This is an 11-level demo to give you a taste of it. Let me know what you think so far. For this build, you can press E to skip a level. In the future, there will be an &quot;overworld map&quot; of some kind to pick your level.

This is a playtest of a single level of Crunch, an RTS I'm working on. Let me know how you fare in this one level demo. I appreciate all feedback!

Work together to loot and destroy all the alien ships in each level. </p> <p>Each player operates their own screen - Player 1 on top in red, Player 2 on bottom in blue.</p> <p><strong>Best with 2 players. Feel free to try this out without a partner, but it is extremely difficult to play both screens at once!! Get a friend and try it out. Communication is key!</strong></p> <h1>HOW TO PLAY</h1> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/64748/7_statusbar.png" alt="" /> <p>This is your status bar - From left to right it shows the state of your 4 directional shields, your hull health, how much loot you've collected, and the most recent signal that you've intercepted from an enemy ship.</p> <h1>SCREENS</h1> <p>From any screen, <strong>press Z to go to screen select:</strong></p> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/64748/hal.png" alt="" /> <p><strong>UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT</strong> to go to the MAP, POW, WEP, or HAX screen.</p> <h2>MAP</h2> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/64748/map.gif" alt="" /> <p><strong>LEFT/RIGHT to turn</strong><br /> <strong>UP/DOWN to engage thrusters.</strong></p> <h2>POW</h2> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/64748/pow.gif" alt="" /> <p><strong>UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT to move cursor.</strong><br /> <strong>X to pick up/place a Power Core.</strong><br /> WEAPONS: makes weapons stronger and longer range<br /> SHIELDS: makes shield recover faster<br /> SENSORS: zooms out the MAP screen<br /> ENGINES: accelerate faster and higher top speed<br /> RESERVE: unused cores ready to be allocated, though weapons cool down faster if you have reserve cores.</p> <p>Downloaded Cores work just like regular power cores, but are lost at the end of the level.<br /> Later in the game you may unlock QUANTUM CORES, which have a special function depending on which system you put them on. </p> <h2>WEP</h2> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/64748/wep.gif" alt="" /> <p><strong>UP/DOWN to select weapon</strong><br /> <strong>LEFT/RIGHT on PHASER to adjust angle</strong> (See clock angles on MAP screen).<br /> <strong>X ON PHASER to fire.</strong><br /> <strong>X ON MGUN to lock on</strong> to a target when the green cursor is right on top of it. MGUN will fire continuously once locked on, until lock is broken by distance or line of sight.</p> <h2>HAX</h2> <img style="margin-bottom:16px" border=0 src="/media/64748/hax.gif" alt="" /> <p>When enemy ships take actions, they create signals that your ship can intercept. Signals are generated when an enemy ship: 1. Fires, 2. Hits you, 3. Gets very close to you, 4. Is hit by your PHASER A or PHASER B, 5. When you lock on to it.</p> <p><strong>UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT to move cursor.</strong><br /> <strong>X to capture a ship's signal</strong> - you can only capture signals from one ship (one color) at a time, and you can only capture unique symbols.<br /> Move cursor all the way to the right to select a HACK once enough signals are captured.</p> <p>HACKS:</p> <ul> <li>TARGET (costs 1 signal): Lock your MGUN and aim your PHASERS at the ship.</li> <li>LOOT (costs 2 signals): Take 1/3 of the loot remaining from the enemy ship.</li> <li>VIRUS (costs 3 signals): Confuse the enemy ship into attacking its friends.</li> <li>DOWNLOAD (costs 4 signals): Steal a power core from the enemy ship. (Once per enemy)</li> <li>REPAIR (costs 5 signals): Gain 50 hull. </li> </ul> <h1>TIPS</h1> <ul> <li>Start out by putting some power into sensors so you can see more of the map. Don't forget to power shields when in combat, or weapons. Engines are important for escaping a bad situation.</li> <li>For new players, it might be best for one player to call the shots and stay on the MAP screen. As you improve, experiment with a different division of labor.</li> <li>Using the LOOT hack is important so you can buy power cores between levels. You can loot the same ship multiple times with diminishing returns.</li> <li>Try to avoid engaging more than one enemy at a time, or use the VIRUS hack to gain an advantage.</li> </ul> Tue, 05 Apr 2022 22:22:37 UTC
