Nice Idea. Music is good.
The Controls feel a bit unresponsive.

I didn't have any trouble playiong it (Web) I had a hard time just getting past the first hurdle, but easy games are boring games :)

That was really quite fantastic. The puzzles require some thinking as well as a bit of trial and error. Sometimes it was annoying that you had to restart all the way if you misaim a bomb, but still very fun. The graphics are simple and clean, but powerful and aesthetically very pleasing.

Very creative. I found the bombs a bit frustrating, though - it's difficult to aim them, and if you miss you have to start all over.

I like this game because it's almost the game that I want you create(artwork, style). Thank you to let me see what I want.

Pretty well executed, graphics are nice, could work really good on a mobile platform.

Great game overall and probably one one of the best uses of the theme too.

This is really cool, but for the life of me I cannot figure out the third level. I mist be missing something!

fun to play and cool graphics.

Excellent! It took me a bit to figure out the core mechanic. Maybe some slight effects/camera shake might help? Very cool visual and mood too.

Interesting concept! Kinda hard to play by myself, but there's some good potential on this game! Also you should disable the star's collider, cuz it still plays the "ding" sound if I approach the area where it was again.

Ok game, not too original.

Sweet mood to the game. It was a bit difficult to control two of the characters at once, but i think with time and practice isn't so bad. Great work!

Sep 10, 2014 @ 2:22pm

The visuals worked really well and the puzzle aspect was pretty challenging. Took me a bit to figure out what was going on.

nice innovative 2world platformer idea but some more informative tuturial levels would have done some good.

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.
