Which Way Is Up?

Which Way Is Up? - 0.7.0

Olli Etuaho (hectigo)



A traditional and challenging 2D platformer with a slight rotational twist. Help a mysterious big-eared salaryman named Guy find his keys in a labyrinth of dangers and bad dialogue. The game was originally developed for the PyWeek 4 game development competition. It placed #1 in the individual category, and had the best score overall. Currently, the game is constantly being developed further. Go to the game's home page to download the version made for PyWeek (beta 0.5.5) or an updated version (beta 0.6.5) of the game.


The latest stable version from the end of May, and probably the last one for a couple of months. Some hilights of the changes to this version: * A new seven-level world with new kinds of puzzles and one new enemy type * A speedrun timer to measure your gaming skills * Slightly improved graphical effects and animations * Lots of minor bug fixes and improvements Software requirements for the source code version: * Python * Pygame

Does the main game have an ending? I want to request someone to play the game through and post it on youtube.

A really good pyweek entry :) I found it a little repetitive after level 6, but it was still a fun experience. Good work!

The BEST Py-Game I have ever played. I aspire to make games like these. Definitely worth a download. This game also lets you create your own levels, so that you never get tired of playing. You can create levels and send them to your friends and challenge them to pay it. And the Graphics, just one word - Awesome!!!...
Do download this innovative game, its worth it.
