A downloadable game for Windows
My submission for the Game Maker's Toolkit Game Jam!
driftShot is a top-down space shooter with a twist. There is no conventional way to move your ship; the only way is through first shooting an enemy. The faster you defeat enemies, the faster you'll move. How's that for dual-purpose design? You'll need to plan your shots wisely if you wish to avoid drifting into some unwanted obstacles...
Left click: Shoot
Right click / space: Brake (also activates a shield if you aren't shooting)
R key: Reset stage
Q key: Quit to title
M key: Toggle music
Now for a personal message from yours truly:
Yowzer, this past 48 hours has been like a crash course in game design for me, especially seeing as I only first started tinkering with GameMaker Studio a couple of weeks ago. There are a few rough patches, and features I'd have loved to add, but I wanted to stick to the Jam philosophy, so hopefully you'll enjoy what I cooked up. Thanks everyone, now I'm going to bed.
Download and extract the zip, then run the exe. If it doesn't work, then... that's incredibly annoying.
