REVOLVENGARDE is an action game about reflecting arbitrary objects. Survive for the longest time on three different modes!

This was my first Ludum Dare! So much fun. 10/10 would participate again.

Wow, really cool. One of the standouts for me so far. Really polished. Great stuff.

Really fun game. Even though the graphics were minimal, the way the paddle remained perfectly pixellated when rotated made it look really good.

Super fun. I also really like how minimalistic the UI is. Super hexagon meets pong and potatoes.

Very Nice, Good controls, nice audio, nice game, fitted the theme well. I like how you made the menu fit with the feel of the game - if you understand what I mean, the selection scheme was really nice. The amount of polish on this game is amazing

Really enjoyed this - such a simple idea executed perfectly :)

Really enjoyable and beautiful. My only criticism is that it's easy to accidentally advance the menu twice when holding down left/right in the first screen. I can't unlearn batting away the potatoes :(

Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:21am

Very addictive an fun! :)

I just want to see what this concept can give if pushed further now :D

Absolutely amazing game. Amazing gameplay, amazing minimalism, amazing music, amazing everything. This game deserves to win LD 26.

My high scores are 73/65/43. Anyone managed to get higher scores?

Really nicely done! The game was cool, and the menu interface was super awesome too. Really captured the minimal style.
Also, the music is great.

Definitely one of the best games I've played this Ludum Dare.

The Super Hexagon inspiration is obvious, but I love Super Hexagon so it is not unwelcome. The music is great, the controls are smooth.

Hard to want more from a 48 hour game.

I love it - easy to learn, with multiple levels of challenge. So much fun. Great, great use of the music! So charming, hope you push it to a full release version.

That is so awesome. The music is just great and I love how you drop in and out music elements between the menu and the game. Superb work. You should be very proud.

This is awesome, I love everything about it. You even used minimalism in the title screen, that is great, music is great, game is awesome and very tough D:

Elegant in its simplicity. Great music, excellent control.

Nice idea, but it should start a little slower, especially the second level which is way too hard for me (and shouldn't be the default!). I had fun with the first level though!
(Audio didn't work under Wine.)

Very addictive, even tough I can't last very long. Nice game!

Tremendously cool! It is simple and quite fun, and the higher levels add a lot of challenge.

Very cool idea, the music and graphics fit the game perfectly.
Feels like it would be even better with an option for mouse control.

Blocking the incoming blue square interested me and the music entertained me. If you continue to develop this for a newb like me, then I got frustrated at the level with red and blue, because I was not reacting fast enough or accurately enough.

This is awesome! Great concept, great execution, great music. Would be better if the hits were on beat though :)

Fun game :) The difficulty should be lowered at the beginning though.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline.

For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
