Technically it did not run. but I mannaged to fix. it is probably something to do with pygame versions. and hence this is why we use venv and requirements.txt systems.

The issue was on line 19 in `pygame.font.Font uses 2 argument parameters but you used only 1 and another key word parameter argument. so instead of `size=size`. below is what I used.

`pygame.font.Font(os.path.join(data_dir, 'fonts', font_file_name), size)`

don't forget to add a "congratulation" screen when you win. as it was quite easy really. also a reset button

I like this concept a lot. Could be a bit more polished, but I think this could make for a very good puzzle-y game. Nice work.

This is a mini game. Unfortunately without sound nor audio.

Did not work


pyweek games\Dark_Matter_Search\Dark Matter Search\gamelib\", line 19, in load_font
return pygame.font.Font(os.path.join(data_dir, 'fonts', font_file_name), size=size)
TypeError: function takes exactly 2 arguments (1 given)

nice idea but gameplay could be more descriptive (how many guesses left, where did I guess before etc.)

Very hard

Cool concept! I agree with your post that showing the location of the unfound dark matter at the end of the game would be a good improvement. It is a bit luck-based. If your probes happen to pass close to all the dark matter then you have a pretty good shot. But that's fine since the game is so short, I was able to play a few times until I won.

Hi, the idea was really good, but the game is clearly not balanced well. I even got a screen telling me I won and I lose the same time. It would have been much more user friendly if there were some UI elements like how many more I can probe. Or even better allowing me to probe as many as I want and keep the "least number of probes used" for ranking. I think this game interpreted DarkMatter really well. I did had a really hard time finding it and that what DarkMatter is.

Nice concept and good attempt. Try adding a screen with instructions and a way to restart the game without closing and relaunching. A win screen like the lose screen would complete it.

-Interesting concept
-Start button was really tiny

Fresh concept!

Clear and simple game. Would have been nice to be able to restart without closing and reopening

Cool concept: made sense: I found it most effective to just drop probes with zero velocity and let them fall to their dark matter attractors. I liked the background image: maybe a little bit of sound or music could have added to the experience. Cool!
