A 48h shooter I made for Ludum Dare 39 gamejam! The theme was “Running out of power”. Once again, this game is actually the second one I made during a single gamejam weekend. I cancelled the first one because it wasn’t fun at all, so I decided to switch to a shooter with a fast paced gameplay like old-school ones :)

How to play

Distribute your generator power to your ship sub-systems.

  • max out the Shield to regen it when you get hit,
  • max out Gun to increase damage in front of you,
  • max out Missiles to throw dozens of homing missiles around you!

    I did indeed really like it! A fun take on the classic vertical shmup: distributing power feels great! It continues to astound what you manage to create in such a short amount of time. Terrific work!
