Ludum Dare 34 — December 11th-14th, 2015 — Theme Tied: Two Button Controls, Growing

NOTE: Because of the Theme tie, we allowed everyone to pick either Theme. Using both was optional. To keep things simple, there will still only be one Theme category. Every category in Ludum Dare voting is an opinion, so you’re welcome to rate them as you see fit. But we encourage you to be fair in your scores to people that chose only one Theme, and not both.

Very nice graphics and audio!
But it took me a while to understand the mechanics, it was not clear.

found the mechanic very simple to understand and the game is very good.
Very nice job !

I really liked these fellows talk among themselves, and this charming graphics with great sound complemented atmosphere. Very cool when unknown objects appear everywhere and you must dodge them.
+ game for one and for two people

Great graphics! A tad difficult to control the direction of the jump, but I was very pleased with the control in general.

Great game. The graphics and audio are very well made and it was very intuitive to play. I found some of the events that kill you almost impossible to dodge but some were fair and added to the gameplay. Overall excellent entry!

Dec 15, 2015 @ 9:49am

Really a gem, something new i loved it, Super fun to play and art style looks great

Very nice little game. Good graphics and sweet audio.

bodsey says ...
Dec 15, 2015 @ 10:56am

It's very nicely put together and coherent. I think the gameplay in itself misses some comfort. I should try with a friend, but playing alone I had a hard time understanding what was the exact rules. Good job!

plauk says ...

Really cool but it froze (ha!) a few times. Great use of two buttons.

It takes some time to understand how to play, but well done overall.

adsilcott says ...
Dec 15, 2015 @ 7:37pm

As soon as I figured out the mechanic I was hooked, no pun intended. Really fun and clever, and great minimal style too!

Optimus6128 says ...
Dec 15, 2015 @ 7:51pm

Nice idea for two buttons (it actually reminds me of a section in the game Brothers, tales of two sons) it plays very well when you realize you have to hold each button every time, not just click.

JLET says ...
Dec 15, 2015 @ 8:11pm

One of my favorite jam entry, simple concept but very efficient. The game is very clean, no bug but some graphics assets are a bit blurred. It takes me several tries to get the gameplay but after that the game is very pleasant. Go publish your game on mobile store.

pjimmy says ...

cool game, very fun and engaging, this is great to play with friends, well done :)

BROWNY_09 says ...
Dec 15, 2015 @ 9:08pm

This was great. It was little confusing at first but I got the "hang" of it quickly...heh. My best score was 73. A plane hit me. Excellent job on this entry!

Dec 15, 2015 @ 9:29pm

Thank you all for supporting comments we read all the comments and saw that you have a few suggestions and questions which we will try to answer:

@ Polith Games
We realized that many people do not understand from the first tutorial how to play, so the next update will allocate for that more time and do it step by step and easy to understand

@ teamross
physics of characters no ready to end in the future the future we revised it to a visually better

@ Leuthil
game system is not fully completed yet, some mechanics need to improve, maybe in the future we will introduce three lives for the game

@ Plauk
we will optimize the game in the furture development and hope that it will not lags

NirabazGAMES says ...
Dec 15, 2015 @ 9:32pm

P.S.
And we will also soon mobile version of the game where the characters try to add a new, more kinds of obstacles and perhaps the game to four people

Dec 15, 2015 @ 9:34pm

Love this game! i wish there was a windows version because the web version freezes, iiiittts cc-ccold, jk. the window does freeze and it really stinks.

Great game ^^ Great approach on the theme! Simple, objective, easy to use but has a challenge.
I just have had a small freeze moment.

Dec 16, 2015 @ 7:06am

Interesting concept. The controls were very nice once I got the hang of it.

paulfysh says ...

It took me a bit to work out how to control the guys properly, a bit more control information in the blurb would have been helpful I think.

Nice hard to find how to play, but fun after that

utgarda says ...
Dec 16, 2015 @ 10:20pm

Neat! Talking characters and really unexpected stuff falling down =) I'm pretty sure the only thing you need to make controls totally clear is just putting a "press and HOLD" line where controls are shown. Took me a while.

logon13 says ...

