This was a game jam made for the PIGSquad Summer Slow Jams. Unfortunately, I started at 1:00am the night before the end of the jam. I worked until 3am until I couldn't do math anymore, then picked it up the next morning and put in another 3 hours to get it done before the end of the jam. So... uh... excuse the code. It's game jam code. :)
Pop Shot! is a 4-player arena brawler where you eliminate your opponents by charging up shots and using them to knock your opponents into the spikes. You have 3 lives, and if you lose them all, you turn into a floating skull. While you're a skull, though, you can mash the X button to float just a teensy bit faster. If your skull hits the planet, you get an extra life and respawn! (The creative theme for the jam was "The World Is Alive", so in this game, "The World Is A Life".) 😆
I am horrendous at music, so all credit for the music goes to @Gruber who makes fantastic tunes for all of us to use in our games. 😊
Cool charging effect.. the respawn mechanic is an interesting one -I can see how it meets the theme, but also allows more space for fewer players, offsetting chance with player effort in order to gain another life. Would be interesting to see a method of deflection!
