Swing Your Big Medical Hammer

I was going to take part back in 2011, but that didn’t happen.  Thankfully, I finally had time to devote, this time around. :)   With a theme like “Beneath the Surface”, naturally I immediately thought of chest-bursters from Aliens.

And then my mind drifted to whack-a-mole.  And then they merged together: Chestburster Whack-a-Mole.  And so my first real solo jam journey began. 😛

You’re a doctor. You have a big Medical Hammer™. Injured Marines are dropped from the frickin’ ceiling (?!) onto the bio-bed.  If they’re clean, they’re beamed back onto the battlefield. If they’re infected, you SMASH THEM with your ridiculous hammer before they jump out and kill you.

And that’s about it. It’s just a goofy arcade game.  It’s also quite INCOMPLETE. There’s plenty of BUGS (including one where you don’t properly die when you’re supposed to and no more marines are beamed in…and you just idle there, wondering what’s going on).   But I got most of what I’d hoped to accomplish in there. I’ll throw down some polish on it soon.  Third-party credit list on the way.

I’ll give it a shot.

First timer here.  I start lots of game-related projects, but rarely finish them. I tend to spend most of my time writing the framework or engine for a game, and by the time I’m actually getting down to writing the game, I’m spent.  Hoping a compo like this will help me break that nonsense.

Tools: Flixel, FlashDevelop, Photoshop, sfxr, Audacity, souls of the damned.
