Dodger
« on: January 16, 2015, 05:21:01 pm »
Update (18 Jan 2015):

I released a new version which includes the following changes:

- increased the difficulty
- added a difficulty indicator in the top right corner (the bar fills as the game gets more difficult)
- added power-ups that spawn every few seconds
- fixed and adjusted various things. your score will also increase faster now

Power-ups will disappear after 15 seconds if not picked up. These are the current power-ups:
- red: +1 health
- black: invulnerability for a few seconds
- blue: destroy all enemies

Hey guys,
I'm currently doing a personal challenge where I'm creating one game every 1-2 weeks. I created my new game "Dodger" within the last week.

About:
In this game you have to dodge enemies that pass the screen. The longer you're able to dodge them, the more points you'll score.

Download:
Click here to download

Controls:
Move with the arrow keys/WASD. Press Escape to pause and resume the game.
Navigate the menus with the arrow keys/WASD, confirm with Enter/Space, go back with Escape/Backspace.

Screenshots (version 0.1.0.0):









Misc:
The game is pretty much complete as far as game mechanics, audio, etc. go. The gameplay could be improved for example by adding power-ups, and I might add features if you guys want them. All suggestions are welcome!

Oh and of course if you find any bugs I'll be very happy to fix them, so please let me know :)

Enjoy!

Nice little game, quite like! :)

I've one suggestion though, start with more blue blocks or ramp things up quicker, because in the beginning it's only a waiting game, till there are enough blocks so you actually have to dodge. ;)

Yeah, the difficulty is increased in the latest version. I hope it's more fun now :)

I also added more stuff like power-ups (check the original post for details).

Hope you enjoy it, and as always all feedback is welcome!
