Who would have suspected you needed to be so agile to fight off hordes of frigid demon snowmen? Good thing the giant alien rock em sock em robot is here to uh….. Save the day?

Nothing quite says wednesday (other than “Hump Day”) quite like fighting off lich spawned demons, helping a friendly snowman keep his head, and slaying some colossal ancient war giants. That or just waking up to pancakes. But why not have both?

One does not simply escape a roving pack of night dwelling demons. At least not without a Coleman lantern that I got at the swap meet last night. But that can be a bit too spooky for my blood. Thankfully we’ve got a part of fun and very goofy shooters to relax and drive us mad before bed time eh?

This rounds theme of “Entire Game on One Screen” seemed like a tall order at first. Convenient that Ludum Dare participants are the sharpest Indies on the block. Creating amazing Space SIM style games, Bakery Battlers, and a relaxing Bird defense missions.

Five Amazing LD#28 Games You Totally Need to Check Out

Looking for some awesome games to play and rate? Here’s a collection of a few hidden gems I’ve run into that are absolutely brilliant!

1:   You can become only one!!1 – by multikorv

In addition to being an absolutely brilliant concept, this is a shining example of how edutainment/learning games can be fun. If expanded upon, this has the potential to be a fantastic way to teach problem solving and math skills. I would totally drop money on a full version with a level editor/sharable custom levels. The game has a brilliantly paced tutorial and punchy, crisp controls. The way the player accelerates through gates feels so well polished, and the background beat keeps you in the action!

2. Wraith – by AgentParsec

The atmosphere this game creates is simply unreal, and chilling. I was on the edge of my seat while playing the entire time. The textures are a bit on the simplistic side, but do not detract from the distilled, raw feelings the maze elicits. It grips you, and doesn’t let go. It also supports the Oculus Rift, if you have nerves of fricking steel, which is another fantastic touch.

3. Solid Heart – by Dustedge

The game is built upon a very solid mechanic and presents an interesting twist on the action-puzzler genre. There’s a lot of subtle visual polish as well as some challenging level design, which explores the variety of dimensions the “bouncing core” mechanic has to offer. My only complaint would be the slightly slippery physics. There is a lot of potential here for an awesome title with a bit more visual and audio polish. Overall, a solid prototype!

4. John Power – by Anoarith

A well-executed, refreshing take on the “you can only have one power”-style entries. Where John Power succeeds is, in a word, diversity. There are a large variety of powers in the game, but you must choose from a pool of three at the beginning of a level. I finished the game, and immediately wanted more. The finale is beyond words, and plays with the mechanics established in the previous levels in a clever way. Expertly designed.

5. Collector’s Quest – by Crigs

Link: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-28/?action=preview&uid=30740

Collector’s Quest has a neat, unique mechanic that is explained wonderfully through level design. There’s also a lot of nice touches that give the player character some charm and personality. Another example of a game that I wouldn’t mind seeing more levels from!
