Ludum Dare 33 "You are the Monster" Thread!
« on: September 02, 2015, 09:02:33 PM »
Here we go!

Less revved up this time, but I feel a tradition I have to poke my way at least a little around the LD's.

First up is one that's gonna be darn tough to beat in the Mood dept.

The thing is, it's a fairly simple "tree decision" adventure, and it makes or breaks if there's actually a way out.

I poked at it, but I wasn't up to trying to grind it out. And I don't know the mood here, if people want "spoilers" or to do it themselves. Maybe if someone finds a win ending, they could use that spoiler tag we have here.

This section goes for some quick posts without a big writeup:

- Play as a ghost in PacMan! (Amazing that Namco isn't grumpy! I think I saw someone else got yelled at by Nintendo.)

The web version doesn't seem to work though. I had to download the Windows version.
Rated Phoenix Easy if you use strategy.

I played a game like this many years ago called "PacMan vs." It was up to 5 players. One player would play as PacMan and the others would play as the ghosts. The Pac-Man player could see the entire screen but the ghost players could only see within a relatively small circle around themselves.

Okay, this is one of the early fun finds for me in Ludum Dare 33 "You are the Monster".

The art is almost not to be believed for so short a time - I think the devs said they borrowed stuff, but it's still grand!

It's pretty well balanced too. I got to 3600ish points, and I'm sure someone with good reflexes and the patterns down can get over 5000. It really wards well timed combos!

It is a Windows download with an installer, but it's worth it. The devs stayed focused and didn't try to over-do it, and worked hard to get it smooth. I didn't see many bugs. There's possibly one where you shoot the big flame and your health keeps going down, but that's minor.

So a lot of fun!

Wow. Crazy game! It kind of reminds of of Defend Your Castle.
