Tombed by dessgeega

I’ve linked to the update of tombed.  Apparently the author felt the Z and Spacebar could be used along with the shift and also removed blur.  Okay this is neat and pixelly.  You play Danger Jane as she tries to dig her way to treasure.  Only there’s an ADVANCING WALL OF DOOM, DUH duh DUHHHHH!  Okay well I’m beat after that.  Essentially you use the shift key to dig and arrow keys to move.  Not so tough, except the huge spikes just keep coming down and are relentless.  I couldn’t keep up, eventually I came to a part that was too hard and the wall overtook me.  Graphics are as I said neat and pixelly, and the sounds, sounded like they almost came from the pc speaker, except they were coming out of the regular speakers.  Nice little retro game.  Get it here: tombed.

“I’m done!” by rob

MiniReview3SS Okay okay, so “I’m Done!” is not actually a title.  Why did I put it there?  Well that’s what the post of rob’s final entry for the Ludum Dare 48 hour compo #14 was titled and since he didn’t have an actual game title other than ld14, I decided “I’m done!” is the title to this game.  No.  You CAN’T change it now.  I don’t care if you’ve thought up a better title by now.  This is the way it is.  A quick note, rob’s entry is number 3 instead of 4, because he had a flash version, and I managed to play that.  Okay so basically you move with the arrow keys.  Jump with the ‘A’ button.  Fire with the ‘S’ button.  Pretty simple in execution, just three levels.  Basically you have these walls with very fine hats.  You have to find a way to defeat them.  I won’t tell you how, but you can shoot them.  Jump and shoot, shoot and jump.  Actually I find this entry fairly original.  Play this game it’s not too hard, and it’s pretty fun.  The graphics are fairly adequate  for a 2 day flash game.  I’m sorry to say the music is highly annoying.  So I just played it silently.  Anyhoo have fun.  Get it here: I’m Done!

Mind wall by Seth Robinson aka mrfun

MiniReview2SS My second mini-review is for a game called Mind Wall from the 14th Ludum Dare 48 hour compo.  Okay so the goal of the mind wall is to remove one block of an advancing, floating “wall” so that the piece in the lower left corner of the screen fits through it.  You know that game show where the beautiful women contort themselves into odd positions in order to fill through a human sized hole in a wall being pulled down a line towards them, usually with a pool of water at one end when they happen to fail to fit through?  Yep it’s like that, except no beautiful women.  Which is rather sad.  But the game is rather good.  As some have said it’s a bit too short.  I have a feeling that if Mr. Robinson added more levels and changed it up a little he could probably sell that thing.  Fun to play.  You should try it!
