[GAME] Shot in the Dark — A fun puzzle game with a warm glow aesthetic! 🔥

Adventure through dimly lit passages with only a few glowing torches to help guide you on your way. Encounter shifting walls, tricky puzzles, and mysterious enemies. Enjoy a calming, warm aesthetic with minimalist graphics.

All this and more in my new game, Shot in the Dark!

Shot in the Dark is a puzzle game with one simple rule — you can only move between tiles that have similar colors. So, you can move from a black tile to a dark grey tile, but not from a black tile to a white tile. The complexity arises from the additional challenges added throughout the levels — I won't spoil it all for you, you'll have to play the game to find out!

You can play the game here. All instructions are in-game — but I'll list them here too:

  • WASD or arrow keys to move
  • R to reset level
  • You are the circle, the goal is the square

If you have any suggestions, please give them! This took a long time to make, so I'd really appreciate any feedback!

(Some of the levels may be challenging — but I can assure you, they are all possible!)

I like the concept of this game quite a bit. The overall theme of light in dark definitely adds to the experience. One thing I will mention is that the oscillating tiles are unpredictable, but I guess that adds to the challenge.
Overall, this is a well-made game. Reminds me of Bloxors in a way :)

EDIT: Wait a minute, p5 supports shaders?

@SixBeeps Thanks! (Hmm, the oscillating tiles do follow a pattern, even if it's one with a very long period.)
Thanks! I had never seen Bloxors, I'll look into it!

Yes, it's complicated but p5 does support shaders. I dunno how I would've done this without them honestly.
