Ludum Dare 35: Splitter Critters

“Splitter Critters” by RAC7 Games (Jesse Ringrose & Jason Ennis).

“Split and shift the shape of the world to get those critters home safe.”

Besides the adorable character art, I enjoyed the excellent level and puzzle design of “Splitter Critters”. You have to figure out how to use the slick cutting and shifting mechanics to your advantage – without losing your critters to lava or enemies, of course! What makes this task a bit more difficult is the fact, that the critters have different behaviors: Some just jump off the edge, others are pretty brutal and then there are the ones that just want to chill. All of these features as well as concepts combined make this jam entry one of the best puzzle games created for the thirty-fifth Ludum Dare. >>PLAY
