Description

Chromatik is a top down 2D shooter. I was a little overambitious with this project and couldn't get everything I wanted finished within the 48 hours. While I'm disappointed that the project came out so incomplete feeling, I am proud of what I did accomplish and look forward to pushing this game towards my full vision, which includes coop and versus multiplayer and different powerups based on your color.

Technology used

Unity Engine, Blender, Photoshop

Help / Controls

WASD to move, Left click to Shoot, Numbers 1-7 should change your color. Each color has a special attack [SPACEBAR] which share a global special cooldown. Unfortunately only the red and yellow skin currently have working specials.

    yeahhhh... it's extremely imbalanced. I was really time crunched at the end and basically just pulled random levers when it came to the stats for each enemy color. If you got past yellow and green which are way too tough themselves, you would have seen the horror that is cyan lol. I never even came close to beating cyan the few times I didn't die to yellow or green.

    The game is tough but surprisingly good looking. The light effects really make a difference. I think it's one of the better looking games this jam, you made good use of the Unity 3D.

    BTW, the plan was that each color would have 2 colors that it countered and 2 colors that countered it. So the speed of yellow would be countered by the slow ability that you could use in cyan stance. But I never got that far with making the abilities for each stance, so it ended up just being certain colors are too strong

    Pretty fun game. Tough though, I never got past the yellow guys.

    I'll add more links later for different versions as I have to go right now. Also if the web link is overly buggy maybe I can clean it up. I'll have to check the rules. It works on my comp though. :D
