In 1931, Empire City was under the attack of gangsters and thugs. Your grandfather took to the streets to defend Empire City against that injustice. Now, 99 years later, you are faced with a similar task. The year is 2030 and Aliens have attacked Empire City, do all you can to stop them.

This game is a little unique in on the gameplay system works, so please read the instructions.
Arrow Keys – Move Crosshair
Z – Shoot
Hold Z – When you get the machine gun, hold Z to fire.
Hold X – Shield. Shield is used to block enemy attacks. You can only keep the shield up for 1 second, so your timing must be on point. Using the shield will cost you three round of ammo, so use it wisely. You also cannot shoot while you are shielded.
The object is to scan around the city looking for aliens to shoot. There are three indicators to help you on your way:
Arrows only give you a horizontal guide of where aliens are.
Blue Arrow: Alien is in that direction, and far away.
Yellow Arrow: Alien in that direction, but close
Red Exclamation: You are on the right horizontal location, you just need to look up and down to find the enemy.
Crates and Trash Cans – These can be shot and have a chance of dropping a machine gun.
Extra Ammo – Enemies will sometimes drop ammo when killed.
High Score is stored locally.
I tried to get all the mechanics in place and at least one level for this Jam. I hope to continue adding more levels, powerups and enemies into the mix.
