hi. i’ve been quiet all weekend, but i (along with two teammates) did make a game. i was pessimistic about this theme at first, but it fortunately ended up giving me a really inspiring idea.
the game has you platforming and using a dash attack to defend fellow dinosaurs against continuously spawning aliens. it’s a very skill based game. you have to jump around to avoid attacks while lining up your own attacks fast enough to keep the aliens from overwhelming you. eggs will periodically hatch in groups around the map, which triggers waves of aliens to be beamed in to evolve the hatching dinos. dinos that get hit with the alien evolution rays turn into new enemies for you to deal with. as the game progresses, they evolve into tougher creatures. you can see the whole level at once, so you’re able to be a little strategic about mopping up the aliens and evolved creatures. the gameplay is very fast paced, fun, and even flow-inducing.
overall i’m quite happy with how it turned out. it has excellent pixel art provided by one of my teammates, and a little story to boot. so check it out!
