Switcheroo

Switcheroo is a new puzzle game I made in VScode!! It's also my first game post in a long time...

About

I made this game using nothing but google fonts and font awesome!! I really like how the usage of icons has really shaped this game. I'll explore more into later games ;) I also really like the transitions :D

One of my better projects, I really liked how dynamic this was!

How to play

Your goal is to make all the squares green. Click on a square to invert its whole row and column.

Can you solve this puzzle in only one move?
Answer: If you said row 1 column 4, you are correct! Because the whole row and column is inverted, the red L vanishes!

Hints

Some levels are a bit hard, so I will drop in some hints. The notation is (x,y). It denotes the position of the square to click on. Note: The puzzle doesn't get solved! It gets you to a state where you can hopefully figure it out on your own.
ONLY DO THESE WHEN YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE

35(1,1)

Strategy

The trick is to click on all the tiles that are red at the very beginning. Then after you've clicked all those, repeat. Works every time ;)

Challenges

  • What is the minimum move count? I predicted 216 but @maxyang proved me wrong!
  • What is the maximum amount of permutations of a 2x2 square? 3x3? 6x6?

My low score is 800! Can you beat me?

btw cactus already beat me :(

@LTI2 You're welcome lol, but my way is really inefficient. A lot of the puzzles that look really tricky can be solved in just 3 or 4 moves, but a lot of really simple puzzles need 6-10. I actually tried to solve the puzzles and got 159 moves
