Ludum Dare 31: The Paper Dance

The Paper Dance  is not exactly a game, it’s more a kind of six-minute interactive video where you control a dancer who can kick other dancers while is doing her performance. The basic idea is kick out any dancer who try to ruin your choreography.

The concept art, the music, and the way the whole game is designed make it deserve a try. Very original idea, it’s a pity the gameplay is so limited, otherwise great job.

Ludum Dare 31: Mr Fish’s Awful Adventure

We aren’t sure Mr Fish’s Awful Adventure fits in a strict way this year Ludum Dare theme, Entire Game on One Screen, but what the heck, is a pretty awesome game with a lot of job behind it. In this platformer you control Mr Fish who is going to discover that the world is far more dangerous than he ever thought. The game has puzzles, traps, new abilities to get and a difficulty which ramps up perfectly. The only cons, if we have to look for one, it is too short… but again, it has been developed in a weekend! No doubt, this game is a masterpiece and we haven’t stop playing until we finished.

Ludum Dare 31: Macho Knight

Macho Knight is simple and funny and we like it because of that.

We play the role of a Macho Knight who must save the princess from hooligans who are trying to kidnap her. The problem is we just have a shield, so the only way to fight against these hordes of enemies is pushing them out of the fort. Enemies come from left and right, so we have to move around the screen constantly flinging them off.

The art is pretty cool and remind of those old 8-bit games.

The way of playing is very suitable for touching devices (mobile phones, tablets, etc.) , so from here we encourage his developer to do the port, this game could be the next Flappy Bird,  Who knows?

Ludum Dare 31: Mind The Gap

The idea behind the Mind The Gap is simple: cross the bridge… a one-bamboo-stick bridge in which keep balance is not an easy thing. So that’s it, you have to reach the other side before your balance bar reaches zero. The game has several levels of increasing difficulty and it’s very addictive and easy to play, plus have quite good pixel art. Definitely worth a try!

Ludum Dare 31: Who Done it?

Who Done It? brings us a fresh video game concept, here you play the role of a detective trying to find out who murdered the mayor among a few people in a room. To do that, you have to question the suspects and decide who is the murderer base on their reactions. The idea is pretty cool and fits perfect with the Ludum Dare theme of this year: Entire Game on One Screen. Of course, the game needs more work to become a great one, but it has the potential and it’s without any doubt, an awesome job.

Ludum Dare 31: The Last Panda

The first thing that comes to mind when you play The Last Panda is: Wow! This was made it in just 48 hours!? Good art, good music and an addictive gameplay in a classic formula: protect your treasure chest. The whole game is very polished and it’s a really pleasure to play it.

It can be argued that the game is hard, that is impossible to leave the chest because of the number ghosts, that the difficulty grows exponentially… but true is game’s awesome for being made in only 48 hours, and we are pretty sure his developer will fix the design flaws as soon as this Ludum Dare finishes. Summing up, we love it!
