While playing through the games for Ludum Dare 26, I found an awesome little puzzler called Fractured by dalbinblue. The game features a really rad song that I decided to remix (with dalbinblue’s permission, of course). Check it out on Soundcloud!

As I play through the games of LD25, I’m making a list of games that I want to showcase. Once that list hits 5 entries, I’ll do a RAD GAME ROUNDUP. I’ll be handing out trophies and hopefully raising awareness for games that deserve some love!

So let’s get started with my first pick of LD25…

—————————————–

STOP HIM NOW!
by TijmenTio
48 Hour Compo
STOP HIM NOW!

This is one of the first games I played and I honestly didn’t expect much from the screenshots. THEN IT STARTED. WHOA, MAN! It’s a reverse horizontal shmup where you control different birds in an attempt to stop the hero. Different birds have different skills, and there’s even a reverse boss battle! To put it simply… this game is rad as crap.

TWISTED NEIGHBORHOOD

This one brought a smile to my face that grew and grew until finally I looked like some kind of demented serial killer as I hunched over the keyboard cackling uncontrollably. YOU PLAY AS A TORNADO!!!

RUDE BEAR

This game is hilarious and the art style is fantastic. The gameplay leaves a bit to be desired, but you gotta experience this thing. The characters are little cutout puppets on sticks and it has this sarcastic #YOLOSWAG atmosphere that just reeks of villainy. The soundtrack puts you in the mood to HUSTLE.

HAPPY LITTLE MURDER FRIENDS
by farmergnome
48 Hour Compo

This is probably my favorite game thus far. It is simply phenomenal. Think Retro City Rampage but with a much ‘smoother’ aesthetic. This is incredibly impressive for 48 hours. Hell, this is impressive for a week. It’s a total blast and there’s tons of randomness to keep it refreshing.

A GORGEOUS reverse shmup. Stunning art. It’s missing a few pieces to make it perfect, but DAMN it’s close. I think I’ll end up seeing a lot of reverse shmups by the end of this compo, but TYRANOFORCE is probably going to be at the top of that list.

—————————————–

So that’s it until next time! Keep playing and rating, and share your favorite games with the rest of us. With over 1,300 games to play… I’m sure we could all use a little help.
