BOOOST! A Retro Escape SHMUP for Ludum Dare #LD34

Ludum Dare 34 done! Always a fantastic game jam with the most awesome community.

The theme this time was two-way tie between Growing and Two Buttons, and to make a long story short, I tried at first to do both with an idea that was seriously too much for me for 48 hours, and abandoned it to start another game about 14 hours into the 48.

The result was BOOOST, a two-button game of escaping, shooting, but mostly escaping. While shooting. You’ll see!

The game was favourably reviewed, and was rated 72 overall in the solo compo, so that’s pretty rad! 🙂

Play BOOOST Enhanced version on itch.io!

Landshark Missile Attack’s post-LD48 MASSIVE update

Landshark Missile Attack started its life at Ludum Dare 29 as my first solo jam :D

Play the post-compo updated version here:
http://www.twoplusgames.com/landsharkv2

Changes include:

  1. A thumpin’ track by Tim Harbour! Unfortunately hadn’t gotten to sound effects yet.
  2. Focussed on one level, removed others for now.
  3. Screenshake! Of course!
  4. Removed time limit.
  5. Fixed stuttering bullet time.
  6. Health + death mechanic added.
  7. Eat people to heal.
  8. Removed swimming up walls for now.
  9. Added enemy dropship.
  10. Aerial dodge – double tap forward, left or right while airborne!
  11. Missiles and dodge energy reload when you land.
  12. So wow, so much. Can’t remember.

So, some questions for you if you had time to give it a go:

  1. Did you find it laggy? Was the performance much different between the Windows and the online version for you?
  2. The direction I’m heading in is “Crimsonland in 3D with Bullet-time and possibly multiplayer”. How does that sound to you?
  3. How does the handling of the shark feel to you? Are you comfortable with jumping, aiming, and aerial boosting?
  4. How “fair” does it feel to you? How’s the challenge at the moment?
  5. Did you see any blatant bugs?
