Controls don't really make sense, but the mechanics were pretty smooth.

I had a hard time with the controls. And I got stuck in a "pit", couldn't jump out. Unfortunately, the "S" key for restart meant I restarted at times when I didn't want to. Loved the artstyle and sound/mood.

Cool concept and art style - but a little buggy (crawling).
A "Start"-button would also be nice :-)

Wasn't sure what to do as it was just showing the splash screen! Unrated as of yet...

Nice mood to the game. Liked the style of the art. The controls really threw me off though. The layout wasn't very intuitive so it was hard to remember what did what. Might be a small bug, but I also got stuck being unable to crawl past the little tunnel at the start. There was also an unfortunate pit I got trapped in early on. Interesting idea though.

Nice style, jump was very strong for the level size and there is a pit that you get stuck in if you fall into it early on. Can I ask why you chose to put the run command on "E"? it seemed a strange choice with A and Z so close. Great visual design though! well done.

Pretty nice. Some of the collision was a bit touchy and made it tricky to jump out of or over things but not bad. Controls were a bit uncomfortable

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.
