Spaceship Invasion

by shesaidgraves - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is my game, Spaceship Invasion!

I'm fairly happy with this one, although I couldn't implement a music crossfade feature I wanted to.

Please note that this is a buggy gamemaker game that is only available for Windows.

Mission Orders:
Shoot as many enemies as possible

In Light mode, you can shoot normally,
in Dark mode, you can regain ammo as indicated in the top left, but cannot shoot.

- Mouse to move
- Left Mouse to Shoot
- Right Mouse to Switch modes
- Esc to Exit

Thanks for playing!

Congrats on your game! I really liked the reload feature you went with here as opposed to the usual blast away like crazy space shooter. Some explosion effects would have been good and also destroying the players bullet when it hits an enemy, although perhaps you set it up like that on purpose to go with the limited ammo? Cheers, Ben.

The idea is an interesting one :)

The actual feel of a shooter is missing though. No shoot sound, explosions.

The music gets annoying really really fast ;)

Quite a cool idea, really liked the reload mechanic. The beam enemies kill you pretty quick though, I think I would have liked to have been introduced to them more gently!

The game was pretty good! I found it annoying how after you lost it would show your logo again every single time. It would be nice if it just went to the game. But either than that good job!

Good job. Super simple, straight forward and pretty fun. Theme and controls are well executed. I got 60 points.

Simple and fun game. Your bullet is hard to see. Interesting way to control movement and switch worlds.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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 ( 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.
