A downloadable game for Windows

LUDUM DARE 41


A lil' last-minute game I started making during Ludum Dare 41, where the theme was "Combine 2 Incompatible Genres".

GAMEPLAY

  • Score points by timing your note presses  with 'Z' ' X' and  'C' just right, and defeating enemies.
  • Move up and down with the arrow keys to avoid enemy projectiles.
  • Press any of the three keys when the pink heart-shaped notes approach the center to regain health.
  • Missing notes is OK, but having accuracy and building your streak will give your bullets more power!



It started out as a sort of dungeon-crawler game, as seen in this WIP gif

Buuuuuuut, unfortunately, things happened, and I had to stop my jamming midway through the weekend. Eventually I decided to go back and spent a few hours closing off the game with what I had. To make up for the many hours I lost, I cut out the movement, different rooms, etc. and made a simple shooter.

So it's a rhythm game mixed with simple shooter elements.

Here's the song I made for it:
