About

Last night I wanted to try making a game in an hour so I opened up a game idea generator, got a random game idea and went to work. It ended up taking closer to five hours between last night and this evening, but for making a game within a day I'm happy with the result.

I'd like to do more of these self-imposed 1-day prototypes to break the habit of fiddling with game ideas for far too long.

Hmm ... played for a bit, got to level 3 I think, shot a few and ... then the enemies stopped coming yet the game continued playing. Definite error.

Thanks dw817! I had some code that was attempting to add a small amount of variability to spawn time and movement speeds and I think in level 3 it was accidentally having the bots run right sometimes so they never made it on screen.

I removed the variable speeds for now, but if I continue with this game in the future I'd like to add a little randomness along with other enemy types and threats.

Thanks for fixing the game! I have to practice to improve my ballistics skills :D

Would be great to have the difficulty ramp up with the changes you mention.

YOU DEFENDED THE CASTLE.
SENSORS DETECT ANOTHER QUARTER IN YOUR POCKET.

Sorry, wrong game. But yeah, you should have more !
BTW it may be a cheat I don't know, if I can't peg him from a distance I wait till he gets very close and then just tap (O) to nail him.

I can do this pretty simply so that made the game a bit too easy to win.

Otherwise, nice work. Good ballistics. Gold star for you.

Its a little hard, but I like it. A fun and challenging game
