Nuclear Arms 3: Atomic Reckoning

by Logicon - Jam Entry

Craig Killbane is back! We last left our hero attempting to destroy the trash star. In the process he was sucked into a trash singularity and stranded in deep space. The ships engine's have been disabled and an army of alien skeletons are invading to take his nuclear technology. You play as Killbane as he attempts to fix the engine while fighting back the alien menace

This game follows the adventures of Craig Killbane. You can check out the first 2 parts of the adventure from our past Ludum Dare submissions:

Nuclear Arms:

Nuclear Arms 2, Garbage Day:

This was our 3rd Ludum Dare game jam submission. It was also our first foray into making a 3D game. Our past experience allowed us to focus on trying some new things and this was the end result. We hope you like it!

Try and fix the ship to escape the alien menace!

Wow that was a lot of communists in one room. I had like 30 chasing me or something. Wish I was there though, my kind of people. Playing the bad guy is a good idea though! Clever! I'd pick skeleton communists over liberal freedom fighters any day!

Killbane has some sick arms Commander President. Good to see more first person games without the shooting kind of guns. Hands for life.

Found the interacting of objects (E to pickup) to be jenky, could be smoother. Eventually I was overrun by aliens.

Dec 14, 2016 @ 3:40am

Hahaha. I got silver-surfered. Well done, sir.

Nice job.

Your assets are nice and detailed. Music and Sounds are great, but a way to decrease the volume would be nice.^^ The voice acting is fun.

The game is not buggy, you can easily interact with everything, the goal and the way to achieve it is pretty clear.

Skulls are a kinda hard to kill, making the game a bit hard towards the end when there is a big swarm of them.

Nice 80's Duke Nukem presentation. I liked all the parts and the exuberance y'all tackled this with. I wished the fighting was better, although it improved slightly when I realized that I could throw so many things. The graphics were good and even the weird 2D art was charming.

The game is excellent. Very interesting mini story.I'm beginning to not really understand what to do, but then I saw that on the wall are all described in detail.Great. It was very difficult to move all the bombs, skeletons become very much. The Game Is A+

Fun game. Really liked the skeleton animations. Dialog was good too.

Cool, there is a lot here for a jam game! I would have liked it if it were easier to attack the aliens. Really nice visuals!

The phone call was great. I loved the anti-commie theme, very funny.

Dec 19, 2016 @ 1:16am

Great job! The skeletons get out of hand real fast. I couldn't get all of the bombs in the disposal before dying. But I did have fun. I really like the diagetic UI you used to display the objectives to the player. Great stuff!

I really like the humor and the game looked really nice. It was a lot of fun. It was well explained. My only complaint is that It took a long time to load so dying was kind of annoying. I really enjoyed it though.

The story introduction is quite funny. Also the skeletons are really well made.
