Griff Dangers in Mettle vs. Metal

by lambomang - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You are Griff Dangers. You've been called to investigate rogue robot sightings in the city. But you soon find out, these are no ordinary robots. These robots are intelligent. They will evolve to adapt to your fighting style. But you are Griff Dangers. You can handle it.

Killing bots at close range will increase their fire rate.
Killing bots at long range will increase their health.
Killing bots with grenades will increase their movement speed.

A: Left
D: Right
Spacebar: Jump
W: Use
Mouse: Aim
LMB: Shoot
RMB: Scope (sniper rifle)

This is a fun shooter! Not sure how it follows the theme, but a solid shooter non the less ;) Loved the music.

@lazybraingames It fits in with the theme by having the robots evolve/change their attributes (speed, health, fire rate) depending on how you fight them :) Glad you enjoyed it :D

Nice little game. Unfortunately these games are always hard to play when you have "Search on type" on.
Though I totally love the graphics. Really good and clean.

I really like the underlying idea in this game.
In the game itself I think it would be hard to tell the changes happening as you play, if you didn't know.

Also more punch in the gun effects please :D

game is impossible in firefox, the bullets go straight through the enemies 90% of the time and the few that do hit and kill the money they drop clips into the middle of hte floor tile becomeing permanantly entombed within, totally unreachable :/

That's odd. Firefox was what I was using to test it. How old/slow is your PC? Sounds like a low frame rate issue :/

The sniper rifle made me hate life itself.

Worked really well. Liked the art. Control system felt a bit awkward, like maybe too many controls for a simple game.

It was really hard to see the bullets, giving them a black circle around would have improved a lot.

wouldn't be a slow issue, this thing is my workhorse pc that gets upgrades about yearly. Game seemed to be running just fine, aside from some poorly made games i've had no issue with speed in any html5 games so far, webgl or not. I had this issue with two other construct2 games so far though so i'm thinking it's a "construct 2" issue, that it's doing something that's perhaps effected by security settings or something?

I played in Chrome several times. I was unable to use any of the weapons or what I assume were health boxes - when I pressed the Use key, I just got an exclamation point icon rising above whatever I was using. I tried a lot of times and a lot of ways. Otherwise, the game was fun; good simple graphics, fast-paced, good sounds. I wish there were better ways to avoid bullets, but maybe the answer is being able to use the health boxes. No apparent connection to the theme, but well-made and cool.

@DaveDobson Sorry, I probably should have mentioned that those things are vending machines. It costs 100 coins to refill your health, and it's 200 (or was it 250?) to change weapon.
About how it fits in with the theme, try reading the description ;)

A bit too difficult for my liking but fun.

It was pretty hard but a good entry.

Pretty good:) Not outstanding in any one category, but very good all around, enjoyable and fun for a basic sidescrolling platform shooter. Nice job!
