Tri Soup Shmup - Pirate Kart Edition

triSoupShmup2_FB.png

An abstract shmup i originally made for a LD48 , but added 24h more into it and overhauled a bunch of gameplay. Most of the time was spent on working out the gameplay and pacing.

Eventually a single hit from an evil red triangle will kill you (they do more damage the longer the game plays), so stockpiling energy early on and good timing of 'Time Slow' and 'Teleport' will keep you alive longer as well as boost the score multiplier.

Instructions are onscreen.
Love it? Hate it? Help me make it better and tell me about what you like and dont like about it.

Elute

Ever played one of those unforgiving Spectrum/BBC Micro games with its unwieldy controls, lack of instructions and harsh five life restrictions? Well this game is like a bad version of that. This is my first ever submission, in fact it's my first ever complete game. Please don't go easy on me! Music by Boxheadreplica, used with permission.

Twin Jerk

twinjerk.PNG

A game of aerial battle.

Short, c. 3 min shmup challenge. Inspired by early Toaplan games.

Just discovered, that I forgot to put it in the kart section, so I added some enemies, changed a bit the title screen and here it is.

All Against One

aao.png

The young Claude, King of the Sky, is ready to marry. A tournament is declared. He will pick his new queen among those few who can best him in sky combat! Rulers from all over the world are gathering. Who shall surpass his challenge?

Arrows - fly.
X - attack.

This is inspired primarily by Ciel Gris, and secondarily by a number of shmups from the past, such as: Garden of Coloured Lights, White Butterfly, Guxt, Gradius Gaiden, Nitty Gritty, ESP Ra.De., Clean Asia and G-Type. And there's some Finderseek and Super Crate Box influence as well.

I decided that, since it's often been said that my games are too hard, that the only penalty for getting hit is losing 33 points. You gain 100 points per level cleared.

There's a Windows version, but if you're on another system you can play the HTML5 port which is rendered a tad blurry on most browsers.

Some Faces

Screen shot 2011-10-23 at 9.31.27 PM.png

spent the better part of the past week porting bulletml to lua. And then I made this horrible game with it in a few minutes. There are no win screens. Or lose screens.

here is the love file if you want the source, or the exe doesn't work (I couldn't get it to, but my windows install is jacked), everything is fine in the standard love though. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/43672/some_faces.love

Ultimate Game

This is loosely inspired by Claude Shannon's "Ultimate Machine", but is a little bit different. It's also inspired by Retro Sabotage.

Click a spaceship to place a target. Click another to fire a laser between two ships. Try and destroy multiple ships in one laser strike!
