Switcheroo

Switcheroo is a new puzzle game I made in VScode!! It's also my first game post in a long time...

I made this game using nothing but google fonts and font awesome!! I really like how the usage of icons has really shaped this game. I'll explore more into later games ;) I also really like the transitions :D

One of my better projects, I really liked how dynamic this was!

How to play

Your goal is to make all the squares green. Click on a square to invert its whole row and column.

Can you solve this puzzle in only one move?
Answer: If you said row 1 column 4, you are correct! Because the whole row and column is inverted, the red L vanishes!

Hints

Some levels are a bit hard, so I will drop in some hints. The notation is `(x,y)`. It denotes the position of the square to click on. Note: The puzzle doesn't get solved! It gets you to a state where you can hopefully figure it out on your own.
ONLY DO THESE WHEN YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE

26(3,3)(2,2)
34(1,4)
35(1,1)

Strategy

The trick is to click on all the tiles that are red at the very beginning. Then after you've clicked all those, repeat. Works every time ;)

@DynamicSquid At this point, it's best to ask:

@DynamicSquid I mean, I prefer jellyfish myself, but I'll support any kind of tentacled sea creature :D

@fuzzyastrocat Apparently, they cannot eat the blue-ringed octopus.

fuzzyastrocat

@sylashur Good to know. If I ever get a pet squid I'll never feed it a blue-ringed octopus :D

Yeah I think so. I think they're venomous or something.

Why?

FlaminHotValdez

@Coder100 ye they're VERY poisonous enough to kill people.
