Fun combat and HUGE amounts of content, especially for a jam game. Enjoyed this one a lot!

Nice one! Interesting concept which led to some tricky moments. Personally I'd have liked a bigger screen, as it's quite tough to see what's going on when it's small, but I enjoyed my time with this!
You are very right! There were a selection of melee weapons which somehow stopped working about an hour before I had to upload. I couldn’t fix them, so i turned them into a crossbow instead.
It has come to my attention that the upload failed, and no downloadable files are available. Obviously, this is a mistake. Itch.io will no longer allow uploads as the jam has ended.
I have uploaded the file here instead: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1e01q14lol6n7c8/bubbleknight%28gmtkjam%29.exe?dl=0
I HOPE THIS IS OKAY SORRY.
I'm very proud to announce that my first game is now available for download!
OverHeat is a top-down side scroller. With a laser that increases in damage as it gets hotter, can you balance your firepower and reach a high enough velocity to catch up with the alien mothership?
- Three unlockable ships with different special abilities
- Modular powerups that interact with each other
- OverHeat laser blaster - the hotter your weapon, the more damage you'll do - but if you overheat, you'll need to wait for it to cool down
- Literally no context for your actions
- Score-modifying challenge modes that unlock on completion
- A secret cheat button. Warning: Pressing the secret cheat button might break the game. I am not responsible for this.
OverHeat is free to download, but if you really enjoyed it and wish to make a donation to support further development of this and other projects, I'd be incredibly grateful! No obligation, of course.
This is my first start-to-finish game project. I'd love to know what you think! Comments are welcome here, on Twitter (@BJRose) or on my personal blog (http://bjrose.wordpress.com/).
Whatever you think, thanks so much for checking out the project!
