Didn't had time to do sound, I'm kinda sad for that, but I'm happy to submit it on time. Sorry for the ending awful ending, I would need at least 3 hours to do what I've planned. I'll DEFINITELY do a post-compo version to make up for that ;)

Very good game. Honestly, I really liked those wings and this "demon" kind of attack.

My reactions through the game:

*Game Starts*
*Notices character Running*
Me: Okay running, running, wait for me.
*Keeps Running*
Me: Running.. why are we running?
*Keeps Running*
*Other Character Stops*
Me: Should I keep going..?
*Steps on button*

Very nice game! Nice graphics, who needs sound anyways haha but no really it's a great game can't wait for the Post-Compo version!!

I didn't make it to the end because it was too hard, the enemies are tricky to kill sometimes cause they move so fast. I will try again later though after I play some more enties.

Nice game! Liked the attack a lot.

That was some interesting monster fights once you get used to the attack. But the game is rather short and there's no gameover sequence. Being stuck when you reach 0 life force me to refresh bowser between each tries

Nice art, and interesting gameplay. I was a little confused because when my health reached zero I could still hit but I could not move, so I was not really sure I was actually dead. Is that a bug?

The game over is definitely a bug, the first times I tried it was working properly. I probably messed up with it after that and didn't tested it.

Awesome gameplay! Very stylish. I did notice that when you die there is no respawn option, I would like that. I also noticed that if you try to return to the room where the guy died your character disappears. Other than that, really awesome!

Lost all my hearts but game didn't restart. I can still attack -- is this a bug?

The animations are really cool, and I love the minimalist style. Felt fun to play too.

Web version wouldn't work the first few times tho-- like neither character ran in

Felt very smooth and polished, and it was really nice to crush those robot things! Well done!

Cool game! Nice graphics and fun story! Specially liked the transformation and slow-mo sequences~ Had same reaction of @calzep kkkk I had no problems with controls though.

Congrats on your entry! I'll check again for the post-compo later!

I think you need to write some instructions somewhere, because I didn't know you could attack until I read the comments above :P But really nice graphics and animation, you really have talent here!

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

Really great visuals! Web version didnt worked too well but maybe because im in linux... a shame you couldnt add some sounds.

Really nice! I loved the little intro-scene where your friend gets zapped, very sad! With a bit more fleshing out it could be a really cool game. The first level with enemies was a bit sparse without much variety, but pretty solid.

For some reason one time when I died in mid-air, my person just got stuck in place and the game didn't restart. I had to reload the page to continue playing.

The game is short, but it has a lot of potential. It feels so right! The controls are very responsive. Too bad you ran out of time, I would love to see more of this! Good luck and keep up the good work!

I'm loving those hairstyles, graphics and animation. Didn't think the character was really shapeshifting, but the atack is really cool. Nice game!

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 ( 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.
