To round off this weeks Indie Intermission I bring you yet another fantastic little game from the Ludum Dare competition. Virtua Luge is a game that has been developed by Skwirl3014 and has you testing your luge skills in this awesomely designed game.
Virtua Luge in its name alone plays homage to the classic SEGA Saturn title Virtua Fighter, taking inspiration for the graphics used in Virtua Luge.
Virtua Luge’s gameplay is defiantly inspired by another classic SEGA title (Sonic), however it tries to add some interesting new mechanics to this already well established formula.
Being developed in just one weekend means Virtua Luge -although a great game already- lacks some ambition. I feel with more development Virtua Luge could be a rather awesome little mobile game. If Skwirl3014 where to increase the speed, add some more animations, and add power ups I could see this being a great little time waster on the move.
Average play time – 3 minutes
Virtua Luge is a great little time waster that really captures the early Sega graphics perfectly. Although not a perfect game, considering this was created in one weekend Virtua Luge really provides a very fun experience.
To play Virtua Luge head to the Ludum Dare site and download it. If you enjoy the game be sure to vote for it on Ludum Dare also.
