Illuminasteroids

by Otopkin - Compo Entry

You move with the mouse, OK? I'm sure you'll figure it out. QWERASDF are for casting abilities (even though there aren't 8 abilities in total in the game)

-------------------------LORE---------------------------
100 years from now the Earth is under control of the Illuminarti society. 100 years and 1 day from now the world is no longer under the control of the Illuminarti society since you got exiled. Now survive in the space in this top down shooter featuring AAA features like MOVEMENT and SHOOTING and 2 TYPES OF ENEMIES and WEAPONS WHICH KILL YOU INSTEAD OF KILLING THE ENEMIES SO YOU CAN EFFICIENTLY ENJOY THE VARIETY OF ENEMIES ON YOUR SCREEN. It will make your pussy wet.

----------------ABILITIES DESCRIPTION----------------
•Noobstrike - you just shoot something, only noobs use it
•Asteroid grab - On first cast you grab the nearest asteroid, on second cast you shoot it away and on third cast you explode it. Write it down.
•Blink - LoL flash ripoff. Don't use it, it's buggy and gets you killed.
•Seppukorang - You throw a boomerang. If you hit you deal little damage. If you don't hit it comes back to you and deals half your HP in damage. If you hit asteroid with it it spawns a shit load of asteroids that come after you to avenge their fallen from a seppukorang brother.
•aSTEROID - Makes all asteroids bigger and freezes them. Everything that touches them dies.

I found it humorous although the art and gameplay could be much better.

The game mechanism is clear and interesting. The difficulty rises a bit fast, though. LOL at the end game comments, it seems you put a lot of effort on that :D

I guess better there are some explanation about the abilities so players don't get too confused...

This gives me happy memories of Sphere of Chaos! Love the personality you've injected into it.

Great diversity of enemies and attacks, although the action can be confusing at times.

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. 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.
