by midgard - 48 Hour Compo Entry

CandyWorm is a time-attack game, this means you'll need to keep being fast while eating candy to summon a portal to the other world, if not, the current world will enter in an appocalypse state and will erase you from the history.

Eat candy and take portals, what can be MORE fun than this?

Features two worlds, a pink-ambiented one where you start that is slighty easy than the ice one, that's got lava holes for you to fall down! The original idea would have a whole Universe to eat candy from, but yeah, LudumDare is about the time, so here it is.

Keyboard: Left and Right arrow keys to strafe with the CandyWorm. S to JUMP and D to DASH, H to toggle Candy positioning on screen.
Joysitck/Gamepad (x360): Left Analog to strafe, A to jump, B to dash, Y to toggle Candy positioning on screen.

If you have FEEDBACK or COMMENTS to give, please post below or contact me at! I really appreciate every play!

The mixture of pixel-art and 3D doesn't look so great, but this game differs from others, so that's good :)

I enjoyed this one! Wasnt sure exactly the game rules, but control was floaty and fun. I like the style - Proteus meets Snake?

It's a good game you should probably try to adapt it to play it in a tablet or something like that.
I can imagine myself playing it while I'm waiting into the station :)

Quite hard to steer but maybe that's just me ;). Graphics remind me first 3d games for PS1. Also reminds me Nano Assault Neo for Wii U.

I loved the idea but I couldn't find the portal!

Hey there, thanks everyone for playing and for providing feedback!

Be sure to remind where you started so you cand find the portal when you eat every candy, at the start, and when you switch worlds, you start where the portals are. So keep that in mind!

Also, there's a persistent portal icon that appears when you face the right direction where the portal is.

I really love the art style, the music is cool and controls feel really tight, I like the dramatic progression throughout the game, some sfx would have been brilliant but you've made a cool little game here

Hi there. The graphics and animations are great, but for me there's something wrong with the left/right turning (keyboard/Web/Chrome/W8.1) - it's too quick and you end up missing things, or going round in circle. Good job overall!

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.
