I’ve played and rated 100 Ludum Dare entries so far, and along the way I’ve found a fair few games that are really a lot of fun which I’d like to share with you all. What follows, in no particular order, are my favourite games from Ludum Dare #23
Tiny Wizard – kebabskal
Actually, this one probably is my favourite. I love the bite-sized levels, slow difficulty increase, and of course the general gameplay. It’s really very satisfying to simply shoot and move around, and beating each level feels great!
Dude, where’s my planet – Zamando
Beautiful to look at, though challenging.
Celia – Finn Stokes
Stunning graphics, a cool core mechanic and a lot of fun.
Inside My Radio – TurboDindon
A unique and innovative take on music games. It’s good to see a music game in Ludum Dare. Extremely well polished.
Prince of Leaves – evilseanbot
A feel good game. Cute graphics and an original bespoked music track which make you want to play all the way through to the end.
Corebound – Ryusui
Challenging at times, but very rewarding. Unique gameplay mechanic which is sort of an automatic twist on VVVVVV’s gravity system, allowing circular orbiting movements.
Lililput – Incredible Ape
Amazing pixel art and educational fun! Learn to type like a pro while destroying aliens!
Astro Break – hulahulahest
One of the most compelling games in the competition. Powerups and new weapons can keep you blowing up rocks all day!
Little City – dustmyte
Hilarious game with entertaining dialogue. Nice black and white visuals as well.
Microscopia – azurenimbus
The premise is simple: Navigate to the center of the screen. The real question is, where are you? Very innovative.
And, I may as well shamelessly plug my own game too!
ANT SURF HERO: THE SURFENING – Jigxor (Me!)
Thank you to everyone who has submitted awesome games. I’ve had a lot of fun playing them so far, and I can’t wait to play some more! I hope you all do the same.
