Neat little game. I included it in my Open Jam 2018 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Intriguing submission, being a command-line game. I can't hardly see the theme in here, but I see the point. Characters were flickering in my computer while falling, it may be about vertical retrace. Nothing new to add to the classic game, but it's a good approach. I'll use the code to learn some Go, anyway. Thanks for your submission!

Interesting submission! And yeah, a terminal game is pretty cool. I'm curious how you see this matching up with "Spam to Win?" The reset did not work for me either, fyi. Can't help but feel it could use some juice or something to differentiate it from the classic game we all know.

Developer

Fixed that issue and uploaded new binaries.

Wow you don't see a terminal game in game jams often. Nice work, worked flawlessly on my system (Ubuntu 18.04) .

Didn't achieve win state when I got 4 in row with red, then 4 in row with blue won the game.  Bug?

Developer

will take a look into that

Good implementation of connect four, could use a "restart" action at the end (it resets but then I can't actually do anything?) and the columns could be ordered 1234567890 (instead of 0123456789, at least on my keyboard the 0 is right of the 9). But I see no connection the theme ("SPAM TO WIN") and from a game design perspective it's plain without any twist. If you attend another gamejam maybe a roguelike (like rogue, nethack or cataclysm) could be of interest for you?

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong but if I execute it and press any button I get an error:

Running the amd64 version on a linux.

It was a bug in the game. Thanks for pointing out.

I have updated the  files. Can you try now and review this game.

Submitted (1 edit)

Is this what it's meant to look like? Using Mac build. Never mind, looking at the screenshot it would seem it isn't.


Developer (1 edit)

hey which os you are using

Developer

it should not be like this

I cant download this, the cluster fuck that it is your downlooad luinks makes me wanna puke. But i´ll help you. Collect each file into a folder,  one folder per operating system.  Then upload each folder as a zip AND add the instructions to each operating system to run your game.

YOu can still do this and make your download part of your page look a bit better, and practical.

Fix this and i´ll rate it.

Developer

Thanks for the review, I will do it and let u know.

Developer

I added builds for every architecture here, actually you will need only one file among this  to run the game. 

Developer

I have taken out all un-popular archs.

Great, now the download page is readable. Also the game is pretty fun in windows.