I got a 91, pretty good! It was a fun game :) I liked the graphics, although it was a little bit repetitive. good job! =D

IAmSpencer says ...
Dec 17, 2015 @ 1:58am

that was pretty fun!

I didn't get the controls at first, but once I realized I was supposed to 'hold' the key to 'hold' onto the mountain, they started to feel really intuitive and easy to use.

I didn't like how the climbers would let go at random sometimes, kinda made it feel like the game wasn't registering my key-presses which was slightly annoying.

I loved the graphics, and overall 'feel' of the game, it really felt like a snowy landscape.

Good job for 48 hours! :)

IAmSpencer says ...
Dec 17, 2015 @ 1:59am

*72 hours, haha my bad :)

nunesbarbosa says ...
Dec 17, 2015 @ 2:01am

Died two times until I got the mechanics.. It is not good the guys always swinging to the same side and having to wait to swing to the other side.. takes too long to climb.

Zanzlanz says ...
Dec 17, 2015 @ 5:06am

It's a stylish, well-polished game! I wish I had a friend to play with - I'm sure it would be hilarious. Good job!

vedmich says ...
Dec 17, 2015 @ 8:17am

The concept is quite cool!
Core gameplay and climbers chatting – very nice!
Smooth graphics and holy flying whale! :D
I see what you did here!

Yet I think you should add more interesting events and micro mechanics for even more fun.

Well done overall!

Leon Möhring says ...
Dec 17, 2015 @ 9:54am

very clean graphics style and also cool sound effects, very nice game

Dec 17, 2015 @ 11:18am

Technically a one-button game if you play with two ;)

Nice graphics and good idea ! I played on android and had some difficulties to master the controls. I believe it's pretty fun with a second player on computer.

HUMANICS says ...

It takes a while to master the controls ;) After that it's a really nice game!

craigoryham says ...
Dec 17, 2015 @ 10:44pm

Instructions would have been nice, but after a few fails it became pretty apparent how to play. Funny game, good graphics, fit the theme well, and the controls were tight. Good job.

Dec 17, 2015 @ 11:11pm

Windows version plz!!!

You are wicked cool guys! Thanks for your comments! It makes us to work better.

OberynMartell says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 3:19am

Nice game! I really liked the mechanics and the artstyle! Congrats!

Dec 18, 2015 @ 4:01am

I have a soft spot for mountain climbing games :D It's definitely fun to play! I loved swinging around and toggling between the two climbers. I think it's too easy to game the system right now, though, just by swinging and toggling and the height of the arc. Maybe adding a bit more variety into the level would help break that up.

yuotta says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 8:19am

It's a nice concept.

The controls were a bit too spaced, would have liked 'A' and 'D' but what really didn't work was it crashed Chrome when I hit '28'.

Only other thing I would have to say is, the mountain needed a better texture, I couldn't tell what I was climbing for the first 20 seconds
.
The game itself is a cool concept and I think if you make those changes you should continue to develop it!

Herzucco says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 11:23am

Really great ! a good game jam game: simple but fun

beetracks says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 11:45am

Confusing at first, but very fun when you figure out. Actually, it makes sense to have to hold the button, I didn't just expected it. Nice idea, nice audio, cool illustration e good gameplay. Congratulations!

jsmars says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 11:59am

Nice game! Very fun idea, especially in a COOP with a friend! Could be a bit more to it and increased difficulty, it's a bit too forgiving for my taste if you let go etc.

Weeping Rupee says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 3:05pm

This game was very fun (I played with with my 3 year old son after I tried it solo). The two button theme with two players is hard to pull off and I've seen alot of games suffer for trying to pull off something that can be two player or single player when they would have just been better off with the latter. This game does not suffer from that trap.

