Colony Tycoon

by Andrew Marsh - Competition Entry

The original idea of this game is that you play as a robot scouting new locations for human colonies to see what things you can find.

Due to my own procrastination this is unfortunately not as finished as I would have liked.

Controls:
Up/Down/Left/Right move robot
Esc toggle inventory screen

When the time runs out it will show your inventory screen and you may restart by pressing escape.

The arrow points back towards the ship.

I am hoping to improve this entry for the jam.

Controls are really weird, the acceleration should be capped at some reasonable number.

Acceleration seems extremely slow to me, and there's not much gameplay going for it. Sorry :( interesting concept though, I could see this being developed further.

As you said, not much of a game there. It does look promising though. Hope you keep working on it.

Decent start, the controls are a little weird, more like surfing than controlling a robot ;) If it had a goal and end game, more purpose, would be great mate. Audio, sound, would be nice :)
