The one feature that needs to be added is the ability to place the blocks that you remove, then you pretty much have Minecraft Lite!

Gravity does not seem to work for me... but that is a good start nonetheless. Keep on working!

Good starting entry into LD, there's really not much here but that's the whole deal of LD is to learn! It's actually pretty impressive for a first game, keep at it and you'll really get some impressive stuff done one day :).

This entry is a bit simple don't you think? I'm not completely sure how it fits into the theme of beneath the surface, besides the fact you can kinda see underground.

I think it's nice. I destroyed all the blocks but i'm not sure i won anyway. Maybe add a little gameplay next time but i like the idea of night and day and rain cycle.
Keep going.

It kind of reminded me of my own game, I had no clue what to do. haha! Anyway, I didn't get to see the physics or maybe I was clicking the wrong things. When I was 14 I didn't even think of programming, keep learning and practicing you're on the right track!

Don't use your age as an excuse (I made my first game at age 9 so what?). But there's a lot of potential, so please keep trying.

Not much to do, but it's still a game. Quite impressive compared to what I was making when I was your age.

Keep on improving and remember to have fun.

Congrats on coding!

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.
