A Simple Shooter

This is a project I've been working on for about a week. My cousins and I sometimes take roadtrips together, and while we don't have internet access, we're restricted to offline games on his laptop. Unfortunately, none of these have a decent multiplayer mode, so I figured I'd go on ahead and make this.

You may experience bugs with multiplayer based off of your keyboard's limitations. There are combinations of keys that will not register on certain keyboards. If this becomes a problem, change the controls until you find a combination that works.

It's a good time-waster, but I can't unlock the medals. In fact, according to the medal history, no medals have been unlocked since 2015...? The game works fine when I'm in single player but I can't increase the amount of available point blocks without losing my ability to shoot.

Kwing responds:

That's really bizarre. I made a patch for a glitch several months ago but I can't see it having anything to do with the medals. But I know I can alter the settings of the game without glitches so maybe the issue is on your end?

this game is so cool

5 out of 5!

I really like this simple idea of a multiplayer shooter, and choosing a 'stun' penalty over health bars and whatnot.

Just a thought though: dark blue against a black background doesn't work very well. Magenta or cyan would be much better.

Kwing responds:

This was something I considered while making the game. If I were to change the color, it would remain blue but most likely be a paler shade of it.

Excellent game. The only problem i find is the controls. It would be better if there was other way to shoot.

Kwing responds:

Yeah, sorry about that. As it is, finding eight keys (2 per player x 4 players) that can be held on a keyboard simultaneously is no easy feat, and I really didn't want to try my luck with twelve buttons. Originally this game was operated with only one button, but it was really hard to aim precisely and pull off long-distance shots.
