Was a bad call to name the game shift. So many other games with the same name, and even then it's a pretty common word regardless.

Completely stuck on level 61, the hint I didn't understand so left it there and was getting a bit boring. Was good up until then.

Hmmm, there were only 30 levels in the game I played, would give a hint or clue if I knew what level you were referring to. Thanks for sharing this one with us, Bart! I really enjoyed it. :)

Loved it! Although I got only 96/100, didn't got "find the easter egg" and "get the nerdy wordplay" :( Does someone know how to get them?

Michael Ursitti said...

stuck on 29. Only 30 levels, but in the game there's something that says x/100. I thought it was noting the level too, until I read -k's comment. Perhaps it's including double-backslash awards and achievements too.

Michael Ustitti how are you stuck? What is your thread of though until now?

On the last level, if you go past the three shapes you end up in an "unauthorised" stage. But without checkpoints it was too tough for me :(

I feel like I have played this game before. 7 or 8 years ago?

I found the easter egg. Spoiler alert: XiXtX'XsX XiXnX XiXnXeXrXtXiXaX XtXrXiXaXnXgXlXeX

I also got all the "docstrings" and the alternate ending, but I didn't get the nerdy wordplay thing... In terms of the last dash, just keep in mind what each shape's strengths are, and don't forget how to jump. Also, to get a head start, hold right during the text display at the bottom (make sure to be in circle) and it will save your position with momentum (so if you die, you respawn already moving).

Also, with all levels, docstrings and 7/8 achievements, my corner thing says 99/100. So it must be some sort of completion score. That means "61/100" could be any level, if we don't know how many docstrings or achievements were gotten.

Finally got 100/100. For the nerdy wordplay, here's a hint: if you have and can read all of the docstrings, then some of them have parentheses and look like function calls, and these often have something to do with the level (e.g. you bounce in 'Bounce()'). For one of those levels, you haven't done what the function call says if you don't have the achievement :).

Thx mate. Got "Get that nerdy wordplay" thx to your hint. Only thing on the game I couldn't find on my own. I should have seen that. lol

No idea why, but something triggered the piracy detector and I can't get to the game, I sent an email to the developer, waiting to hear back.
