Best of Global Game Jam 09: Part 2

1 02 2009


Spil Plus
Utrecht, Netherlands

Fantastic little puzzler. Using just the left and right on the keyboard, the object of the game is to help two magnetic balls reach each other – however they must be oppositely charged when they meet. Obstacles get in the way and magnetically-charged objects can change the polarity of our little rolling friends. There’s also ‘bullet time’… You must give this one a go.


The Dunedin Team
Dunedin, New Zealand

Humans are coming and the planet isn’t suitable yet! A timed ordeal, clouds will appear over water during the day time, which must then be gathered over the land in order to grow trees or to make more oceans. Tricky at first, TerrAqua turns out to be pretty good fun and a very nice idea.

Newport, Wales

With 3 minutes on the clock, you must rush around the screen collecting the packages but avoided the evil red enemies. Of course, it’s not as simple as that – you’ve got a little blue friend spinning around you who must be looked after too and everytime you get hit, he begins to lag, then gets progressively worse. Oh, you also get bigger and bigger with each parcel collected. Seems simple, but it’s ace fun.

Now go check out the third part of our ‘Best Of’ list.

No, thank you! I absolutely loved it – possibly my favourite of the lot (although I won’t make that statement official in an attempt to keep the peace :))

Wow! Thanks for reviewing Lag – we never thought our little game would get as much attention as it did 😀
