You play as a keeper of the magic mirror fighting strange creatures in the dark castle.
Udom Nebdon is a bit of a short game but with a great graphics style. There's a static camera with intentionally wicked controls and the color palette is so reduced that it gives a really nice retro arcady look and definitely adds up to suspense and is just brimming with atmosphere. This is a graphic style that hasn't been seen in a long time.
When you stumble upon a creature, you will realize that the mirror is not working unless you put it up against the ray of light. Likely, the creature is not particularly fast, but it will keep on coming after you until it gets you. There could be more than one creature attacking you at the same time. Just make sure to get away before it gets a chance to get too close to you.
The goal is to kill all (3) creatures (the third one is a bit difficult to defeat), in order to unlock the door and leave out through the light.
Maybe the biggest problem is the lack of the checkpoints. Going all over from the very beginning is kind of exhausting and this might make you want to quit before finish up and finding out what's behind that locked door.
The controls are little weird. You use arrows or WASD to walk around. Use 'Q' and 'E' to turn in place. Left control key or space bar to raise the mirror. This applied for camera-direct controls and if you like you can switch to old-school 'tank' controls.
The author of Udom Nebdon is Paul Lawitzki, software developer from Ludwigsburg, German, who made this game for the purpose of the 33rd online game jam called Ludum Dare. Official website http://plaw.info/
Scientist : @cordelia idk why but i actually enjoyed the controls... i recommend tank controls if you know how to play DOOM 1 or 2 with the keyboard (without mouse support).
cordelia : Gah, these controls! XP
cordelia : Nicely made, I think. :)
Scientist : Basically i got bored again and started the game cause i didn't beat it yet, here's a protip: First go to the room with the golden doors and up the stairs, then kill the first monster, i recommend tank controls and walking backwards and so damaging the monster at the same time, the next monster in the corridor, just return back to the light and kill it there, then go further and kill the third one, don't risk the light in front of it. If you do that you will realize the doors aren't open. You'll have to blind 2 eyes they are in the rooms with light on a wall. If you are tired of the game that's the ending down there: SPOILER ALERT You go in the door the screen turns white and says:THE END and below it a restart button that puts you to the start, best ending ever is it?
Scientist : This came a while back but now i got bored so i took my time to load the game. The controls sure are weird but they are familiar to me. It is like prince of persia warrior within, at least on PC not sure about the console version.★★★★★
scary_kid : contorls are a bit weird, still tryin' to figure it out but it looks okay :) just don't know what to do with myself lol
Creepyalex : This is such an amazing game! The controls may act a bit weird especially when you are in a tight situation but overall this game is super interesting.
