Mary's Awesome Adventure

by brainiac256 - Game Jam Entry

I can't get past 10,000 points or so. I never implemented an endgame and I haven't tested the boss but it appears more or less impossible to get there as the game is now. There should be 11 waves before the boss (I intended to add a new enemy each wave but could only get 8 enemies total) but I've never made it that far. Good luck!

Remember, if you get a "Bad Version Number" error, update your Java Virtual Machine. I have 1.6.0_24. If you're on Linux, use the official Sun JVM, the OpenJDK JVM apparently doesn't do sound right (at least, it didn't for me) but the Sun JVM worked properly. On Mac OS 10.5.x it is left as an exercise to the reader to find the update for the latest Java version.

An okay little bullet hell shooter with nice music and sounds, though the sound quality of the music isn't very good. The controls could've used tuning - F and R are hard to press while moving with WASD, so using mouse buttons or maybe space for the actions could've been better. Holding the mouse button to shoot in another direction doesn't seem necessary, just moving the mouse to aim should be enough.

Loved the concept of a bullet hell with melee! Cute sprites, and a nice progression of power ups and rewards.

Great work!

I don't care if the destroy() method doesn't stop the music.. cause it's awesome! =)
