  • Clear levels of enemies. - There are stationary turrets and moving droids.

  • Each shot deducts score. - Try to clear the level with the least shots possible.

  • The laser passes through enemies. - Extra points for chaining kills.

  • The laser bounces off mirrors. - Killing enemies after rebounding off mirrors multiplies score.

  • Beat the level before time runs out. The faster you beat the level, the higher your score.

Minimum shots required to beat each level:

  • Level1: one shot

  • Level2: one shot

  • Level3: one shot

  • Level4: two shots

Put your high scores for each level in the comments! :D

We flipped the theme on its head a little. We decided to interpret it as the "number of times you can use the weapon", rather than the "number of different ways you can utilize a single weapon". Yeah, kind of a cop out. Oh well.

We wanted to include some nice things like a level editor but didn't have time. Have fun playing the 4 levels we made though :)

fragileteeth 6 9 7 3 5 3 6 Not quite sure how theme adherent this is. But the idea is nifty. Reminds me of wii tanks. Cohesive art style combined with some shiny effects is a plus too.

Rawin (Mario) 8 7 7 7 7 8 8 Its very nice and quite smooth. I don't really see the "one weapon many uses" but the game is a huge success. Very well done
mcdroid (Laurent) 7 7 7 8 5 8 5 Great game of mirror and prism! Too bad there are only 5 levels
lambinvoker (Justin Trotter ) 8 10 9 3 8 7 8 Graphics look nice. Controls were okay but it was hard to aim before a shot. Its hard to tell if this is a puzzle game or just a isometric shooter.

ThunderousEcho 5 10 8 8 9 8 8 Nice use of Chromatic Aberration (and just generally looks amazing), great-looking menus, and great music. It is difficult to aim, though, and the difficulty ramps up too fast.
fil089 (Filipe Costa) 8 10 9 8 9 8 9 You... Have an interesting game here, but I think you sort of missed an oportunity with the theme. You see, your weapon is a lasergun, and you use it for fending of enemies and... that's about it. And there are so many other things you could have done here. Shooting through enemies is only the begining, you could use positioning to get panels to shoot by reflecting the laser and open doors, you could make so shooting an alarm would atract enemies to a certain spot... I, I... I played through your game and I thought "Where are the locked doors? Where are the reflection puzzles? Is there anything besides shoting enemies through mirrors?" Well, besides that, this game looks amazing, plays amazing, have an interesting idea... But I felt like it could be so much more... Great gameplay, great graphics, great audio, technicaly well made and with great controls... Only the theme following is where my complaints are.

    Is there a top-down mode? It would be way easier to aim and see what's going on in a top-down mode, as cool as the current camera angle looks.

    Decent scores, but ya gotta do it in the least shots possible man. And try to use mirrors and hit multiple enemies at once.

  • machinemalfunction (2 years 10 months ago)

    Also in case you didn't know, you can use Q and E to rotate the camera and get a better angle

  • watermelonpizza (2 years 10 months ago)

    Currently there isn't a top down view. But its a good idea, I'll consider adding it when I work on the game after the jam finishes.

    Lovely graphics, fun game. I included it in my Bacon Game Jam 10 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)
