Play on Newgrounds (with medals!): http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/630327

STORY:

Kingdom of Solaris has always been protected by the light of the holy lighthouse. One day however, the lights disappeared, plunging the kingdom into darkness..

All hope is not lost. One day a young wizard Lucia arrived, and used all her strength to create a ball of light powerful enough to lit the lighthouse again!

While the orb is very powerful, it's also very unstable. A slightest bump can cause the orb to explode! Lucia needs to use the orb to light her way, while trying to keep the orb intact. Will she be able to end the age of darkness?


CONTROLS:

Use Arrow Keys or WASD to control Lucia. Press down or S to enter doors.

Use mouse to control orb of light. Beware that it explodes if it hits walls, platforms or goes off screen.

Esc returns you to main menu and skips the intro. M mutes and unmutes music

SCREENSHOTS:

It's a pretty cool puzzle platformer and looks great.  I'm glad you didn't make the wall-of-death part as difficult as Dangerous Dungeons (which I still haven't finished :P).

You could say that I've tried to learn from my mistakes :P

I tried to upload my game to Stencyl Arcade, but when the upload is complete, my game ends up looking like this:



For some reason the game displays in 480x320, even though the game's real size is 720x480. Because of this 1/3 of the game doesn't fit the gameplay area and thus makes the game unplayable.

I'm using the OpenFL 3.0 of Stencyl, could something in be bugged? I had to upload the game to GameJolt instead, but then I found out that the preloader is not working either, it just displays empty bar. The game loads normally, though.

I reported the scaling issue with Stencyl arcade here: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,27054.0.html

Possibly the same problem: http://community.stencyl.com/index.php/topic,27205.0.html

I'm not sure what's going on with the empty bar.

Hmm I uploaded Shine on Stencyl Arcade with the original unscaled resolution and turns out it's still pretty fun and playable even in smaller size: http://www.stencyl.com/game/play/23188

Turns out the preloader was working just fine, it just changed the white bar color the same black as the bar's background was. When I changed the bar fill's color to gray it started to display loading correctly.

I checked in a fix just now. You'll need to make a new entry though, but since this isn't the compo-linked entry, I hope it's OK to alter it.
