Ludum Cascade

by foyosoft - Compo Entry

Prevent nasty aliens entering the Ludum Cascade and travelling to earth!

You play "Dude in Spacesuit" who must protect earth from three mysterious alien types hellbent on travelling to earth. You are equipped with three weapons, but which weapon is used against which alien type? Unfortunately the commander of the base was killed just as he was explaining the situation.

You pretty much have the info you need. Aliens, weird portal, stop them from entering, use the right ammo. Got it!

There are 10 waves and one room, how far can you get?

Q and A move up and down, O and P move left and right, SPACE to fire.

I recommend 4:3 in windowed mode because that's the only aspect ratio I tested. Sorry...

The game was written in Unity 5.5, complete source has been provided.

Nice little idea, I like the fact that you need to change weapons according to the enemy. The graphics are okay, I like the light effect of the portal.

However, the main problem for me are the controls. Why didn't you use WASD or the arrows instead of this weird QA - OP combination ? It makes the game really hard. Changing the weapon is also not easy, at first I thought I couldn't change once I had selected one.

Nice work though, good luck ! ;)
