CriteriaRankScore*Raw Score

Ranked from 6 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your submission match the theme?
- when you move you also shoot
- when enemies die you score points, but they also turn into blue gems (points pickups)
- when wave of enemies is over enemies turn into health pickups
- when you pick up health you gain health points but if your health is at maximum you gain points
- when you lose health, you also lose points

strategy angle:
- you can go for high kill count just going after enemies or you can kill less but pickup more blue gems
- in time between waves of enemies you can go for gem pickups to get more points, or health pickups, you choose depending on your health status.

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


The thing you control is bloody hideous. I love it! Bit of an exploit: shooting in both horizontal directions and drifting up and down seems like a bit of a flawless tactic.

Yeah, I know about expolits. But there's only so much you can do in one weekend. ;)


The aesthetics are incredible! This also fits in perfectly with the theme! GREAT JOB ( ̄︶ ̄)↗ 


Thanks! :D
