CriteriaRankScore*Raw Score

Ranked from 1 rating. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your submission match the theme?
You have basic projectile attacks and a powerful charge blast that leaves you open to enemy attacks, but kills them in one shoot. You recover health by picking up enemy loot drop that driver you insane which makes you lose health, also minimalist approach for buttons.

Used Audacity for audio capture and editing.

Lovely graphics! I included it in my Game Maker Toolkit’s Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)


Glad you liked the visuals, sorry 'bout lackluster gamplay.

Liked your video series on the jam, graet work covering all games.
