How does your submission match the theme?
Our game is a side scrolling space shooter where you play as a ship without weapons. As a result your main engine, asteroid shield and your fuel tanks all serve a duel purpose. Your engine is used to move and is also your only offence tool, capable of melting enemy in seconds. Your shields turn any missiles they stop into fuel pickups. Your fuel bar also functions as your health bar. Taking damage will cause you to leak fuel and if you run out of fuel your ship will fall down and explode. Fuel pickups also help guide the player, keeping them on track without being obnoxious.

Quite complicated  to maneuver the ship but really good idea, the shield and also the engine for the final stage.


Thanks for the feedback. We're not all that happy with the ships movement either but hey you got 48 hours somethings going to be unfinished.
