Simple but rather fun. Also the sword clips through the walls.

The sword dont react with walls, because otherwise the game comes unplayable... This deserve the phrase: "Es lo hay valor" XD

This is epic in the best sense of the word! Love the fact that it's called Cube of quads :-)

Simple but fun. The camera seemed a bit high, but I got used to it. The sword clipping was noticeable.

Pretty fun concept there, nice interpretation of the theme! I just don't know what happened in the end... :)

Aug 27, 2013 @ 2:48pm

Hah, the music is sooo epic! Well done!

DesignerNap: Mmm, twice Newgrounds and the Windows link are working =/ ... Internet problems maybe?

Quite entertaining and fun, although I wasn't a huge fan of the camera perspective. I liked the laser sword, and the music was bad ass.

Enemies only spawned for the first few waves.

Liked the music and use of theme but I'm not really a fan of the game itself. This game exemplifies a negative stigma associated with games made in Unity. This happens when games feature no art and only uses default prefabs and lighting.

It's a more acceptable approach in a game jam where there's limited time for art assets, but still, you can't express your creativity when you don't at least attempt to make art for your game.

The music was nice! The rest was ok.

aayars: You have to move to the next room ;)

Broxxar: You're right, I should not enter with Unity3d, 2d games are faster to develop and tweak... And I can make bizarre 2d art... But, I learn this at the road =)

Interesting game, a bit repetitive. Didn't understand the ending.

Loved the music, and I have to agree, strafe for this game would be a must! :)

Hey yetatore, nice work for your first Ludum! I actually enjoyed this one.

Don't worry about using Unity for your Ludum Dare project, you can make a "2D" game with it just as fine as any other 2D game engine, which it looks like you won't have any problems with coding it.

I teamed up with a buddy and we made a Unity game too, check it out here:

Haha, que idea, me gusta mucho, solo el control de los bloques es un poco raro, pienso tambien que seria mejor con strafe.
Y la musica... lo mejor de todo, perfecto para este tipo de juego.
Thumbs up.

Got it finally! :) played through and complete. Good fun and nice change of perspective. well done!

Heh, kinda entertaining, although for most of it I thought the player couldn't take damage.

Also, did you really make that music in the 48 hours? Sounds like it is using samples...

Sep 14, 2013 @ 8:11am

Pretty funny stuff, the music hits the right mood. :) Though I'm with CMaster, if you didn't make the music that would be against the rules. If you *did* make the music, consider this a compliment.

yetatore says ...

Wow! I made the music from scratch in 3 hours.
I used FLStudio + RealLPC (guitar) + GuitarRig5 (efects) + Various FlStudio Plugins.

In my Postmortem I wrote an explanation of the composing process =)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. 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 ( 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.
