Submitted4 years ago


The initial idea was to make energy collection + space battle, I planned it to be 7 energy types like the colors of the rainbow, each energy should give you a different weapon types, but I decided to trim it all down, because I figured I won't have the time to finish this up.

This is far from being a complete game, it's missing graphics, game design, sound, story and everything else. unfortunately I didn't have the full 48h to work on it, I think I could make more of with it if I had like a day more.

Although this very lame state of game, I decided to publish it, so i can get your feedback, for anyone who use Lua or Love i would very much love to hear also code reviews. As my description says, I'm very new to game development and also to Lua itself.

I used http://vrld.github.io/hump/ for camera! Too bad I didn't find out about it earlier.

Just try it, you might find it can be a little bit fun smashing into colored 2D balls with a spaceship.

    Don't be discouraged, I failed my first jam. It's a great learning experience. :)
