by @TeddyNashor - 48 Hour Compo Entry

First entry in LD. Had a blast and def will do it again. The art is programmer art and there is no sound, but I think the game mechanics are fun :)

Play it at

The game is pretty hard, so i suggest playing around in cheat mode to see what works for you. (in cheat mode you may press space to skip a level). Didn't have much time to balance the game. (may i suggest turrets though :P)

Also feel free to download the unity package (in the windows link), you can check out the code/edit it or do what you like :)!

I suggest playing in full screen, some of the GUI is a bit cramped?

There is a cheat mode as well (top corner of title screen)

If you would like to add music/art to this game and make it better w/ me twitter me! @TeddyNashor!

A bit too hard, I think my record is 800 gold or something, keep dying at the 3rd/4th wave. Fun Idea, and makes sense to defend the asteroid you're mining from, but still, too hard.

The mining levels are kinda fun, however the fighter level really let it down. They move far too fast.

Nice game, but to hard for me. I cant pass 3rd level.

Fun concept, solid gameplay, intuitive controls. Art could use some polish, and the lack of sound or music really hurts.

I love how hectic it is. Gets a bit too hard really fast though. Maybe the mining portion should be more generous so upgrades came faster? But including a shop in itself is a great addition. Solid work.

Really fun, really challenging. Tried it a bunch of times, going for different builds. None of them seem effective enough to beat the waves around 5/6, but still damn fun.

Ok im going to update it a bit to make the mining more lucrative. (thanks for the suggestion Hypnohustla!) that is like a 10 sec change.

Would have liked to be able to move around in the combat stage. Lava was a bit hard to separate from gold and I often killed myself on it. Nice idea though!

ok its taking longer then 10 seconds ... XD trying to add a bit of custom difficulty so i can get a consensus on what you guys think the difficulty should be

@TeddyNashor says ...
Aug 26, 2013 @ 8:43am

OK! the level of difficulty modifier is complete! let me know what you guys think is a good value! (its on the title screen)!

Aug 26, 2013 @ 9:15am

Cool game! I always ran straight into the lava XD

Quite an unusual mix of genres, but it makes for a really fun game the way it keeps switching pace between levels. Nicely done!

I thought that the gameplay was very fun, although could do with a large amount of balancing. It was really hard to see what lava was at the first level, I never had enough money to upgrade, and in the shooting stage, I felt that it was impossible to shoot the enemies sometimes, as they were coming from different directions. Exciting music would have helped. Also, the graphics do suck, sorry, but the gameplay concept was great.

Neat game, a bit too hard from the 3rd level on. Also, the 'bigger bullets' button has the price off-screen.

I had a very good time playing your game :D

fun with lots of upgrades! The shooting segment is the best, but I got a low framerate on the mining segment so it felt choppy.

Good game! Fast paced.

Aug 26, 2013 @ 6:00pm

Level 4 and 285 gold! Pretty dynamic, I like it :)

Aug 26, 2013 @ 6:06pm

Solid, but becomes way too hard way too fast, especially if you are supposed to win at level 20. Barely got to Level 4.

But otherwise this was very fun! the mining shopping fighting gameplay was great! Wish there had been music or sounds.

The mining part it is fun, but the defender part is kinda boring

Interesting idea to switch between two types of gameplay!

Very addictive and fun! Didn't expect there to be 2 styles of gameplay, but it works really well.

Pretty fun game, loved the upgrades! :D

The mining is very fun and loved the laser upgrades. It would be easier if the upgrades were cheaper. Without cheats I reached level 6. With the proper balance it will be great!

Aug 28, 2013 @ 2:02pm

Quite fun, I liked the connection between the different parts of the game, it fit well. I made it to level 61 (that's what the game said at least. Might have been level 6 :D)

I loved the construction of the whole game; the mine upgrade defend structure was really well-thought out...

I think upgrades for the mining part could have added some variety to the playstyle (Were there any? If yes, I missed them and so apologize :P), and that the fights get too tough too fast. I understand it is a "defense" game and so movement would have made no sense, but I would have liked to be able to move in this game, at least in a small, confined area.

Overall pretty solid, with some polish and tweaking/balancing, this could sell a sponsorship, easy.

Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:13pm

Fun stuff, but a few things could be improved, especially sound is really missing from the game. And some small stuff. like the lava looking a lot like gold in the mining level, but the rest is cool already. Nice job!

Nice game! :)
I enjoyed playing this. The variety of weapons (and upgrades) made this fun.

Good fun to play!
