Thanks everyone who took the time to look at my game! Today, besides my 10 daily rates, I also decided to return the love and rate/comment the games of those who rated mine or commented on my posts. Here are the highlights – the games that I enjoyed most. Give them a try, and I hope you like them too!

$ales — This game show how to turn a boring entry into a nice entry with a single stroke: the audio. The narration is very funny! The game is a “trading simulator”, you go around a map, trying to buy low and sell high to achieve a monetary goal.

Nematode — A very unique game: a kind of reverse snake. There are worms walking around in the game map, and you drop colored foods in front of them. If you can make a snake the right color by giving it foods in the right order, you gain points. I really liked the idea. Although the game is a bit too hard at the moment, it is worth a try.

Zunzanda — an extremely polished, challengin, fun game. You have a small island that you have to defend against monsters that are trying to eat it. The graphics, sounds and narration are well put together and give the game a very memorable face. I can easily see this making top charts in this LD, given its degree of polish.

Burning Platform — a perfect android/mobile game. Simple, you start it up, and can get right into it. Addictive, with the “beat your previous score” factor. It is a balancing game, where the goal is to keep your “friends” in the platform by balancing it with your phone’s accelerometer. It is a bit too hard at the moment, I hope the post-compo version works a bit on the difficulty curve.

Mozi Life
— another unique game, this is a series of mini games that show the life cycle of a mosquito. Each of the minigames are quite simple, but they are tied together in a nice way. Would look great in an encyclopedia.

Audioland — more a toy than a game, it is world of sand meets music generator. Great and unique idea, I could see this being used to generate musics for future ludum dares :-)

See you tomorrow!

    Thanks for the ZUNZANDA mention! You are easily one of the best reviewers…. probably THE best. You’re so thorough. You actually take the time to play games in-depth, and you post meaningful and insightful observations, critiques, and comments. You deserve another trophy!
