Deep Space

by develop32 - Competition Entry

A discovery game. You must find all parts of the ancient alien engine. There are enemies too. Controls are described in the game. Note that game is a bit hardcore, so don't give up fast!

I used Xna 3.1 for development. So because few gamers have its framework I included its setup in download.

Source is included also.

UPDATE: I made a patch that makes Deep Space more easier to play. It reduces the amount of asteroids (but rampage mode has even more now), also weakens the enemies a bit and makes them to appear less.

I've given up, for now. I'll get to the rest of the pieces eventually! It was just challenging enough to keep it interesting without making me give up too soon. Although I didn't feel like I was doing much discovering, just random shooting and/or following arrows.

Sorry for making the game too hard. I was playing it all the time. It seemed very so easy to me that i hardened it. As i still was able to finish it I thought that it's a good version and I submitted it.

SO hard. I really liked how things got more interesting and you upgraded as you went along, but I was stuck probably very early when I got to the part that teleports around... not sure what you're even supposed to do about that other than hope it appears right next to you!

Hey, not bad!
Just as others said, quite hard. I managed to get the radar to the second part but got killed. The ship is a bit hard to control and I kept crashing into things. It's also nasty, that I can destroy the repair thingies.
Other than that, well made.

Pretty good game. I've never liked asteroid like controls, but this one works better than most. The end menu could have had more obvious choices (never got to try rampage mode). Played with the balance patch, I think it had a good difficulty level.
