Halfway Through Review – Top 5 Games now that I’ve rated 50

Well, I’m on an epic quest to rate 100 games and get that gold star. Now that I’m halfway through, I’m going to share my favorites in no particular order:

Blackbird and joekinley’s “Cracked” – A new take on gameplay typically reserved for RPGs or tower defense games.

emveyh’s “70 Seconds Left” – Not sure what this has to do with the theme, but it’s some of the best fun I’ve had here.

Fireblend’s “Disregard All Humans” – Kill all the people and crush the cities before the world shrinks into nothingness!

Tompudding’s “Giant Wizards from the Outer Rim” – A multiplayer game that has a lot of potential and is fun to play as it stands.

Last but not least:

josefnpat’s “Pocket Strife” – A real time strategy where you have to build up a city and defenses as quickly as possible.

Since you’re still reading this, don’t forget to try my game out.


Game Hosting for Web Games

So, how many of you make web games, but have to pack it into a .zip file and have people download it?

NO MORE! I have a server that I run myself (no jokes please), and I’d be more than happy to host your game for Ludum Dare. Just to note, you might want to keep a spare download *just* in case.

If you’re intrested, send me an email with a link to the zip, and I’ll have it up on my server. My email address can be found here, though you’ll need to fill out a captcha first. Of course, I may be busy, so I may not get the links up until just after the compo.


I’m hosting webgames. Email me with your games and I’ll send you a link to your game. My email address is here.
