Made for Ludum Dare 32 in 72h.

You didn't ask what the diversion was for, you didn't ask for a good teamate and ammo too... But the fate of the world depends on you (well... you think)
Survive as long as you can, fight for your life, and don't forget to get the pieces of your truck back after tossing them.

Your tank shoots really bad without his canon... and you cannot drive without wheels...

I thought it was great!! Streamed it on my Twitch channel - fun :-)



Creative. A possible foundation for a really good game. As it is, it's just a little too annoying to be fun. I say annoying because your characters will throw parts of your vehicle even when they have other ammo to spare. That really oughta be a last-resort tactic. It's very frustrating to hit the fire button and see your cannon go flying across the screen, then have it be thrown again immediately after you race over to retrieve it.

I got a better score just running in circles around the very edges of the playing field.

Now, I know this was made for a game jam and that the weapon/ammunition mechanic was put in place to meet the requirements of the jam. So it's good for that purpose, but, as-is, it doesn't feel like a complete game.

So, like I said, I think you've got a good foundation here. Revamp the weapon/ammunition mechanic, add progressively difficult enemies, maybe throw in an upgrade system, and you'll have something really good.

No pause menu?

I drove over the wall and fell off the world within the first 10 seconds of playing.

Had to refresh to actually play the game. You have no reason to shoot, because your score is based on length of survival and not how many aliens you destroy, and there doesn't seem to be any way to keep from jettisoning your wheels and cannon, even when you have plenty of stuff in the truck.

Cool game, though.



That tank looks a lot like the NG tank on that one loading screen! :D I like the idea, and that stylish 3D landscape which you traverse, but maneuvering isn't as smooth as I'd like it somehow, and how you slow down when you throw away your wheels that's eh... interesting. :P Wheels seem a bit excessive to throw, but I guess it's a strategy you need to get used to. Was fun to play!

Fun, but hard. I'm not a fan of the ability to shoot your own gun. I love the random voice acting, though!
