Nodevious

by Iyashikei - Jam Entry

A 2D fps of sorts about shooting aliems and resource management.
You must divert your limited energy between 5 ship parts that will help you catch up to the enemy's flying city.
Defeat it and claim victory against the Nodevious!


Controls

Left Click : Shoot

Mousewheel Up : Add energy to ship part, reducing its cooldown
Mousewheel Down : Take away energy from ship part

1 : Plasma blasters
2 : Laser cannon
3 : Missle
4 : EMP Blast / Shield generator
5 : Temporary Speed Boost


Tips :
- A fully charged shield generator will absorb all damage at the cost of its charge
- Missiles can temporarily overpower small shields
- EMP temporarly disables all energy shields, and destroys nearby enemies

I loved this, once I got the hang of aiming. Graphics are 2cool4school and sound direction is nice.

Music was one of the best I heard. I didn't really understand how all the system with the energy and missiles works. In the end, I still had a lot of fun playing it. The visor system could be improved, I had a hard time hitting enemies. Here is my playthrough: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIVX0VryhDo&list=PLmCAIfF6iKQWX1RhyAaKCdmk_61etZJ_9

Hey fellow devs!
Sorry I missed your game in the list before!

Damn I really like your artstyle, a bit jealous actually.
The aiming was a bit funny, it would have been more intuitive for where you actually aim to be on the mouse cursor, rather than that secondary one. Very fun game.

It kept force-closing for me :(

I did nothing special, just click-dragging to shoot and it just closes the window and opens a new one :(

The graphics are really cool, also the music, the aiming system is kinda strange but playable.

Old-school shooter, nice graphics. Double cursor fooled me couple times but it only adds fun

Dec 16, 2014 @ 4:47pm

That was fun! I liked the older style of the game.

Well executed style and theme. Brought me back to play SNES games like Top Gun, but better.

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.
