Notepad Hero

by hadongee - Compo Entry

Notepad Hero!

In this one room roguelike you fight against other geometry in a small space which continually gets more cramped with enemies. Fight for the best highscore!

There are basic powerups to improve stats such as bullet speed, movement speed, damage, firing speed and more!

Along with this come 5 unique enemy types. The Bouncer, Soldier, Sploder, Buster and Spawner.

The idea for the spawning mechanics came from a passage on the risk of rain about page ( where it states the game is run by a hidden "director". As the game goes on this director has more points at his disposal to spawn more and more enemies.

This game is so addictive! It went from a simple shooter into a bullet hell! Nicely done. Would play it again sometime :D.

Not bad! Audio was a little repetitive but the game was good overall.

Damn. A super solid game. This is something I'd play for hours when bored. Nice enemy and sound design, swmooth controls.

Hey, I can't run it on linux! I marked it as exutable. After first run, it says: There is no data folder

Pretty solid! Nothing new, but plays really well.

The beginning feels a bit slow after you played a few times though.

It's not super original but it's well made and super addictive, I've spent more time than I should have playing this!

The controls are tight with one exception, you ove faster diagonally, 5m/s up and 5m/s right add up to 7.07m/s diagonally so you might wanna account for that.

Overall this is the most addictive LD game I've played so far!

Music is a bit repetitive but I am glad it is there. I had a lot of fun with this. Nice sorta Geometry Wars game but with a cool levelling up mechanic. Great work!

I kill all of the shapes with edges! For I am circle and I dominate all! Great game! Loved it. Reminded me of Geometry Wars.

Simple yet fun and quite challenging. Well done!

Playing against different enemy types is huge fun. :)

It felt a bit unfair to lose 3 health points for one shot, but not frustratingly unfair.

My score is 2628!
