OK, my first Ludum Dare project is finally complete! The code may be messy, but I had a lot of fun making it anyway. I call the finished product “Tower Infinite.” The .zip file includes Windows and Linux executables (thanks to Keeyai for the Linux port). Download links:
The point of the game is to climb each stage of the tower, and destroy (and survive) enemies that will attack you on the way up. Be careful to conserve your jet power and get the most out of each boost, or you may find yourself in a sticky situation. Each level is procedurally generated, so there is a huge number of different possible levels to play. The gameplay is designed to get harder and more fast-paced with every level you play, in various ways like higher numbers of enemies, advancing enemy behavior, etc., so if you think the first level or two is slow, don’t worry.
