Solid execution, and that music immediately gets me pumped. Kinda harsh to have to restart the entire game upon any death, though. :o Great game overall.

Good Job, it was smooth, it was consistent but not boring. It made me have to glance around the screen while pressing buttons all the while looking at the countdown, very well executed. The art style was good and the colors were well picked but my favorite aspect was the music which got me in the mood. Again, Congrats!

@Anshzinc @arttut02 @Sogomn thank you guys so much. I enjoyed making the game and being a part of LD. I'm so glad you liked it :)

Aug 26, 2014 @ 1:17pm

Nice music and solid gameplay. Surprising variety of levels. I managed to get to the one that has you scrolling in different directions at the same time and then my brain imploded. That's good! :D

I loved this little game! I the simplicity of the graphics and the controls are pretty tight. Nice job.

Nice Work keep going

Aug 29, 2014 @ 9:01pm

Oh my god, what a relief to play something that actually feels polished :D

Awesome music, fitting graphics and interesting gameplay (especially the last level). And you even threw in a third man there in the middle of the game. Great job, thanks for this :)

Aug 29, 2014 @ 9:16pm

Nice game, there was a very large stage in which I died four times and left...

kidando says ...

@KingBolonzo thank you

@ZeppelinCaptain I'm really glad you liked it.I wasn't sure if it was too short, but thanks for making it not seem like that. LD is just awesome

kidando says ...
Aug 30, 2014 @ 4:13am

:D @thecolorhacker as long as you had fun. thank you so much

This turned out to be a lot better than the first few levels suggested it would be! Mainly since each level brings a new kind of challenge. The fact that some levels have 3 separate worlds instead of just 2 was really cool & unexpected! I just wish you didn't make that one really long mistake sends you aaaaall the way back, and it's a sharp contrast with the quick levels that precede it. Other than that, this game is a ton of fun! Nice work!

kidando says ...
Aug 30, 2014 @ 4:53am

@mrJohnson22 thank you so much for the feedback. That actually makes a lot of sense. Thanks again for playing

Awesome game. Extremely well polished, nice levels (Why no more of them? :D), the music is awesome (I bet this will be on top 10 in the audio for sure, if not top 3) . Excellent job!

I was unable to open the game on my Win-32 PC. My scores are N/A so they will not affect your ratings.

kidando says ...
Aug 30, 2014 @ 7:12am

thank you so much @shatterhand. Im not sure if I'll make the top 10 list (would be great), I'm just so blown away by how awesome LD is. Game development is just awesome. Thanks again

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.
