Snakeship

by toastedgames - MiniLD 67 Entry

Hey guys! This is my entry for MiniLD67. I didn't actually get to finish this one, I had a lot of schoolwork to deal with. Regardless, I wanted to submit *something* so I spend my last few hours giving it a title screen and whatnot.

Have fun! ^_^

You're right, our ideas are really similar! Asteroids with Snake controls and Snake with Asteroids controls. I found it easier to run in circles spamming fire. Since the bullets never die, I ended up filling the map with bullets. I think giving the bullets a lifespan like the original will be more effective than the current heat bar for this. There was also not much motivation in picking up pellets since it permanently makes dodging harder. It may be better to give the pellets a long term bonus like a score boost or multiplier.

I saw you working on it on twitch, too bad you didn't have time to completely finish it

@ivxnuke Yeah, I think I will add a lifetime to the bullets in the Post-LD version of the game, but not remove the heat timer. The pellets were actually supposed to double as powerups that made bullets go faster/split/explode etc, but I didn't have time to implement it.

@CyberStarLight Yeah... I wish I did. I saw your game for LD35. It looks really cool! Did you make an entry for this one?
