Xye portable Beta (puzzle game)

Xye is a puzzle game in which you have to get all the gems. The levels vary in difficulty and solving methods. It can also open and play sokoban files (.xsb)

When I got to portableApps.com today I really liked the way these things work, I was using U3 for a while but it didn't let me just add apps that are already portable and it also hides the folders and stuff.

I figured that I had to contribute with something and also Xye was in the portable philosophy for some time, It doesn't modiffy stuff outside its folder or touches the registry.

I had to tweak some stuff though so I need beta testers.

More info: http://xye.sourceforge.net/wxye.php

Download of portable version: From sourceforge

Yeah

You are right, I should add more instructions, maybe In game ones or something.

There are instructions in the zip but in GAMEINTRO.TXT.

Basically, you just select a level (which would probably be tutorials.xye) and play it.

To play just use the LEFT/UP/DOWN/RIGHT keys. Once you beat a level it will tell you to press + or N to get to next level.

In fact you can press - or P to get to previous level or you can even use +,N to go to a next level without beating the current one.

Also if there is a film icon at the bottom you can press S to play a solution demo, and if there is an [H] icon you can press H to get a hint, if you move your green ball above an [H] sign in the ground you can also read a hint.

The tutorials use those hints to kind of explain most of the game play.

No more feedback

This is probably a shameless bump anyways, no one else has got any feedback? It does not have to be positive.

This app leaves a file outside of its menu.

This app leaves a file named stdout.txt in the same directory with the PortableApps folder with the following info:
[Link wraps marked » - RM]

Will look on ./ for data files (non-user levels, skins)
no home folder found, this probably is a win32 build. If there is a home folder in

err

Shouldn't portable apps menu run the program with its own folder as work folder by default?

Either way I'll see what can I do.

But I already change work folder in the exe... position of stdin/out is determined before I change the work folder so it is gonna need external aid, either an update to apps menu or an script to run the game... I kind of wish there was a way to disable those since in windows they aren't that useful. Well, there should be a way to disable them...
