About

Paintformer is a Nintendo DS-style action platformer where you can paint your own platforms. Lead the Jellysquid into the portal at the end of the level, drawing your own platforms along the way!

The game requires a mouse or touchscreen. Optionally, you can use a keyboard or a gamepad to make platforming easier.

The mechanic of drawing physics objects with the cursor is based mainly on the Brain It On! app.

Gotm Jam 14 prize winner for Gameplay category. Ranked 3rd of 6 games by users.

Tip: If you prefer the look of Super Mario Maker style mixels over pixel accuracy, turn on the setting “High-resolution subpixel scaling”.
