please consider paying the suggested £1 or higher, however, it is not required.
