Jon Reid's Love Connection, which started as one of the top ten games overall in Ludum Dare 26 (Minimalism), asks players to help Mr. Yellow find his wife in the park. He must get to the endpoint in each level without his path crossing the paths of any other pairs of lovers in the park. The story that ties the puzzles together is charming, written on the screen but also read aloud like a picture book. And although the graphics don't change much from level to level, small touches like the umbrellas pictured above switch things up a little and keep the game feeling fresh as the player moves along.
