You need to find three crystals. They may be on the surface or beneath.

Since I went out of time to create cool levels, it's not very hard.

I like the graphics, but this game is extremely short. Either that, or I missed something. Still, it's a game, so congratulations with making a game in 48 hours!

The graphics are good and the scrolling is very smooth. I like the mixture between top-down and side view. The game is quite short, but the function is there. Nice one!

Solid proof of concept, you should put some more time into it!

I like the graphics, and the way you control the character with the mouse...but it was a little bit on the short side.

This is a very nice proof of concept that could easily turn into a pretty cool game with a couple of more mechanics and some nice level design.

Well done.

Very good graphics. The idea of controlling the platformer bit with the mouse was a bit interesting :P

Very short. The idea is good but need to be longer to be really satisfactory. Good job, anyway!.

Could have been something neat if it was longer than 15 seconds. Nice graphics at least!

It certainly looks lovely, just a shame you ran out of time to make it harder :)

Extremely short and without win conditions--what's here is very good, but unfortunately there simply isn't enough to really rate it on. Beautiful art direction and an interesting-looking character. I think you might get more out of controlling with the keyboard than the mouse?

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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.

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.

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 about 20 games to improve your visibility.

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.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
