by Cheetoturkey - Compo Entry

I used 36 out of the 48 hours to make this game 4 hours of sleeping and 32 hours of pure game development with a burning desire to finish, This is the 3rd LD i participated in and im pretty happy with what came out.

Fizz X is a fun arcade space shooter which allows you to shoot the incoming enemies to gain points, points can then be used to buy turrets, upgrade your health, buy grenades and more! Challenge your friends and see how far you can get
(I made it to round 30 before dieing)

WARNING: Boss waves are messed up, only the first boss appears not sure why.
1. Left mouse button- shoot
2. Right mouse button - switch between Grenades/Regular Ammo
3. Escape - Opens the shop
4.Aim with the mouse button
I advise you to upgrade your guns first
Spend your points wisely!

I would love to continue this project! let me know what you think, and if i should continue the project or not.

The music track for this game is stellar. Perhaps that's because I have a soft spot for electronic arcade-feeling sounds. The mechanics are really nice and easy to learn. Well done!

Very fun game, nice graphics. It was a bit hard to throw grenades in the web player mode because it would show up the webplayer option thingy

I did have a problem with the turrets firing at a right angle to the barrel but other than that it was a fun game. Good visuals and audio.

Top tier music.

You might want to up the difficulty a bit or add a variety of enemy though. I'm just upgrading my gun + spread and I'm killing enemy really fast. Not to mention there's an instant kill powerup. :3

Great game, probably the one I've spend the most time yet on! But the difficulty doesn't scale properly, if you just buy better gun and spread on every level you're good to go, got to lvl 24 before I quit :)

Most fun game that I have played so far. Good graphics and fun gameplay. The hit was definitely a must. But after 10 minutes of play the game becomes way to easy.

Thank you all!!
Yea i agree with you that it was too easy after a while if my bosses didnt stop working last minute it would have been harder...I decided to continue the project and ill be sure to keep it difficult!

Love the music!

This was pretty fun, very hard, and well executed. Couldn't get past the first boss though, maybe I just suck.

Awesome music! But it was kinda challanging without finding the Shop with Escape. After that it was a breeze and awesome. Nice game!

Awesome music, and good game overall. I've only one complain, right mouse button should just fire a grenade, not switch weapons. Unless there's more weapon in later stages, that I'm not aware of.

Great music! I too got to 30, but I stopped because the game had gotten way too easy and there was no risk I would ever die.

Played it serval times, good fun!

On my last run got to the 16th wave with full health, and then died to... something? Perhaps I got shot, but my health clicked down once and I died with +48 displayed :(

Very fleshed out for a compo... Engaging gameplay, good sounds and effects. Upgrade system didn't seem very balanced, but very nice overall.

Nice switch between weapons, music is ok. The rpg system is a cool add.

Love the music, love the gameplay. Shame the other bosses didn't work out, but overall a really fun game!

Clicking too close to your ship does strange things to the bullets path. I had a couple of random powers activate, and I don't know where they came from, and I didn't have a good indication of my HP.
Other than that, was pretty good.

Hi there. Looks and sounds great, like the scope. Wasn't clear which turret you are upgrading. Controls need a bit of work, got a bit overmanic early on. Good job!

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. 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.
