Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Outside wants to kill you. Now the outside is coming inside...

Don't let the outside win!

WASD or Arrow Keys move, aim/shoot with the mouse

Wave based, defense shooter. The 3 characters have different waves. Each wave has a little message that will display when it starts, completes, and if you die on that wave.

Certain waves will have a red box around one of the static objects; if enemies enter the box, they will die but do damage to the hot zone.

On the windows build it looks best at 800*600.

Looks like I got the embedded version working!

The build on has some GUI graphics that got stretched, but it's still playable.

The embedded version seems to not like firefox and chrome so I took it down. The version (Web) link works for me on Firefox, Chrome, and Edge. Let me know if it doesn't for you.

Fun game. The controls are a little on the slippery side, but it was enjoyable to play. Good work!

You are the first game maker, so far, to make me laugh right out of the gate. The graphics are cool. I like how the enemies change based on your choice. The helicopter noise is interesting.. :) Needs more feedback when you get hit. The counter goes down, but I am not looking at the counter, I'm avoidin' missiles. Good game. Don't let the outside win!

A very good amount of content here, given the time frame, with hotzones, pickups and different stats all adding to the fun. Lots of quirky enemy types too, good stuff. I would have appreciated more feedback when you hit and get hit but that's a minor gripe really. Good work!

An interesting game to say the least

My only qualms are the lack of visual feedback when hitting enemies, and the slow movement of projectiles

The movement was very slippery, I could still control it and it was enjoyable. I'd add visual and audio feedback to improve this so you can tell when you hit something.

Great job :)

Finally, I can be an Apach !

Very ...creepy graphics. The uh... controls... are a little too fast, but they are smooth. I love that you can sexually identify as an attack helicopter! It gets a little too hard I think, probably because the enemies spawn wherever they want and not on the edges of the screen (so it's common for one to spawn on top of you and take out a bunch of your health)

Creamy memey. The controls can be pretty unresponsive, and the visual feedback isn't great, but the game is goofy with a decent challenge.

That was really, really amusing!

Dec 14, 2016 @ 10:15pm

A fun game with a lot of features, i think you should have worked at less fetearue but spend at them more time, for exampla at interactions bcause i didn;t have the idea if i hit something or i am beaing hit by something

The enemy variety is quite extensive. Would be cool if all characters had their own health refills as well :)

cool game.

The only game that allows me to identify as an attack helicopter. Brilliant. If you keep adding onto this I'd say a little health bar or some visual/audio indicators that enemies were taking damage. Good stuff!

It needs some indications that missiles are colliding with objects. Character moves to fast maybe play a little bit with scale of things so that you have enough place to avoid enemies and move slower.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 6:24pm

Wait. Did I just play a South Park?

Dec 16, 2016 @ 9:28pm

Nice Game I like the graphics.

Answer to your comment at my Project: I have planned to redo the whole game and add more minigames fix all the bugs and much more so stay tuned and subscribe to my Youtube channel(Acuadoy Studios).

Nobody said it was simple to stop a missile launcher invasion trying to take down your couch when controlling an helicopter. I guess.
Good fast paced game :).

Interesting little shooter, i think the hitboxes are a bit odd though,

i had a hard time navigating through the map, and the collisions between the ennemies and projectiles lack a bit of feedback (maybe a little explosion sprite or something)

Other than that i really liked the humor, finally a game for attack helicopters :p

this game has potential keep at it :)

This game needs some feedback for when you hit and do damage to an enemy. Also, in general I've found it's more fun to have weaker enemies rather than strong enemies, and instead have the challenge come the enemies attacks or the amount of enemies.

Not my kind of humor. It could use some more visual feedback on hits and when collecting powerups =)

Haha super funny entry. I laughed when I saw I could choose Attack Helicopter as a gender, which I picked for my first run. As someone else said it reminds South Park, which us good because I love it. The gameplay was simple but efficient and addictive.

I will be very honest, I felt very attracted to the idea of choosing an attack helicopter as my gender. And is nice that the assets change when the you choose a different gender. But the gameplay logic is quite simple and not very fun (needs way more feedback when you shoot and hit something)

I found myself wishing for both feedback when attacks connect and the ability to shoot continuously by holding down the mouse instead of button mashing the whole time. The controls seem extra slippy for the female character, who I constantly found myself having to extract from corners.
