In the past two months I've had some intense programming sessions (due the virus).

I'll take a break for a while. But in the meanwhile here is my entry, just in time for the jam.

I apologize in advance if a crash occurs during the game;

it rarely happens and I have not been able to identify the cause.


Thanks to @PlugsAndNeedles for playing it and allowing me to adjust the difficulty based on his experience.


Special thanks to @GeoKureli for his Haxe NG API.

I know how to split and shut off shields but it's still way too hard to dodge enemies when your other half cant make small evasive maneuvers. I've noticed you can use the gun to shoot him other places but when you have bats kamikazeeing towards you youre pretty much gonna have to run back into them to go back onto that platform. A much needed fix would be full control of your other half while using arrow keys or a jkli format. I like this game and it would be awesome to have more of a shot of beating it with skill instead of just random luck by not rng.

-edit
Of course its right there in the instructions... I take some of my critique back the best way to play the platform levels is to keep the white guy on the platform and shoot the black guy to the other one if youre fast enough you can shoot him to the other platform and back before the enemies get to you so yea controlling the other half isnt needed but still invincible kamikazee enemies are a pet peeve of mine it seems like just making eyeballs invincible would make things more balanced.

That was pretty fun!

good game

very good game

how the hell do i tern off the shield generator thing???. oh ya aout that i found out by playing the tutoriel looooooool

HealliesGames responds:

Reach one of the two button with the entire body.
Then, split yourself and use the gun side to propel him to the other button.

This is the intended way.
