Wu Xing
Wu Xing - The five phases

Made for the yoyogames competition.

~Wu Xing are the five phases or elements in traditional chinese philosophy:
fire, earth, water, wood and metal.
The system was used to discribe interactions and relationships between phenomena.~


Goal:
Make rows and columns of eight of the same elements to make that row disappear.
Do this as fast as possible to make combo's for even more points and extra time.

Controls:
Use the mouse to click on the arrow buttons at the edges of the playing field.
This makes a row or column move.

Combo's:
When you clear a row or column a timebar at the right of the playing field will
start to decrease. If you manage to clear another column or row before that bar
is empty, the combo counter will be increased. The higher the combo counter, the
higher the score and time bonus you get. If the combo bar runs out of time, your
combo count will be resetted.

Game Over:
The game is over when the timebar at the bottom of the screen runs out of time.

Online highscores:
The ten best players that have recorded their scores can be viewed at the main
menu screen. Every name can be posted into the highscores only once. If you score
better than last time, your score will overwrite.

The idea is pretty good, and every graphical element, and the music fits really good together. Nice that you made an online highscore system too :)

7/10

It'd be better if one was to setup multiple lines that were of a shorter length, as it is now, it seems more of a grinding like activitity

Nice little game. The music helps for building pressure, along with the timer. The picture for the game on the 64Digits front page was a little deceiving.....I wasn't expecting a puzzle game, which is my favorite genre. 7/10

I enjoyed it a lot. The graphics were superb, the music fit perfectly and the i did not find any problems in the programming. I personally don't see any reasons to take points away, it's a very nice puzzle game. Congrats!
