Very nice game. Audio was absolutely excellent. Graphics also. One thing, some of the first levels were a bit long, without much change in difficulty. Overall, brilliant though :D

Great graphics, awesome music, fun gameplay.
But it seriously lacks checkpoints.

I like the graphic style, and music. The gameplay started to get repetitive. Flying the dragon felt really nice.

Pretty cool game / games, I felt that there were some interesting parts, and I like the idea of multiple minigames being shifts. Style is nice too.

Congratulation for your game, one of the best I've tested so far :D

Graphics and audio are great, the gameplay is nice too, refreshed on every shapeshift :)

Little advice : try to give feedback when the hero hurts the enemys in the first level, my first two runs I thought the game was bugging or I played wrong ^^

Overall very good game :)

Nice game! Loved the graphics and audio. The gameplay was a bit repetetive, but anyways, great game!

Nice game. It looks nice and the music is good, too.

Needs some checkpoints, tough.

To some of the above comments. I could add checkpoints but I feel that would break the dynamic of the game. Constantly grinding in one place gets frustraining after some time but having checkpoints will make it too easy and short. The way I have it now forces the user to think fast and adapt to his new environment.

As others mentioned a checkpoint or level system would have been nice. HOWEVER, I could do without if the segments were more clearly linked and you'd have to switch more between forms based on surroundings. Kind of segmented right now. Fun!

Very enjoyable. Solid game.

Nice set of multiple minigames, it has that "wario ware" feel of never quite knowing what will come next and you quickly need to figure it out or lose. Nice and coherent graphics and an overall solid entry!

Well done :D

Dark Souls 3: Ludlum Dare Edition. Great game!

In the first level I had trouble figuring when did I hit the enemies. I think some of the levels were a bit long. Also when I died in the snake level and didn't restart for a while it changed my level forward.

Love the graphics and music; checkpoints would be nice.

first level was really slow paced, others were quite fun

The start was a bit slow but the flying was fun (though not so challenging), then I died and had to start over... I wish there were checkpoints ^^'

Neat job! I really like how they're a bunch of minigames! Nice job!

Great music and visuals! I think the first few levels were a bit long as some of the other people said, but getting through them to the later ones was worth it. Pretty good entry!

GREAT Music and good graphics!!
But the game is too easy, for instance in the second level you can just stay at the ground to evade nearly everything and as a fish you can swim to the top and no enemy will get you.

Cool game but it should really checkpoint after each level! Especially the first level is kind of boring to replay, after that they are a lot more fun though

Neat game! I included it in my video compilation series of Ludum Dare games, if you’d like to check them out :)

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.
