Pivotal Pointby Juno Nguyen - 48 Hour Compo Entry
My first entry for Ludum Dare, created in about 12 hours. A lot could have been better, that is certain. There is no sound because I ran out of time, and I was supposed to preparing to go to work while writing this (I have a shift job). Balancing is not in a good shape either, as this is an incredibly difficult skill that I tried to bite off more than I can chew. I also learned that making AI was a pain. Outcome results may vary despite the same input action.
Despite these and some cut content, the game was more or less close enough to my vision, hence, it is submitted.
The mighty Lother Empire is going to launch an airborne invasion on the Kaedani scums to your right. Your sabotaging party screwed up and only you survived. Use your only remaining remote-controlled missile to make way for the invasion force. You get only one shot.
While not steering the missile, use arrows to move the camera.
Feedback is highly appreciated.
Disclaimer: Some graphic assets (Stars, Starfighters, Missile, and Blaster projectile specifically) were re-used from previously cancelled and unreleased projects. Created using Construct 2.
Update on '13 Dec 15th, 2325 SGT: Fixed some balancing issues and updated AI.

MORE TIPS AND DETAILS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.
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.
