Explosion Time

by Fervir - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This game is a side scrolling action-platformer where you chase down a helicopter.
Explosions, enemies, meteors, powerups and explosions everywhere.
Every 10 seconds, meteors will fall and destroy the landscape.
Stuck in a hole?
Use your rockets to blast a way through or your lasers to help you jump over.
Keep moving right to create a randomly generated fresh level and boss.

A-Move Left
D-Move Right
Left Click-Lasers
Right Click-Rockets

Cool looking game, but it didn't seem to have a goal :P Love the dirty look of the graphics and the crazy action!

Best game I've played so far. It also has, by far, the best visuals. I'm amazed you made so many great sprites so fast. Nice job.

Why is it raining meteors.
Why am I shooting lazer beams from my hands.
Why are octopus and helicopter things trying to kill me.

A+ would play again.

Pretty frantic! I got a little slowdown at times when there was too much going on. Fun though, and nice design on the enemies!

Awesome job, fun game =D

Aug 27, 2013 @ 3:58am

That was delightful! The action was hilariously over-the-top in the most exciting of ways! And the hopping around destructible terrain, and the desperate shooting felt oh so right.

It got a bit weird toward the end though, it feels like when the ground beneath you is all blown up, you should fall and die, I ended up loop-falling quite a bit before finding more land.

Overall tons of fun, and I will definitely be replaying this later.

Fun game but it needs a goal to be more interesting. Just add score and leaderboard and it would be very nice.

The amount of action on the screen was insane! I had a wonderful time trying to survive... How on earth did you do all this within 48 hours? That's godlike!

Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:26pm

Not even kidding, I spent like 30+ hours making the game.
I'm really experienced with Construct Classic though, which is really good at putting together rapid prototypes.

Aug 28, 2013 @ 10:28pm

Oh man super difficult but excellent fun game! I loved this one, please turn it into a full game!!

I had a lot of fun with excessive upgrades, being able to freely navigate in all directions using recoil and such.

Real nice, no idea it had been made with Construct Classic until I read it the description! Good work fellow AGDG'er *tips fedora*

That was awesome! Kind of mindless fun but crazy fun! Overall it was pretty good! I especially liked the slow motion bits to escape the meteors!

It's action packed and much fun to blast through! Cool game

Sep 5, 2013 @ 2:18am

Woah, destructible terrain and meteors. This is crazy!

Loved it, but the random (?) slow-downs were really annoying.

Absolutely loved this game! I played until I spent most of my time flying with my guns (their shots covered the entire screen if I centered myself at the top), 7-8 rockets at a was awesome. Really glad you didn't cap the upgrades really low.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
