Yellow Goo Love

(external link)

The objective of Yellow Goo Love is to guide an elastic goo ball to the end position marked by a red flag, simply by using the mouse to launch it in a forward or upward trajectory motion. A new tile, rule or obstacle is introduced every few levels, although the game does end rather quickly since there are only a total of twenty stages to play in this build.

Yokegee bears similarities to Nintendo's Balloon Fight, though objects in the game are represented by pixels instead of 2D sprites. Hold space to gain altitude, release to dive.

To start a game, guide your pixel towards the word easy. Avoid other pixels, ceilings or floors while floating from right to left in order to maintain your health and advance to the next level.

Each difficulty setting presents twenty stages, and a small completion percentage is awarded for every attempt. New options are revealed when the player acquires fifteen, twenty-five and thirty percent completion.

You Cannot Die
Matt LefflerAction/Arcade0.16 MBClick here to download

You Cannot Die is a Western-themed action game that Matt Leffler is currently working on, with a demo of first area already available to download and try out. Here you play as a colonist who had just regained consciousness in a deserted area on the planet Mars, with no recollection of the events that led to his current predicament. The only way to survive in this barren wasteland is to scavenge for items that can be used as weapons or as means of protecting yourself, since the knife in your possession isn't particularly useful during frenetic gunfights.

There is one small quest that you can complete in this test build. You'll need to have the XNA Framework already installed on your machine to get the game to run.

You Found the Grappling Hook is a simple rope physics game consisting of ten short levels, featuring music by Aaron Kurtz.

Use the arrow keys to swing your character left and right. You only release the rope when the space key isn't held. The up and down cursor keys can be used to climb or descend. Press the F4 function key to switch between full screen or windowed mode.

You Got a Demonwall
Calvin FrenchAction/Arcade2.47 MBClick here to download

Warning: Contains flashing images which may cause photosensitive epileptic seizures.

You Got a Demonwall! is one of the more arresting submissions for the Ludum Dare 14 competition, partly due to its unabashed use of epileptic-inducing effects on nearly all objects to be found in-game. Playing as a wall of doom which can only move forward or sideways, the objective of this particular romp is to smash through as many buildings and vehicles as you can for scoring purposes. The wall grows in size as you progress from screen to screen, but shrinks when a chopper hits you with one of their shots.

There is no way to lose the game, unless you count scoring low as a losing condition.

You Have to Fertilize the Egg

Kian BashiriAction/Arcade1.49 MBClick here to download

A sequel to Kianis' You Have to Burn the Rope, You Have to Fertilize the Egg is a self-declared art game which utilizes only the cursor keys for controls. This effort is slightly reminiscent of cactus' Life is a Race, where players will have to guide the hat-wearing cell from one end of the passage to the other, all in the name of survival.

Yum Yum
DerbyAction/Arcade6.81 MBClick here to download

In Yum Yum, you control a creature named yum that just happens to be at the beginning of the universe. The objective of the game is to keep this particular species alive throughout ten levels of play. Face all manner of enemies in your quest to be one of the dominant species in a new world.

Controls will take some effort to learn. Two choices are made available to the player, although in my opinion the second control setting will probably suit most players best. A crosshair will determine the yum's movement direction and speed based on the distance. To attack other species, launch a projectile by clicking the left mouse button. Right clicking is basically a reload function. To restart a level, just press the middle mouse button.

Enemies appear in all shapes and sizes. The introduction of bosses add variety to the game, and bonuses in the form of extra lives can be collected to prolong the yum's existence.

Yum Yum Remake
Stained GlassAction/Arcade0.96 MBClick here to download

Yum Yum Remake is basically a reinvention of the original from Derby. The background color is a soothing blue, though the action is anything but. Point to a location on screen using the mouse, and the white little creature will speed towards it.

Left click to launch a projectile and right click to destroy the current one after release. Press the middle mouse button to restart the level.
