Sphere

by holmberd - Mini LD 62 Entry

Arrows to fly, Ctrl to fire.

Was meant to add some intro and more features, i.e. difficulty, enemy item drop: health, weapon upgrade ect, but ran out of time so for now this is a small boss game with basic AI. My first Ludumdare game entry and my second attempt at HTML5 and canvas.

Tools Used:
Graphics: GIMP
Engine: PIXI/PHASER
Editor: Sublime Text


Healthbar used under open license from: Belahcen Marwane


Update: Scaled down the game dimensions to simplify gameplay experince.




Please enjoy.

Not sure how to win, but cool game. I included it in part 2 of my Mini LD #62 compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out! https://youtu.be/SzdjTgjodQI

The "boss" is the purple sphere and the healthbar for it is in the upper right corner. You win by shooting it using ctrl and avoiding the turquoise "minions". Thanks for the input, will check out your video.

I'm guessing the couple of times I died "randomly" were actually because a purple minion exploded and instantly killed me sending me to the game over screen. Took me a while to figure that out though. Pretty interesting mechanics and pretty tough game. Nice job.

Nice game, the controls are a bit tough to master as the player movement is not really tight, it can get a bit frustrating

That is a correct assumption Mike. I've been meaning to put in a delay and add a "death" animation after the player is killed, but ran out of time. Will probably put in an update this weekend. Thanks for all the feedback, appreciate it.
