Yet again, I've made another game for Ludum Dare :D



It's a rather simple side on shooter, where you fight your way through (literally) endless waves of enemies, that get harder with each wave.

There are a few little bugs in it, and the difficulty might not be quite right (It was built in 48 hours :P), but it is playable.

The game and source code can be downloaded from here (Download Release-Patch01.zip).

There is also a timelapse of it's development here.

Very funny game :D

As you might know, there is a walking bug: The keys A and D often have no effect when I am standing, I can only jump away. And I find the golden pistol too weak for its price. And in the main menu, there is no text on the buttons.

Thanks, I wasn't aware that no text was being drawn on the main menu.

I think that I've fixed the walking bug as well, I haven't been able to get stuck yet (I changed the collision detection code, and changed the game to use a fixed time step instead of a dynamic one).

I also buffed up the golden pistol a tad as well :D (Increased the damage it deals, and lowered the cool down time).

You have GOT to teach me how you made the tile engine

This game is brilliant! Also, the source code is very clean and it runs very smoothly. It's pretty difficult but I might just be bad at platformers, definitely my kind of game! :) Graphics are excellent and retro. There is a glitch with the tiles though that when you jump they seem to have gaps in between them at times. The random generation of the maps is very neat!

I just run out of ammo right away.  How do you get more?

I think you have to press R. Maybe it's also moving the mouse off the screen, I don't remember ;)

It's a fairly simple approach to it, it's basically all in a quad-tree. I'll try to write up something about it in the next few weeks though.

Yeah, after submitting it, I realised that the difficulty is fairly brutal :P

As Nexus has already mentioned, you should be able to reload using R.
