XenoD31

by LukuluK - Jam Entry

Xeno D31 is a solo and multiplayer shooter/Tower Defense in which each player has only 2 buttons to control his character.

Your objective is to protect your ship against waves of enemies.

You choose your buttons at the begining of the game but it's still not showed (so each player has to remember 2 buttons).

You can control several characters by yourself.


A game made by NoukProd (Graph/Anim) & Lukuluk (GD-LD/Dev)

Couldnt figure it out too much, but played a bit.

Great work on the graphics, fun playability.
The double control makes it confusing, but you can get used to it.
Some sounds would have made it more interesting.

No audio makes it boring =/

I man i can't coordinate that many guns! Would be fun to get some friends to try this all at once!

This was fun to play by myself, playing as 2 characters at once! I can imagine this would be really fun with multiple players too -- especially since you can't pass through other players, so you'd need to communicate.

The left/right controls are the opposite of what I expected (I though left would move me counterclockwise, and right would move me clockwise).

Nice work!

We wanted to make smth familiar to XenoD31 as well, but we came to another idea. The game graphics is very good.

Nice concept. Once you get too many guns going, you need the Steel Battalion controller to play it. ;)

Nice concept, a bit repetitive, but fun anyways. Some sound would improve it a lot.

I couldnt get past the create player screen for a while :(

When I did, it was a fun tower defense, but seems a little incomplete - What got in is really great though!

Nice job!

Simple, fun, nice graphics... With a bass techno sound this would be really great. :D

I like the gameplay of it, but missing some sounds that could have made it!

Solid entry; very cool use of theme (expanding screen), was fun and challenging without being trivial. The controls were a bit "reversed" for me (left seemed to go right, etc.), but that might have just been my perspective. Great game!

Nice survival shooter! Like the effect created by the lightings and the bullets

This was pretty tough. Even though it has no sounds it might be good to add some sort of damage indicators to your ship to know when it was hit and how much it has left. You can also play with enemies that can zig zag or jump around to increase challenge. This is a good start to a nice defense game I a really like that it is multiplayer and players can't go through each other to provide a sense of teamwork.

The graphics look really great!
Some kind of health indication would be nice, so that you know, when the game ends.
Nice work!

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
