These are my 5 favourite games so far (out of 150).

Budget Squad - deepnight (48h)

1

This game blew my mind. You switch between two submarines, one that is invincible and holds a light source, and another which has a gun, but is very weak. The art in this game is stunning and the unique gameplay very engaging.

Snake in a Cube - OU GDA (jam)

2

 

Snake, but more confusing! A cool and well polished twist on the classic game (with great music).

CLRS – acatcalledfrank (48h)

3

 

Mix colours and defend the blob! Crazy and addictive.

Cubique Noire – Detocroix (48h)

4

 

A very stylish minimalist crime thriller. Featuring cubes.

CHAMELEON RUN – Split82 (48h)

5

 

I must admit I’m a sucker for these kinds of games. Very simple, but fast paced, slick and so very addictive.

 

Hope you enjoyed these games as much as I did.

Cheers – Seb (my game)

I’ve played and rated 100 Ludum Dare entries so far, and along the way I’ve found a fair few games that are really a lot of fun which I’d like to share with you all. What follows, in no particular order, are my favourite games from Ludum Dare #23

————————————————————————————————————————————

Tiny Wizard – kebabskal

Actually, this one probably is my favourite. I love the bite-sized levels, slow difficulty increase, and of course the general gameplay. It’s really very satisfying to simply shoot and move around, and beating each level feels great!

Dude, where’s my planet – Zamando

Beautiful to look at, though challenging.

Celia – Finn Stokes

Stunning graphics, a cool core mechanic and a lot of fun.

Inside My Radio – TurboDindon

A unique and innovative take on music games. It’s good to see a music game in Ludum Dare. Extremely well polished.

————————————————————————————————————————————

Prince of Leaves – evilseanbot

A feel good game. Cute graphics and an original bespoked music track which make you want to play all the way through to the end.

————————————————————————————————————————————

Corebound – Ryusui

Challenging at times, but very rewarding. Unique gameplay mechanic which is sort of an automatic twist on VVVVVV’s gravity system, allowing circular orbiting movements.

————————————————————————————————————————————

Lililput – Incredible Ape

Amazing pixel art and educational fun! Learn to type like a pro while destroying aliens!

http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=preview&uid=12165

 

————————————————————————————————————————————

Astro Break – hulahulahest

One of the most compelling games in the competition. Powerups and new weapons can keep you blowing up rocks all day!

————————————————————————————————————————————

Little City – dustmyte

Hilarious game with entertaining dialogue. Nice black and white visuals as well.

http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=preview&uid=12796

 

————————————————————————————————————————————

Microscopia – azurenimbus

The premise is simple: Navigate to the center of the screen. The real question is, where are you? Very innovative.

And, I may as well shamelessly plug my own game too!

ANT SURF HERO: THE SURFENING – Jigxor (Me!)

http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-23/?action=rate&uid=3289

 

Thank you to everyone who has submitted awesome games. I’ve had a lot of fun playing them so far, and I can’t wait to play some more! I hope you all do the same.

There Is A Picture  – MortisGhost

probably the best use of audio in the whole competition. lots of analog blips and bloops, really feels like a 60’s sci-fi show. charming little game.

Stade 2 – 30dogs

posting this here simply because of the visuals. the game itself is kind of difficult but the whole atmosphere is great.

Going Rogue – FrankieSmileShow

this game is really, really great.

Wulcan – leafo

a very pretty, and clever game, in a subtle way.

Cloud Realm – Hempuli

i really love the whole feel of this one. tiny sky people/settlements, destruction of mechanical dragons, lots of whooshing and swooping noises. really nice little game.

so go on, what did i miss?
