A downloadable game for Windows

BLOCKADE is our submission for the 42nd Ludum Dare, with the theme “Running out of space”.

Ludum Dare entry: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/42/blockade

We decided to go for a ‘match 3’ style game, with a platformer twist. In BLOCKADE, you (the player) control a little hooded character called Ortu. Your aim is not to run out of space.

Blocks rise beneath your feet, trying to crush you against the ceiling.

You break the blocks by lining up 3 or more of the same coloured blocks vertically or horizontally, but beware the blocks rise instantly when you jump.

Occasionally, a special block will appear, that can eliminate entire rows when destroyed.


 Controls

Keyboard: use arrows/WASD to move, and Space to jump.

Controller:  Left stick to move, and the A button to jump.

 

We hope you enjoy this one as much as we enjoyed making it!
