Castaways

by vipah - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my not so polished/finished game.

Story:

Through wars and ecological disasters the entire human race has been forced to hitch a ride on an asteroid for a ride to a new world. Nearing the end of their journey and having faced countless trials, they are now at the mercy of a fierce meteor swarm. As commander of the Human Defence Force you are humanities last hope.

I will detail what I had to leave out in my post mortem.

Pretty fun for a while - I liked the wide spread of the turrets, and the fact that bullets would collide with each other and the turrets - definitely added more to the game than just "click really really fast".

Like missile command, but actually fun.

Cool take on missle command, racked up a couple thousand points easy though.. might want to ramp the difficulty :)

I liked how you had to protect the city, but if you neglected the turrets they would die and you would lose firepower. Would be cool if there was more things to shoot at, like maybe aliens. I got in between 700 and 800.

Has a really nice feel to it, fast paced and hitting things feels kind of solid in a strange way.

Quite a frantic game, didn't expect this :-)
It's fun to play for a bit. I especially liked the colliding bullets, nice touch.

Nice fun simple concept. I couldn't get past the second wave...I failed humanity. :(

No, *you* have failed humanity j/k. Fun game. To echo what dukope said, this immediately reminded me of missle command but I hate missle command and like this.

Brings back memories. Fun to blow things up! The music needs to be a little longer or change occasionally.

The music got repetetive and annoyed me pretty quick. Decent graphics. Was a bit easy since you could just spam bullets over the whole screen. Nice job though!

Everything is better with particles effects...loved the game...(how did you now that i love to blow things up)...

Ha, it does the "flak-shield"-feeling /completely right/. Nice work on that part!
