Those Stupid Aliensby LoneStranger - Jam Entry
Top-down shooter where the stupid and weak aliens get replaced with smarter and more successful aliens as you destroy them.
I've been around for a long time, but I've only had a handful of successful (read: submitted) entries. This one I originally started for the compo, but I ran out of time and didn't want to submit an incomplete game. With the extra 24 hours was able to bring it to a satisfactory state.
The aliens start off in a more or less random state. The successful aliens get their 'DNA' recorded and used for future waves, weeding out the unsuccessful aliens and increasing the difficulty.
Check out my journal for the postmortem.
