The Adventure of Charles Starwin

by surreal_whale - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Arrow keys to move, Space to shoot.
Far from a complete game, but playable.

Each new enemy which spawns bases its stats on the average of the surviving enemies so in theory they 'evolve', in practice it makes very little noticeable difference, although they do tend to get faster. I'm sure the concept could be done well (in fact someone nearly certainly will have done something similar and better in the competition) but I don't have time to do it.

I really like this! The graphic style and gameplay are great. I'd like to see it expanded a bit more. It has a lot of potential!

Couldn't play. Server's timing out.

Hehe loving the title and title screen. Gameplay was simple yet fun. I missed sounds and more stuff going on though. Overall job well done!

Great controls, with some more work this could be really fun.

I just uploaded the game to Kongregate and changed the link, so that should solve any server problems.

I love this game :D although, I found the worst way to play it was like a warrior, by this i mean I went full speed, all guns blazing into the...eh...what are they? space tigers?

Awesome idea and fun to play. Shame the evolution didn't come through a little more.

I really like how this game looks. Very colourful and inviting, easy to pick up and the animations are slick. Gameplay isn't too deep, but still a great little game.

I love the controls, I really enjoy the game, I get lost everytime I was close to the screen borders :P

Fun game! I ran off the right side of the screen and couldn't seem to get back and had to refresh the page at one point, some sort of boundary would have been good to have. I hope you'll update this one!

A little too easy to fly out of the map boundaries. It's a solid game - but I definitely didn't notice any evolution in the enemies.

Besides the intro screen, the gfx are great! I loved the rainbow particles everywhere

Would be nice if you couldn't get lost on the map boundaries. Also the controls are a little difficult for aiming.

Nice game but too easy.

Rainbow particles!

Don't be so hard on yourself, not only was the name awesome, the game was fun too!!! My only issue was that when I went off the screen I couldn't get back on...

Sep 11, 2012 @ 12:46pm

I enjoyed playing this one, the particle effects were cool too

I really liked the rainbow sparks. More rainbows! And explosions would have been wonderful. Pity there isn't a degree of Cute Sounds.
