1HGJ: Whirlpool

whirlpool.png

WHIRLPOOL, a game made in almost exactly one hour for the One Hour Game Jam. This time the theme was one or both of Can't Stop or Shopkeeper. I chose the Can't Stop theme. Plays in nearly any browser.

Rescue the castaways from the whirlpool, and then sail away to escape! The sooner you scoop up and rescue someone, the higher your score.

--CONTROLS--
ARROW KEYS to move your boat.
R KEY to restart when the game is over.

Artwork and event coding by me. Sound effects made in LabChirp and BFXR.

I like how this one turned out. I started it by messing around with the Clickteam Physics tools and specifically the Physics Magnet (like I used in You Have to Put the Skull on the Skeleton, but that was a hot mess so I just used other built-in movements for a satisfying old-skool game here. Enjoy!

Spirograph Skies

spirographskies.png

This is basically The Terrible Terrible Turret multiplied by 12. Though, this really began as a hack of Helipong.

Light up the night sky with a scintillating array of automatic laser fire! Use the arrows to rotate the ring of cannons, and see how long you can last before they are destroyed in a glorious blaze.

TIP: Get a friend to watch you play so they can tell you how cool the screen looks.

Oh, and here's something neat: unlike The Terrible Terrible Turret, I randomised the variables in the attack progression sequence. So, you'll get a slightly different kind of laser show every time you play.

Rotation Invaders

RotationInvaders.png

A Space Invaders type game inspired by my own Prizeturret, WarioWare: Twisted! and that one level of Karoshi 2.0.

Left - move in what would be the left direction were the screen right-side-up.
Right - move to the right, relative to the ground.

You fire automatically. Your missiles disobey gravity and will always fall "downward" regardless of the screen's rotation. The enemy's missiles do not, so try and avoid them constantly.

Helipong

"The colours... I can't remember what colours look like... so much gray... help..."

"It's like Pong, only in two dimensions! Goodbye left and right, hello 360! Great for kids and adults - three mice out of five!"

This is a sort-of sequel to my own Magnetball. In this game you must also keep the ball within a circular perimeter, but your only tool is a spinning Kururin-like paddle. Hit the ball when the paddle is at the right angle to keep it in play.

RotoBuggy

This is a one-button game of avoiding danger in a distant moon base. While its control scheme is familiar - press button to make the spinning craft move forward - the wrinkle is that it keeps spinning even while moving, so you'll be constantly moving in wide arcs. Be careful, and watch out for those cannons!

This is loosely inspired by the Taito arcade game Volfied in scenario.

Saucer Sandy's Meteor Melee

saucersandysmeteormelee.png

This is a quick arena-type game featuring Saucer Sandy, a character from an old game of mine who is evidently down on her luck lately. At least she's got a new weapon to try out, though.

Score points by harmlessly blowing up your two friends and collecting desserts until you get tagged. But don't blow yourself up! That would be completely unconscionable.

Use the arrow keys to move and Space to drop mines.
