Cube Destroyer

by Hendri - Jam Entry

Game's objective is simple just destroy enemies before they destroy you.

There might be some bugs in the game and I'm sorry if I can I fill fix them, so let me know about them.

The game was originally meant to be posted for compo, but I encountered a bug and I didn't have enough time to fix it.

Pretty nice. Occasionally when I fired, the bullets went behind me though, and I lost health this way a couple of times. There's a couple other complaints I have too - sometimes, the 'prepare for next wave' message appeared before I'd actually completed the current wave, and got in the way, plus the 'exit game' button doesn't exit the game. However, the controls were responsive and intuitive, and the basic concept was executed pretty well.

Nice simple game, could have added more to it though?

Simple enough gameplay. There's a slight problem (if you can call it that) in that the screen is twice as wide as it is tall, so you don't really see enemy cubes coming from the top and bottom as early as from the left and right.

I'm uncertain if the cubes had a lot of hitpoints, or if the bullets were moving too fast and going through the cubes! Either way, something funny was going on there.

I really love how controls respond! it would it be nice that at least the bullet instances were destroyed when colliding with enemies.

The approach was pretty simple, but I liked it. It would be cool if there was any indication that a hit had registered, or maybe if the bullets stopped on contact.

It would be nice if the cubes had healthbars, and if there were some form of score. Still, it's a good start, just very skeletal as it.

Not bad at all. Would be nice to get some hit feedback on the cubes though.

Nice start! It's odd to see my bullets go through the enemy cubes, perhaps you want to make them stop as they hit? Aside from that, this has the seed of a good game!

I think it gets boring after around 30 seconds :) Needs more work. And make some explosion effects too :D

Very simple, it works well. I had fun shooting the cubes :)

I'm in doubt. If I'll talkin about realistic aspects this game will looks really poor. But from the minimalistic point of view this game looks so fancy! I like this style! xD

Pretty basic, not much to it. Nice attempt none the less. :)

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.
