Title: Lud O the Rings
Post by: Omadan on 2017-Jun-27
I am posting my latest game in off-topic because it is my first full game using Corona. As you all know or most of you are aware, I have been using GLBasic for years and still do, but wanted to try something different.

The Story:
Embark on the most exciting board game adventure you will ever experience. A perfect mix between fantasy and Ludo that will have you totally hooked with its stunning cute visuals, ease of use and replayability.

Choose from 5 playable races, with more coming in future updates, each with their own skills and personalities.

In Lud O the Rings, no one is safe, there is danger in every corner and you should learn to use your skills and abilities in order to stay alive and succeed. Play with all the classes and get to know their strengths and weaknesses and put them to use in battle.

Make your ordinary Ludo board game come alive with this strategical, engaging game inside a magical world with fantasy creatures.

Bring your friends over, order some yummy pizza and play the most enjoyable ludo board game you will ever experience on iOS.

Apple App Store Download Link:

I wanted to give 5 promo codes on a first come, first serve basis.


Thank you all for your time.

Congratulations!! But it's a pity that is not a GLBasic game  :(

Btw, perhaps GLBasic should follow the business model of Corona: completely free and a Market Place to have incomes (for both, Gernot and the developer)

It looks good and it has a great cheesy pun for the name, however, I'm not sure many will get the pun - as "LUDO" is the British name for the game; it has other names around the world, including Parcheesi in the US.

Good luck though :)

Ludo is also called the same here in Denmark. Howover rules in Denmark is slighly changed by also using stars and globes, which is not in the original game.

So its could been fun to see if this game got the variants of the rules from various countries.

btw Parcheesi is a brand name of Ludo, so its cant been used.

I didn't say the name was exclusively British, just that most other countries know it by another name. :P

I made a port to Android.

Game is called Fantasy Ludo.

It is free, but restricted to only human characters.


By the way this is my first game released on play store, I cannot see my app unless I actually search for it by name. Isn't there a new releases category where my app should be seen. Now I understand why there are no downloads :)

Yep it is hard to expect any curation from the major stores.
While I still have none of my stuff on the google play as of yet, I see a lot of comments towards that.

Itchio seems a good place though.

We are now currently working on our next update for Lud O the Rings, and we are changing game to free this weekend in order to get as many players involved as possible.

If you like the game in any way and have a minute to spare, a review in the app store would be a very kind gesture, but of course this is up to you.
