Breakdown on a Tiny World

by WookooUK - 48 Hour Compo Entry

At the last minute I had to completely scrap my original idea due to time constrains but manages to get this made in under 6 hours.

The basic story is that you have crash landed on an alien planet and need to survive as long as you can.

There are some issue with this game, such as it starting off too easy and then getting too hard later on due to mobs spawning on top of you but I intend to fix all the issues and release an android version soon.

As this is the first game I have ever made I am pretty happy with myself but have also learnt lessons for what to do/not-do next time.

The arc-firing is fun.

Thanks, collision detection for that was evil, the sprites are 900% bigger than they look ;D

a nicely done first entry :-) the arc-firing is a cool idea and I like your crashed ship graphic.

Works really slow on my system for some reason. Core i7 920, I think I have java 7.

Good job for six hours, and it's your first game too! As has been said, the arc-firing is cool.

Of course, the game suffers from a lot of issues like enemies spawning on you and collision detection. Not being able to fire to the left means that the game pretty becomes a process of running to the right and shooting as fast as possible. But I'm sure you know that already. :)

Not bad for 6 hours. I can tell you would have been able to do more with more time. A good start.

685 points. I wish you'd had more time, but you can't make deals with a 10 month old. Anyway for the time you had this is pretty good. I hope you keep entering LDs and have a little more time next time.

Neat idea... it would be nice to be a bit deeper (weapon upgrades, etc, etc). Good job though.
