You are a gladiator that faces waves of enemies, your only way to survive is to pick up items that appear on the ground to beat them up.


Use the arrow keys to move and the x key to dash

---Item list----
-Bow (shoot on a single enemy at a time)
-Heart (restore 1 hp)
-SuperBow (shoots on all enemies)
-SpeedBoot (increase your move speed)
-Mushroom (give you hallucination)
-Turret (build a turret that shoots on enemies)

Originally made for the Mini Jam 7 - Greek Mythology https://itch.io/jam/mini-jam-7-greek-mythology-
where the limitation was "only 4 colors".

Update 08/29/18 : Difficulty increased, item sprite added and color added for better readability.

Update 3/2/19 : Game performance issues fixed and other little things improved.

Enjoy !

This was ok. It felt like a bit of a remake of Robotron in some ways. It movement would speed up and slow down arbitrarily, which made picking up health and weapons difficult at times.

Good gameplay, good controls and soundtrack, i liked and enjoyed it, bad side tho is that it is too casual, i mean i assume that was its goal, and it accomplished it, but still, interest dies quickly.
Another thing of note is that there isn't really an attack button, the character attacks on his own depending if the enemies are within range and i didn't mind, it's a cool game mechanic and it does it well, but i guess some people might not enjoy it, not my case tho.

Nice and chaotic!

I can't seem to move up. I can move down, left and right but not up, even though my up key is just fine.. What's going on?
