In Pigeon Ascent, take care of your own pigeon as they fight increasingly stronger foes, and then face the legendary Pigeon God at the end... can you keep death far from your bird?

 Inspired by games such as La Brute, Tamagochi and a little bit of Pokémon, Pigeon Ascent is our game for Ludum Dare #46. I admit that we strayed a bit from the theme, but since we had tons of fun developing this game, we're quite happy with the result :)


 This game was made for the Ludum Dare #46. If you want, you can play the first uploaded version here!

Gameplay and controls:

 The mouse is used for everything. The pigeons fight by themselves, but you can choose the attribute points and which enemies your pigeon will fight.

lololol this is so cool

ez cool game

Good game! the game we deserve.

i love birds

You should fix the attack because it's broken, you can beat the pigeon god with only attack

the pigeon god watching a goose pigeon named "the j" beat it in 4 seconds:

So good I had to play again! My training arc is almost complete!

Great little game, thoroughly enjoyed it.

This game is adorable and addictive!


é um jogo bem legal para passar o tempo, pena que quando perde reinicia do zero.


Nice game! I think the Pigod should be much more powerful because at the end people just spam Protein until they've got really bloated strength.

Very fun game! Loved it! Went all into defense and then speed, absolutely destroyed every opponent haha.

This game is so much fun! I tried becoming the best pigeon fighter! I'll be playing again. Good game! 


very funny game. I loved the fighting style and pixel style. a true masterpiece of a game.  0% drugs  0% sex   100% pigeon.


is it possible to customize my character like the other pigeons in the game? If so how??

the different look of your pigeon depends on the stats you choose to focus on, for example, maxing out your strength stat will make your pigeon have the red headband, and muscles.


The piegon name is Brako,

Badass Brako


and i went i only attack and named my pigeon i attac then  i whent defense i named my pigeon i protec


so fun i even named my pigeon pombo the god and then i beat the real GOD so now pombo is the new GOD obey him

I went all attack, one shot the pigeon god! Great game, thanks for posting the source code :)

My pigeon was so strong when he beat another pigeon, that game just crashed. 10/10

(1 edit) (+1)

Best ratio - 2:3:1

Works against all opponents.


This is one of the most entertaining games I've played in a long time. Its only fault is it's too short!


Muy buen juego me ha gustado mucho


This game was a blast, thank you so much for making it! Pombo will be greatly missed by us


This game is adorable. Maybe needs some balancing, but still enjoyed it a lot!


sometimes when the birds collide the game crashes


way too short


just get strength until god then get defense and spend all your money on protein


cool game


Oof, I overestimated my powers on dragon :)
