Third Law

by smugbit - 48 Hour Compo Entry

For every action...

This is my first Ludum Dare entry. Ran out of time for audio and collision detection is a bit rough.

Rules are simple - arrow keys left/right to move. Match colors for points. Avoid color mismatches.

Minimalist, but not the least. First I think this game is too easy and after 20 seconds I have understood that my movement in order to catch these bubbles isn't so easy. It's a brain storming. It's a really good concept for a first contribution on LD. Thank you ++

I found this to be simple and fun.

The first game I played I was confused as to how you could lose, and I lasted a long time. Every game after that...not so much. I like the concept!

Pretty cool. I figured out a trick pretty early on though and started racking up high scores in no time. :P I think it's fun though!

Really fun gameplay! Could play it for hours. The graphics are simple but stylish. Some audio would have been nice.

Good concept but you should rethink the mechanics.. Just standing still without moving I made 76 score..

Very nice, simplistic, but still very much appealing, game. Gets much harder after a little bit but that only makes it better. Unfortunately there are no sounds.

Oh, by the way: could you provide a windows binary so I can keep this offline?

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.
