voodoo lockdown [browser]

Use the letters on your keyboard to make it to the main control room of the abandoned ancient ruins in the puzzle platformer Voodoo Lockdown created by Antti Haavikko for the 'running out of power' themed Ludum Dare 39 game jam. (Controls: cursor keys + space to jump. When you are close to a machine: any letter.)

Great game, but I'm a bit stuck... can't find a fitting letter

Got it, hint: you can can type other letters when you are already on the letter...

I give up. I got to the room with the six terminals, managed to get all the way to the top (on top of the letters), but there's nowhere to go. I almost feel like I'm supposed to enter some sort of six-letter word or code, but no clue what that is. (Tried the name of the game, then gave up.)

I'm there too! Is there an ending?

There is an ending in the six terminal room - just remember movies of old - what did they fade to? ;)

for the last six terminal room - I was just trying random letters and the correct ones had some colored stars that appeared when they were entered.

@Anon/15:52: Last time I checked "BLACK" is just five letters. No clue what else it might be from that hint. At any rate, I'm not going to go back and replay if that truly was the final room; it's all good.

Thanks for sharing the game!

Quite a lot of people seem to get stuck on the final bit. Most of them have the correct idea of requiring a six letter passphrase. I thought having the correct letters look/sound different would be enough of a hint to make it pretty easily "crackable".

If it were an artsy movie the last code would be "FIN"

PK said...

@Antti: Part of the problem is that there's no way to know that that's the last room! The code phrase you were looking for only makes sense at the end of the game, and I was busy looking for how I was supposed to get to the next room.

Oh yes, I think having left the roof of that missing was a design flaw. But hey, it's a jam game, it's pretty much impossible to get everything right without proper testing.

The stars sparkle, when a correct letter are entered.
Rather than six letters, two three-letter-words.
It is synonymous with FIN, and represent to clear the game.

I was sure that the last phrase would be "YOU WIN", surely needs some more specific hints rather than just teh number of letters. Also, it's not entirely obvious that one could try hitting all possible buttons.
