My submission for Ludum Dare 43, 48h compo. The theme was "Sacrifices must be made".

Instructions: WASD or arrow keys to move, mouse to aim and click to shoot.

A few minor improvements have been added to the original version, such as skippable story text and menu sound. The original Ludum Dare version is available here: https://ldjam.com/events/ludum-dare/43/downgrade

The game gets pretty difficult once you're at your two final parts. It's suggested you get rid of the shield immediately, so you have two weapons to work with at the end instead of one. Fun idea of starting out powerful, then picking which weapons you need to lose, then the ending really suits the LD's theme.


interesting. played stuff on similar concept before. not as a shmup though. game's a little slow for me, but i guess that makes it easier for more casual players. swarm from all sides off-screen is a little dry as a mechanic too, but i guess since it's a quick game, it's not exactly condemnable. warning: music sounds cool at first, but gets really grating after a couple minutes. it's the low end.

overall, i guess for a Ludum Dare compo it passes inspection, but it's not exactly sale-able, if you know what i mean. fun for a little diversion anyway. hoping you make the right choices, that is. feel sorry for the Cap though. maybe he'll get lucky though and there's a cryo-freeze function or something he can use: okay, so it both worked and didn't work great on the Narcissus, but that's cuz Ridley's got #$&% for luck.

ftr, game freezes right after game start in IE.

really fun! for how minimal the style, the challenge and rising tension does everything to keep me hooked playing wave after wave
