Sludge City

by Zemmi - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You live in a Sludge City ruled by a Sludge Baron.

By the baron's decree "All you damn tele- and pyro-mutants are hereby recruited to cleanse the sewers of radioactive slime beasts. Do whatever it takes, they're mucking up my sludge."

Here be the Rules:
SPACE--> Use your telekinesis to rotate pipes
S--> Use your pyrokinesis to detonate and burn out the slimey things

Only one worker is permitted per area, so don't screw up and get all the sludge devils.

R: Restart Level
P: Pause

Argh - very intense haha. Took a while to grasp the controls and not blow myself up. It gets tricky trying to keep the slime beasts at bay while lining up the pipes for the perfect shot. Nice work - loved the pixelly art!

This is a lot of fun and a really original idea. The font on the first screen is a little hard to read but other than that I really like the are style. Once I got the controls down it felt really good to play. I did keep pushing S when I meant to press space at first :P

Very nice overall! I like the level design and the artwork. The sound effects tend to be irritating after a while, though :)

Love the gameplay, remind me to Bomberman but with more unique twist on the level design. The text a bit unreadable though...

Impressive number of levels. Very good. I would've liked to see more of the expanding sludge from the final level.

Wow, glad to see everyone enjoying it. I'm gonna be busy for a bit here but after Christmas I'll definitely get back on it and make more levels.

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.
