Last weekend was just super awesome…it was Ludum Dare 23 - The ultimate 48 hour compo. The theme was ‘Tiny World’ and I was in this time (my 2nd LD). I chose to make a game on flash platform using the Flashpunk game library. The game is called SAVE ME in which you control a cute alien which is attacked by some evil species. You can jump on planets and even hop from one planet to another collecting the game power-ups.
Some points about this LD for me were:
Gave more time and priority to gameplay.
Drew quite a lot pixel art for the first time (it was fun).
Tried some new game mechanics.
Integrated almost all game elements (sounds really matter).
Play and rate my entry.
Now that the compo is over, I have played around 60 entries out which here are my best picks (in no order):
**Memento XII - deepnight: **As always, this entry by deepnight has mind blowing graphics. The pixel art is really good and gives a very nice feel to the game. Though being a point and click adventure type, I was not that a fan of the gameplay.
Astro Break - hulahulahest: This was a really well made contra style game. I loved the sprites and the whole idea of having a shoot’emup on a lil planet was greet. A game to play for powerups!
Soul Searchin’ - MaximSchoemaker: A 100% into the the theme entry. A very well executed idea where the player can be shrunk and grown to clear levels inside levels…A nice level design too.
**Nook - PoV: **Another shrink/grow type jam entry which wonderful graphics and animation. The game is fun to play and effects are neat.
So go ahead, play them, rate them and be cool :)
If you wanna check out my game’s source, it can be found on github.
Till next time, cya!
