2018 - Game 11 - The Link Janitor
  25th June, 2018


Link up for a happy robot!

-=-=-

The Brief


The links are all broken, but don't worry, because The Link Janitor is here to fix it all up.

Guide the Janitor around the maze, connecting the coloured blocks.
Tap once you're on a coloured block, then trail a link to the opposing block.
Rinse and Repeat!

You can Download The Link Janitor here for Windows, Linux, MacOS and as 3DS Homebrew.



The Controls


- Move
- Activate Link Mode (Can also be used to remove a link, should it be too troublesome)
- Retry Level

How Not To Lose


You can't die, but you might occasionally find yourself trapped in a small enclosed area.
If there's no way to disable a link, you'll need to hit the Retry button instead.

What I Didn't Do


I haven't added any undo functionality. Things got a little chaotic within the grid array!!
I also didn't add baddies. Originally, I'd planned to have the links be electrified, and have little roaming bugs that get shocked by complete links. But then, I also originally planned maps that were twice the size.
In the end, the level generator was making much better, but smaller and more compressed levels, that I ended up going for that option instead.
