Artifact Hunter

by CMLSC - October Challenge Entry

Artifact Hunter is a bullet hell that was originally made for Ludum Dare 36. You play a character who is searching an old temple for artifacts, however, you find something unexpected at the end...

In Artifact Hunter you collect artifacts that give you special powers(like speed boosts or slowing down time)! The gameplay is level based with "checkpoints" and new stuff every now and then. One of the unique things about Artifact Hunter, is that you have to figure out what different artifacts do. You must also figure out various ways to make use of multiple artifacts at once. Another thing you must figure out, is how the various hazards work!

Please keep in mind, that the game has improved a TON since the first version in Ludum Dare 36.

There is also a hidden storyline. If anybody has a guess, please send an email to shaulosgames@gmail.com about what you think it is! :D

I think this game screams for a playable demo, as you've mentioned is has improved very much since the LD36 version. So based on the LD version and the youtube video, I have to say it plays well, although I'm not sold on the graphics. Everything that happens in the foreground is cool, but there should be stuff happening in the background, and it is often hard to see dark obstacles on a dark background.

I was planning on working on some decorations and other random stuff in the background as part of the updates if I end up continuing Artifact Hunter. :P
