Pound on the ground with your hammer to make ground rise on the other screen! Help Bib and Bub save all the stars!

Flip Flop is at its best when played with two players, but the game is just as enjoyable when played alone.

Really fun game, bit odd with score put in for a puzzle game but I guess that adds to the old-school style :P

I hear ya! The game originally had enemies, but I made the last minute decision of cutting them as the difficulty was rather punishing. That and the old school style were the reason for the scoring system.

That was fun gameplay with cute graphics :)
Felt just like an 8-bit NES game, sounds and all.

This is really good. Feels like an old 8 bit game, as was probably intended. Plays really well with some nice little puzzles, cute graphics and sound.

Well done!

Wasn't able to play. :( "flipflop.exe is not a valid Win32 application."

Really loved the style and the retro feel. I played it alone but it just gives this imaginary picture of two people playing it on a NES with controllers. Great job.

Nicely done. Well-rounded mechanics accompanied by nice retro graphics and challenging level design.

I've noticed a bug when both players are pushing down and try to move to the other's lane.

Awesome entry! Really liked this :D Reminded me of a bygone era. Everything about it is great from gameplay to graphics+sound. The theme is perfectly displayed here.

Good Luck (not that you'll need it :P)

I really enjoy the game, I think playing it with someone else must be 100% better. Beware that Norton is deleting the file =(

That was really fun. Those puzzles are trickier than I thought it'd be. You did an amazing job capturing a retro arcadey feel.

Really cool and fun idea. Plus I feel you did a great job with the difficulty curve to smoothly get the player used to the mechanics.

wow. the completeness of the game is impressive. a big thumbs up for the bunch of levels provided, and the fact of increasing the difficulty and progressively adding new elements such as stones and bridges for each level. I played it with my partner and it works really good as a multiplayer game (as promised ;). we raged quite a lot at each other, in a good way, lol :D

great game, I hope you win with this one! :)

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.
