Nice concept, but could be a bit more fast-paced, and the enemies could variate a bit...

Thank you for you comments :)
It's fun to see people who plays the game :D

And yes, it's indeed half finished.
we were in rush, and published before it was done.
we've done most of the game at the last day.

But I think that we've learned quite a lot, so next time we would make a much better game :)

With more enemy types and faster pacing, it could be a neat defense game. Art is well done. Theme seems very loosely tied to the game.

It has potential. Would have liked to see more enemies.

Would be good if all the sprites had the quality of the main character.
Maybe your awves are a bit slow too :)

Not a bad start to an action/tower defense game. Obviously could use more. The double jump was a nice touch.

Great graphics!

It would be great if you finish this game. It has a very good potential!
I didn't get how to defeat flying enemies - they got me :(

Wow! You did this in 2 days? Amazing! I enjoyed playing a lot. Only the archer seemed a bit overwhelmed :)

The graphics are really awesome and you made some interesting gameplay here. The flying monsters are a bit annoying, because you need full mana to kill them and skilling the archer is not that effective.

This was really enjoyable, loved the characterisation of enemies and animation style. Would be nice to see a further developed version with prettier, more polished UI. Shame there's no sound too... other than that, very impressive work! :)

Thank you all!
Just wanted to say about the flying monsters, that you don't have to use full mana to kill them, you can jump high by pressing down
and then after a while press up(takes mana too, but not full mana).
and there is sound, I don't know why the sound didn't play in your computer.

Thanks again, we enjoy to see your comments :D

It's an awesome, fun game! Too bad it doesn't end and stopped progressing after a while (or seemed too), I would have kept playing long enough to get my wall at full height if not for that.

Good job!

Very nice game. I had fun playing it. Graphics and sound is good. The gameplay is solid, although the controls are sometimes not responding as I would have expected.

Graphics were pretty good and the general gameplay has a lot of potential.

Not a bad idea, the concept is cool, but needs some polish on the hitbox. It's hard to tell exactly where it is.

This was fun :) It is very elaborate gameplay with a lot of interesting choices.

The graphics were great. Reading through the comments I see you can jump high which I didn't know, a little intro page would have been helpful too. But overall good job.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.
