(You can check our entry here)

I like to write posts promoting some entries. To be honest, I find it that this edition has a really good level overall, for the moment I haven’t found any game that had a rate less than 3/5. I am really enjoying it, and here are some of the games I played and I like the most.

I am looking for more games to play, post yours on a comment!

Hi everyone!

Ludum Dare 32 is about to finish, and I just want to show you some games

that made me enjoy like a child.

Nuclear Autumn by phi6 – Jam Entry

I´m in love with this game. A whole experience.

……………..

X-11 “Gust Gunner” by cowboycolor – Jam Entry

8 bit platformer like. Great music, great gameplay and really cool to use

the leaf-blower. One of my favourites!

………………

Underground Hangovers by Deconstructeam – Jam Entry

I think is one of the best video games song i’ve ever heard. The pixel art

AMAZING.

Fantastic game.

……………..

Avian Days by esayitch – Compo Entry

Man, this game is really hard, but you can’t stop playing it.

…………….

Mario and the Poetry by gruhn – Compo Entry

This game has something really special, a great mood. Play and be happy doing it.

……………

Hey! and don´t forget, if you have time after playing those great games, to play mine.

Scream(But not too much) by Embalaje – Jam Entry

A metroidvania like “game”, with screaming mechanics and nice pixel art.

Out of the 101 games I played so far, 15 stand out. Click on the pictures to try the games.

1. Heart Star (AdventureIslands)

What it is: Retro, balanced, polished and complete with fantastic pixel graphics and short, compelling puzzles.

Why I like it: There is something nostalgic about it.

This is the one game I saw which could be sellable as is.

Heart Star (AdventureIslands)

 

2. Planetary Marriage Counseling (WeaselZone)

What it is: A hilarious game where you and your spouse are chained together and go on dates.   Works well as a two player co-op game.

Why I like it: It’s fun even when things are going wrong. Epic when things are going right.

It made me divorce my wife over and over again….for the fun of it.

Planetary Marriage Counseling (WeaselZone)

 

3. Dino Bolt (GeorgeBroussard)

What it is: An endless runner where dinosaurs are escaping a zoo helicopter.

Why I like it: It is fun and addictive. It shows you don’t need a complex idea to make a great game.

I lost time playing it.

Dino Bolt (GeorgeBroussard)

 

4. Mammoth Monkey Mole (ehtd)

What it is: A puzzler where different creatures have different abilities.

Why I like it: The sounds are hilarious and the puzzles have a good learning curve where you never feel it is too difficult.

You get to play a mammoth, a monkey and a mole. Need I say more.

Mammoth Monkey Mole (ehtd)

 

5. Hop Hop Planet (SnoutUp)

What it is: A 2-d take on Super Mario Galaxy.

Why I like it: It has great look, with lots of variety and a good replay factor.

All the things that can kill you look friendly, but looks can be deceiving.

Hop Hop Planet (SnoutUp)

 

6. Space Breakers (DJWizardCop)

What it is: Breakout with a Space Invader twist.

Why I like it: My wife will kill me if I don’t.

My wife wouldn’t give the keyboard back and she did the same when my daughter was rating it.   In fact she is probably still playing it now (I’m hungry – she hasn’t fed me this week).

Space Breakers (DJWizardCop)

 

7. Red Thread (NickZangus)

What it is: Two linked characters have to negotiate obstacles to reach each other.

Why I like it: The looks that the characters give each other when they die – it’s those little attentions to detail and some wicked, mean puzzles that make this game.

It’s cute and deadly.

Red Thread (NickZangus)

 

8. Galactic Bonding (alvarop)

What it is: You are a baby planet copying your dad planet’s facial expressions.

Why I like it: It’s short, hilarious and could be played by a toddler.

My daughter (not a toddler) keeps following me around trying to copy my facial expressions.

Galactic Bonding (alvarop)

 

9. Stanley Squeaks and the Emerald Burrito (Two Scoop Games)

What it is: A puzzle platformer where you play a hungry hamster.

Why I like it:  Cute as hell, and a great game mechanic.

I kept killing the hamster just to hear its death scream.

Stanley Squeaks and the Emerald Burrito (Two Scoop Games)

 

10. Lethal Reflection (Steve)

What it is: Geometry Wars.

Why I like it: Geometry Wars.

By the guy who wrote Geometry Wars. Need I say more.

Lethal Reflection (Steve)

 

11. Space Train (SupSuper)

What it is: Snake on a train…. in space.

Why I like it: Quirky and amusing.  It’s fun, but you really don’t care that it’s difficult.

I wore my train driver’s outfit while I played.

Space Train (SupSuper)

 

12. Burger Beat (TrickFishPie)

What it is: A running game where you bash the keyboard to operate your runner.

Why I like it: It is so bizarre that you have to admire the mind that created it.

Is it wrong that I find it hilariously funny when your man fails to jump a hurdle?

Burger Beat (TrickFishPie)

 

13. Orange (JaJ)

What it is: A moral tale in a Zelda-esque world.

Why I like it: The use of colour is good.  It does not feel worthy despite the subject matter.

A thoughtful idea, burdened by an overly long maze.

Orange (JaJ)

 

14. PRISM (rantt)

What it is: A puzzle platformer where they keep changing the rules.

Why I like it: There is a heavy emphasis on the puzzles themselves, not the packaging (which is not missed).

When I first saw it, I thought “not another of these…” but its strength lies in its puzzles.

PRISM (rantt)

 

15. Savior: Saver of Souls (John Drury)

What it is: Like Super Crate Box with rising lava.

Why I like it: Fast paced, short, and a classic example of the genre.

If only I was as good at this game as I was at killing time with it.

Savior: Saver of Souls (John Drury)

ORIGINAL BLOG-POST

What’s up guys! Today I have something really cool for you. As I mentioned before, I played and watched several hundreds of LD30 entries. There are tons of cool games, but I want to share with you my personal Top15 of Ludum Dare 30. It contains entries from both 48 hours Compo and Jam. If you didn’t play some this games yet, then you definitely should. They’re all worth it. Btw, I don’t insist and don’t try to convince you. I just want to share my personal opinion and I hope you will find something interesting here. All entries unsorted and appear in (almost) random order.

So, enough talking, let’s check and play some cool games! Theme – Connected worlds.

my best finds

Some cool people made a game called The Find, which is about fishing some URLs. You should play it (and rate it)

They also made a tool to build our own The Find, with our own links.

So I used it to compile my best ludum dare 29 finds for now (and I included my own game, the one in the screenshot inside the screenshot)

Play/Discover here. (Mash UP to get the fishes)

Also, all of these games are/will be reviewed in french on my blog.

101 entries rated : My top 20 (well…top 19 + my game)

Posted by (twitter: @oujevipo)

I’ve never been that lazy to rate LD entries. On previous LDs I always rated more than 200 games, but strangely, this rating fever has cooled down, and now, I prefer to spend more time on each game and try to give more constructive feedbacks. Maybe it’s for the best.

Anyway, here are my favorites so far, the ones I already reviewed in french on my blog http://oujevipo.fr. This list doesn’t include all of my favorites, some of them (especially Jam entries) being too obvisouly great for needing a little push up. (Sorry for my bad english by the way, I’m not even sure “push up” DOES mean something).

This list doesn’t really care if the game is compo or jam, neither if it fits well the theme but I added this :

😀 : Excellent use of the theme

:) : Good use of the theme

:( : bad/no use of the theme

(click the pictures to play/rate)

 

#1 Cure 48 😀

#2 Tale of Scale :(

#3 Monologuer 😀
