That's sure one trunk armed high heels wearing dude!

Didn't load properly the first time (everything invisible), a quick refresh fixed it.

I thought a player dies when she falls to a hole. So I was surprised! I want some targets or a goal. Nice game :)

Took me a while to realize there was another world. Nice take on the theme.

This wasn't at all what I was expecting - in a good way :)

I love "innocence" of the initial world, with the stark contrast to the other one. The other one being the one I accidentally discovered when I couldn't make a jump across a wide gap, thinking I'd die.

And then I jumped on top of a bat. That seemed to happily carry me around, so I thought they were friendly. Until another bat tried to kill me.

At first I wasn't expecting much, but the game is really fun in a way many prettier games aren't!

What a pro tip you've taught me: rollerskates are a really great way to avoid drawing leg animations :)

I enjoyed this. There was a lot more variety in the enemies than I have come to expect in a compo entry. Great work. :)

Pretty fun game, I think that the game art could have been more coherent, it felt very mixed. Otherwise it nice. The jumping was very floaty though.

Nice work. Simple but cool.

If you jump into a hole that exists on both worlds, after fallinf for a while, the character breaks light speed and it goes through plattforms XD Also cool that when you shoot vertically the bullets can fall on your face XDD

Pretty decent. Good to see someone else from Ireland. I found the gravity on bullets just slightly annoying. I enjoyed your take on the theme however. Well done I hope you continue to enter ludum dare.

I like that the bullets have some drop, changes the dynamics of the shooting...

Ads on your web version? Not cool :(

Controls were a bit unresponsive and the game a bit buggy. Quite a confusing experience. Keep improving!

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.
