Islands Survival

by MrLL - Competition Entry

You are a robot. There is a giant ship and little speeding robots after you. Survival is your only option.

Score points by jumping on little speeding robots, letting shots hit blocks, and the crystal getting destroyed.

I didn't spend a lot of time on it, and honestly, I just wanted it finished. I could've done more in polishing it but I just didn't want to deal with it anymore. No music or sound effects, don't know how to make either. High score does not get saved outside of game. Works on XP. Cannot guarantee it will work on any other Windows version.

EDIT: Changed download links. Should work now.

I really like the main sprite. =)

Fun. You can "win" without moving left or right at all, just jumping. The center shot doesn't seem to kill you :P

With more polish it would have been much funner, the concept was fine..just poor execution.

I liked the little robot sprites.

EEK! What was the red thing at the bottom for? Some sound effects would've helped a great deal, as well as some more explanation into what the hell is happening. lol

Neat. This was kindaa fun.
The Good - robots where super cute, tiles looked fine, I liked the way the shots slowly destroyed the island.
The Bad - Death doesnt seem to matter, I wasnt sure what I was doing, enemy robots and the giant shot both dont seem to kill you....
The Ugly - that giant... thing? at the top of the screen? I dunno what it was really, some sort of space station? The half assed pillow shading on it kinda killed the overall graphical feel tho...

I actually liked the robots. It does feel rushed though.

With a few more diversity and cleaner controls this could be quite hectic fun.

The little robots are cute, the game does seem to be quite small though.

Hempuli says ...

Quite simple, but good fun for a while. I couldn't figure out what the upper counter meant.
