This is my "submission" for the Game Jam 5. It is based on the Sci-Fi novel Ender's Game
You control your players with four sets of controls:
Player(s) 1:
(W:up (S: down) (A:left) (D: right) [1: (fire 1)] [2: (fire 2)]
Player(s) 2:
(I:up) (K: down )(J:left) (L: right ) (Space: Fire)
Player(s) 3:
(Up Arrow:up) (Down arrow: down) (Left Arrow:left) (Right Arrow: right ) (Back Slash: Fire)
Player(s) 4:
(Num 8: up) (Num 5: down) (Num 4: left) (Num 6: right) (Num Zero: fire)
Ignore this.



Rated 2 / 5 stars

too confusing as is

While the concept of doing enders game, it is too confusing to do it with the control style you have set up. I think this would have gone over much better if it was some sort of turn-based type of game-play.

That's not a bad idea. I might actually try to do a similar game with a turn based mechanic. Thanks for the review.

Nice idea.

Cool one, it works well with friends around :)

shrimpchris responds:

That it does, that it does.


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Good idea, but...

It's really, really hard to control four characters at once.

shrimpchris responds:

Well, thanks for your time.
