Save the screen from the bad chip...

The game is not very well finished and the ennemies are sometimes a bit buggy, but it's done, my first LD :)

EDIT : Sorry but the controls have been made for an AZERTY keyboard. You should switch you keyboard to AZERTY to play (probably alt+maj for a qwerty keyboard) :(

EDIT 2 : I have added arrow keys control for the players who have a QWERTY keyboard.

The controls are a bit weird for my liking, switching keyboard-modes didn't do anything for me.
Nice idea and execution, I dig the combination of 2D and 3D

Hard controls for me =( and switching didn't work.
But Good Work! Thanks for the funny game.

Thanks for your feedbacks :)

Sorry, I have made a mistake, it's Maj+alt to change the keyboard mode, not Tab+alt.

Controls are not intuitive at all; I feel as if you had so many options to make something that a majority of people would be comfortable with. That aside, the game was pretty solid once I got used to it.. Nice.

Ah finally got it figured out! Clever idea, and nice job! Graphics are a little dark but I guess that is by design :)

The fact that the game would become impossible fairly early on ruined it for me. And the fact that the default controls wasn't QWERTY is quite frustrating. I couldn't seem to swap, either.

It seems like I can only move down and right. Maybe we can only move in a positive direction?

I don´t know, how to move properly with character. Sometimes fall the whole path to some button, so I can´t simply step on it. But nice game with nice graphic!

More or less mediocre, especially with the controls... Still, quite cool.

@internetspaulicy : No, it's that the game has been made for AZERTY keyboards. Switch to AZERTY.

Many people seem can't move the character, so I have added an arrow keys control for the non-azerty keyboard.

Cool concept. I like the simplicity of the graphics and the moody dark setting. Having the ground fall beneath you is a nice touch and it created a scenario for me where I had to hug a corner to get to the last button! Congrats on your first Ludum Dare! Well done!

Dificult to play,, but a good game

Random dropping level with the way the AI works meant you could build unwinnable scenarios.

Buttons seemed a bit glitchy, not triggering green when you touched them. It was possible to get trapped between rocks and such.

Otherwise not bad - just needs some proper tiling.

I like the concept a lot, and the arrow controls work great. I found that it was pretty hard though, because the enemies sometimes block the buttons.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
