Ludum Dare 40: Jazzy Beats

“Jazzy Beats” by Whales and Games (Jorge M. Carvalho, José Sánchez & Robin Couwenberg).

“Reach the peak of idol stardom! Your rival is sending up her fans to […] push you out of the industry. What can you do? Well, punch them so hard they become your fans.”

Although I was confused with the idea of hitting the fans to love you, this game captures perfectly the idea of ‘the more, the worse’. With a simple control, we must avoid that the fans of your rival give you a powerful beating while we use our abilities so that they happen to our side. However, more and more fans will arrive, and you will find yourself running around the stage with an army of little blue men behind you while you wait for the skills to come out of the cooldown. The stress is real.

The art of this game has fascinated me, it’s very polished and with a lot of personality, which seems to be a usual feature in the games of Whales and Games. They have managed to give their game a very professional finish, so I’’ll definitely remain attentive to their future projects. >>PLAY
