Gamma Ray Deflector

by brookman32k - 48 Hour Compo Entry

That's it - my first Ludum Dare entry!

The aim of the game is to protect your DNA from too much mutation through cosmic radiation. Radiation is responsible for mutation of all genetic material and plays a big role in evolution. But too much radiation will destroy every organism!

Use the mouse to move (left button) and rotate (right button) the different deflectors to shield your cell as well as possible and reflect the incoming gamma rays away.

Repair your DNA by quickly pressing the letters (ACGT) popping up at the center. (

The game could use some more work (especially the audio sucks), but I'm quite happy with what I achieved and I had tons of fun (and also a little frustration ^^').

Have fun playing and see you next time! :D

Not bad, actually, although something was wrong with my mouse controls. Can be really fun!

This is a pretty cool concept. The controls are the biggest barrier to progression though. For me at least. with a simplified control scheme this would be a lot better. I really like the graphics, though, real nice presentation.

I liked the style quite a bit.

Around the 1050 points, it feels crazy difficult and untenable. Maybe a little smoother difficulty curve around there would be good.
