You have to take your pills

Gameplay demonstration (Unreleased beta. Contains spoilers regarding pill side effects.)

This game was originally created within a group of 5 in 2 days for Ludum Dare game jam 40, the theme being "The more you have the worse it is". 

At its core, the game is a classic maze game in which the player must navigate procedurally generated mazes which increase in size and complexity as the levels progress.

However, the twist is that in order to exit each level, the player must pickup a certain number of pills which are scattered throughout the level. Each pill has a unique side effect which, while not significantly hindering on its own, can prove highly challenging when stacked with every other pills side effect. The number of pills required to exit a level increases, until they are ultimately faced with a level containing all 14 pills and their side-effects.

Some side effects include:

  • Reversed controls
  • Regeneration of the level's maze
  • Darkness
  • Tank controls
  • Invisible enemy/player
  • Rotating level

I'll leave you to figure out the rest. Have fun and good luck!
