The world is being flooded by a rainstorm of mythical proportions!

Can our frog hero escape the rising water before it's too late, or is this just delaying the inevitable?

Made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 50. (Theme: "Delaying the inevitable.") [It ended up placing 8th overall! Amazing!!]

Use the arrow keys to move around. You can push boxes. Metal (red) boxes will sink in water, but wooden boxes will float. The water rises every time you take a step, and will submerge one layer of the level every five steps. You can climb up a ladder, which only counts as one step.

The Roman numerals on each layer represent the height of the layer. I think I forgot to say that in the game. Oops.

Fun puzzle game, though. Only problem is that I cannot work out level 7 at all. Is there a way to get my frog hero to platform VII?

You may need to ‘think outside the box’ with regards to the arrangement of the boxes…

Ohh... I get it now. Does that mean that I have to push the wooden box into the water first, then the heavy block on top of the box?

😉

why not make a boat using float box?

🤔

like this
o = you, x = float box
o
xx
why this is not a win, you can survive forever with this lol

Well, you would survive but you would be trapped forever on your two tiny boxes. So eventually the frog-person would die of thirst floating out in the ocean.

good idea, lol