My only complaints: the host site kept crashing the game. Also, it would be nice if the appearance of the flying enemies (the ones the approach horizontally) was telegraphed as well as the falling enemies-- maybe some audio before they appear along with the same little caution sign you put for the falling enemies-- just put it on the side of the offscreen area they're approaching from?

fafastudio says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 4:20pm

A nice game !
Maybe the mechanics are a bit confusing, (i mean, at a time i realised that just spamming space and enter worked perfectly to climb slowly but surely xD) but the atmosphere were here, and i loved that !

Well played =)

piper82 says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 5:40pm

took me a while to understand mechanics and as soon as i got it i started to climb to unbelievable height of 12 meters and got struck by airliner. good, fun game.

BuffaloPhil says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 7:09pm

Fun little mechanic, nice art, but the game kept freezing my browser (chrome) whenever i got to 26/27 score :(

mockthebear says ...
Dec 18, 2015 @ 10:58pm

NOO XD i was hit by... an airplane LOL

23 says ...
Dec 19, 2015 @ 7:19am

That was fun! Like other people I had some trouble understanding what the right thing to do was - it seemed like since I couldn't control the swing direction I went back and forth and always risked falling. Then I found the easiest way to go up was by just using one of the climbers and letting the other one swing around :P

The game already looks great, with a little polishing on the gameplay I think you've got a winner here!

Dejvo says ...
Dec 19, 2015 @ 8:56am

the controls were a bit ify but niciely done otherwise

justinooncx says ...
Dec 19, 2015 @ 9:54am

A little wonky and buggy (it crashed on me once), but otherwise has a lot of potential!

domo_demo says ...
Dec 19, 2015 @ 10:53am

very cool, this is the kind of game i like :) need a relaxing music and maybe another sound fx when you die (players are too cute to scream like that =p) well done !

Wicked7000 says ...
Dec 19, 2015 @ 3:52pm

The game is really well done I like the mechanics (Just a note though the player kept freezing for me not quite sure why though) , Overall really well done some background music would be nice but I think the ambient sounds also fit nice as well Great work!

Great little game, remind me off a fun mario party game.
Congrats for the cool entry!

pianoman373 says ...
Dec 20, 2015 @ 9:17pm

It's ok but it gets boring pretty fast. I kinda wish the characters had something on them that designates which one as being space and enter. I kept getting confused on which one was which. A really great use of the theme though.

Almax27 says ...
Dec 20, 2015 @ 10:33pm

Awesome idea, behavior of characters can be a little unpredictable but other a solid entry. Great work guys!

Neat! Great game but it slowly gets repetitive.

hpearson2 says ...
Dec 22, 2015 @ 3:18am

was a blast to play and makes me wish I had someone to play with! Great theme tie in with two buttons. Humor and mood pleased me well.

Grammar Nazi: "relise buttons to fall." should be "release button to fall"

omaha says ...
Dec 22, 2015 @ 3:41am

This is wonderful. The ambient audio is great.

I would like to see a bit more play in the rope physics, the swinging motions started to get a bit repetitive after a while.

Drauthius says ...
Dec 22, 2015 @ 10:33am

I could just spam the space or enter key to make them climb, maybe that's intentional?

Troma says ...
Dec 23, 2015 @ 9:47pm

simple and great.

Nice job!

@hpearson2: Thanks, we corrected :)

Aaranos says ...
Dec 25, 2015 @ 3:45am

I like the game quite a bit. The gameplay fits the two button theme very smoothly and as most LD games it is short and replayable.

CaptainRed_ says ...
Dec 26, 2015 @ 7:54pm

Very simple and fun, I enjoyed this!

Cool and funny game - enjoyed it a lot.
And it's true - lot of fun with a friend.

Warboys says ...
Dec 27, 2015 @ 9:07pm

Nice little climber although I found the guys randomly being blown around (seemingly random at least) which tended to just help me stay alive forever!

I love the little quotes from the dudes as you're swinging, nice touch :)

Skywilly says ...
Dec 28, 2015 @ 1:42am

It's a really fun game, great job !

