A well made little Prototype :)
Would have got more points in mood and graphics if you had visualy distinguished the real and dream worlds more.
The really short playtime worked in favour for the fun. If it was going to be longer there must be to the gameplay.

Overall a decent game :)

Cuuuuute !
Nice graphics and sound.
You should maybe add an animation to tell when the player hurts the enemies.

The slimes are so cute! I love the concept! My suggestion would be to add an enemy attack animation or visual.

Was there music here O.o? Some of the other people are saying yes but I didn't hear anything. Maybe problem with my laptop? I left audio unrated.

I liked the duality of the worlds and how what you in one affects the other. I wish it would have expressed itself more in the actual mechanics too, but this is pretty ok.

Grahpics were pretty cute and stylish :)

Thanks for your comments!

@esayitch Yes there's music. I've made its volume lower than that of the slime's moving sound so you can actually hear it over the music. You may need to turn up the volume.

Hi there. Nice idea with option selection as levels using same mechanics. Needs more levels. Like the graphics and sound. Good job!

A nice concept but it really needs more levels.

I like the idea of going to a dream world for gathering up courage points to then tackle real-world challenges. Wish there were more content! :)

Pretty decent, if a bit short...

Sorry about the lack of content, the ideas all started coming together a bit late. I got the main idea nearly right off the bat but it was going to be an FPS at first. FPS games tend to require bigger levels so I scrapped that. I chose a smaller type of game but with the same game mechanics. The problem was that happened probably 10-12 hours into the jam so I didn't have near as much time as I needed to put everything together AND make 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.
