A fun little game that made a nice framing device for playing other fun little games! It was kind of annoying that the way to quite a game (pressing ESC) was further right than the first game, so you won't see it before starting to play Pong. I figured it out, but still.

Seriously,a nice little game,the graphics are appealing but it didnt have much beyond the first room,which is a shame since it would have been funny to see other "ancient technology". Small side note:Asteroid bullets in the original game dont transcend the borders. All around a good game!

I love it! The game just feels "right" as everything fits together - the art, the music and so on. However, I have to agree with @jayemjee - the controls should have been made clear earlier. A really nice game (or game container rather) though!

This was fun to play, and looked nice (even though asteroids wasn't accurate in terms of graphics, as the asteroids game used a vector screen), though it was a bit short (although I can't blame you for that, as it was done in 72 hours... :P).

Good job! The graphics are really nicely done, and the theme is creative as well. I like it!

Cool entry, it was fun playing some old classics again.

Nice music, and a lot of good art pieces.

Thoughtful take on the theme. Congratulations, making 3 minigames inside the full game sounds like hard work!

Thanks for all the feesbacks! I'm really happy you find the art good, because I wasn't very happy when I made it ^^
@Skye I know it says it's a Jam game on the Feedback Friends minisite but it's Compo game actually. But still thanks for the feedback :)

Well, that was something...
It fits the theme and it is a neat idea!

Good interpretation of the theme.
In asteroid sometimes an asteroid appear just on the ship. Another room would have been cool.

It feels more and more like ludum dare should be about giving people a 1 minute experience. I liked the animation, something none of my games have had. Short and Sweet.

Hi, nice game and congratulations ! Simple mechanics that still offered a decent amount of challenge.We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #36. We made the same thing at the previous jam.

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. (you can already find several games from the jam there)

Oh, we managed the same idea! And I really like your game, the graphics, the game and, of course, the idea ;)
Good good job and nice vlog!

Lovely graphics, super nice concept! I included it in my compilation video series of Ludum Dare 36 games, if you’d like to take a look :)

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. Many solo participants 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.
