this game is for ludum dare 36 participation.
cast spell and beat invaders.
z: pick 1 letter
for example, when you pick "BEAM" you cast beam.
sorry it have only few words for now.
You have a good game field going on here. Just a few suggests.
You might have sentence completion questions.
"Four score and seven ... ago" (Years)
"It's do or ..." (Die)
"The answer is blowing in the ..." (Wind)
"A man and a woman had a little ..." (Baby)
"Pie R ..." (Square)
"Heavenly ..." (Gates)
"Ventriloquist ..." (Puppet)
"A math symbol is called an ..." (Operand)
So easy questions to begin with, and harder and trickier ones below that will encourage someone to play again and try a different answer to get past a level. Also maybe change the invaders every 2-levels and gain a new life every 5-words too.
Special types too. One invader goes slow. One can hop. One can fly. Each has their own attributes. Each is zapped according to how close they are to the city.
Answer correctly and you get a nice special effect of the closest invader getting zapped (particle effect) (plus one point !).
Get the WRONG answer and the aliens speed up for a bit ! (so start them out really slow).
Naturally if one of the aliens hits the city then the player loses a life. However ! Then a bonus could be given.
1st life lost (show beginning letter of answer)
2nd life lost (show beginning letter and dots "." to show length)
3rd life lost (show 2nd letter of word still with dots)