FrozenCow says ...
Dec 28, 2015 @ 1:52am

Wow! Nice game :D Controls feel good and it was fun to play. I only had a problem where Chrome would freeze every once in a while.

terryg says ...
Dec 28, 2015 @ 5:15am

I LOVED the game mechanics. I thought the learning process was very well done. I had a lot of fun playing this game. I think I played it for over half an hour. It would have been nice to have had some sort of save point so that progressing wasn't quite as harsh. A very excellent game. I loved the audio. The wind was perfect and the screams as they fell a nice touch.

Starspell says ...
Dec 28, 2015 @ 4:35pm

Best score after three tries: 163. This is a cute little game. I think that sometimes the physics and the collisions are a little ropey though. I'm fairly certain that I should have been hit by the obstacles many times before I actually was. Overall I found the game a little hard to grasp at first, just telling the player the two button may not be enough for those that haven't played QWOP or other keyboard twister games.

Clabbage says ...
Dec 29, 2015 @ 5:18am

Very fun and enjoyable game to play. I liked the concept a lot, but I found it to be really laggy, though that may be my fault for playing on a poor computer.

Shurty says ...
Dec 29, 2015 @ 12:26pm

Nice, i took a lot of pleasure ! Really nice work :)

MercuryXGames says ...
Dec 29, 2015 @ 3:53pm

I have no idea what these two guys were thinking, climbing up this huge-ass mountain. The game is fun and I love the ridiculousness in this game: Whales falling down, planes crashes right in to you and the best part is when they fall they have a photoshoot together as they are falling many meters above the surface. Amazing game :D

Tyler says ...
Dec 29, 2015 @ 11:44pm

Great everything, though the fluidity of the swinging could be a bit smoother. Really enjoyed it, though! Reminds me of part of the game "Brothers: Tale of Two Sons". Didn't play with a second person, but that sounds like a good thing to do soon!

ImYellowFish says ...
Dec 30, 2015 @ 10:58am

I love this idea! Easy to play and very fun!! There are some problems with physics engine i guess. When my characters get hit by snow or something, they are pushed up instead of going down. Besides, as long as I taps two key, there is little chance to fail. which make it a bit too easy. Nice work and wish to see more!

Ludipe says ...
Dec 30, 2015 @ 10:17pm

Hey! Liked this game a lot :)
Reminds me to one of the challenges on "Brothers: A tale of two sons".

Simple, yet polished and fun, well done!

rodobodolfo says ...
Jan 1, 2016 @ 11:59am

Great! This is the kind of game that I'd love to play with my brother, constantly swearing at each other for messing up. Good job with this, it's always nice to find a fun game on here.

_benhumphries says ...
Jan 2, 2016 @ 1:28am

The controls and mechanics are a little hard to grasp, I'm not really sure what to do. More guidance from the beginning would probably help with that. I thought the graphics were nice, but the game would run slowly sometimes (on my pretty beefy computer).

Xanjos says ...
Jan 2, 2016 @ 1:33am

Pretty hard if you play this on your own but I like the mechanics a lot. Also, the random stuff falling down was quite funny.

I didn't understand what space and enter really do ? Do you have to tap alternatively ? space is for left, enter for right ? do you have to hold down or just tap the buttons ?

Love the look. Took a bit to figure out the controls but after figuring them out, I like it.

Pro:
+ Cool mechanics
+ Very nice audio and graphics
Con:
- Some hazards are really difficult to dodge (like the plane)
Obs:
o My best was 73
o I found a bit strange that when the partner swings to the other side the both fall, but I guess it's to avoid continuous swings

Great job!

I think this was the best incorporation of the two-button theme that I have seen. It was not a forced mechanic like most of the other game (i.e. able to do the game some other way - a better way - but forcing two-button controls). Your's flowed very nicely using two buttons. I definitely think that you should continue working on this post-comp.

Good job!

It is a really great concept and sometimes I ran into rope-snatching situations sometimes it just takes time to climb back. I got 58 for the first try and 116 on the second run, while I falling a lot. A love the jokes that arrives with a warning sign.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
