Throw More Junk at Aliens (Post-Compo Update)

I’ve added a Post-Compo version of Throw Junk at Aliens!  And if you haven’t already, please play and rate the compo version!

Play the Post-Compo Update or read more below.

This update has added a lot of the things I originally wanted to have in the compo version.  The aliens have more complex behaviors and there are other humans running around to distract them.  You can also take down the UFO now (and of course you can then throw it at other UFOs).

Additionally, I spent some time improving the feel of the original features.  I got a lot of feedback on the movement, aiming, and player feedback, all of which I’ve tried to address.  The collisions have also been improved with tons of new particles and improved sounds.  It’s surprising how this makes throwing things so much more satisfying!


Here’s a list of some of the things I’ve added and changed:

  • Aliens now panic and run away when low on health or surprised.
  • Humans occasionally pop out of their houses, especially when thrown.
  • Destroy the UFO, throw it at another UFO.
  • So many particles! (And perhaps worse performance on slower computers, but look at the particles!)
  • Music!
  • View the trajectory before you throw.
  • Camera rotation.
  • Faster movement.


Thanks for all the feedback and thanks for checking out the update!
