The Killbots of Cavern Station is a real time semi-tactical game. Use cover to kill the evil orange killbots.

Instructions:

WASD controls the camera.

Space bar to switch between your different squads

Click to send squad to location.

Squads will take cover behind any cover (white blocks) that their control rectangle touches or contains.

Squad members shoot automatically.

Tanks cannot take cover.

Make sure to use cover! It's super important!

Other Stuff:

Used:
Flixel and my own custom collision detection optimizations
Tile Studio/Graphics Gale for pixel art
Sfxr for sounds

Fun times with only a single low importance nitpic

I had a surprisingly fun time. Probably because even though all you're doing is clicking to move dots, they're better at their job than most squads you get in retail squad based games.

My only slight nitpick is that there is no way to really keep track of which group is 'Squad 1', and which is 'Squad 2', the squad specific speed upgrades aren't as helpful as they could be unless you always have them at matched levels.

Beautifully done!

Though, I think it needs more content.

And removing the unit limits would be cool.

Amazingly addictive!

This game is amazingly simple yet addictive!

A few disappointments:
1) Too few levels - 5 levels is too little. If I want to play for longer, I'm forced to stick to playing level 4.
2) 5k for a tank. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the tank seems indestructible. In other words, as long as you have a tank and a bit of damage/health increase, you're pretty much set to win.

Hope to see a sequel!
