The Last Planet by Xaychru04

[raw]
made by Xaychru04 for LD28 (COMPO)
You're a little robot and you live alone on your little planet. Unfortunately, UFOs are coming from everywhere and they are going to invade your planet. But you wont let them land on your planet, because it's yours, and you only get one. (Complete story ingame :) )


If you need some help concerning the controls, or some advices, I put a readme in the archive. This is my fourth LD, I'm proud of it, and it looks like I'm improving my art. The music has been made in the last three hours though, so yeah, it's a little short and rushed.
Anyway, this game was extremely fun to make, I really hope you will enjoy it! :D

Very fun! I love the sound design, beginning text, and the main gameplay xD. Very well done! Visual design is spot on too. It's very tight <3

Interesting game! I failed to do my world justice, but I had fun failing to save it at least. :)

Black holes have consumed every star and every planet. Except for all the stars sparkling in the background :). Love your art style and humor.

If this doesn't win at least one category then someone is joshing with me. Seriously, you excel in this game. Well done on every level!

Love the intro, audio, and the art is fantastic, especially when in motion. C++/SFML -> .exe makes it a little less portable, try to compile with emscripten? Maybe make enemy spawning a bit more predictable. 5/5/4/5/5/5/5/5 Great!

Thanks for your feedback, I really appreciate this!

@KayZ: Haha I know, but I didn't want the background to be empty... Oh wait, you're wrong, the stars in the background look like they were billions of year ago, because the light isn't coming instantly! :)

@cwkx: I never tried emscripten, I don't know if it's compatible with SFML... I'll have a look at it when I got time!

Love it! Spent at least one minute enjoying the fact that I can run into my own bullets by inverting my direction ;)

Wow, this is some really nice visual design! I liked the humorous intro, the gameplay is straightforward and easy to grok, and the audio does an excellent job at supporting your visuals, gameplay and mood. This is a coherent and really enjoyable entry. Good job!

Man, that art style is awesome - like, pixelart, but more fluid or something. Hard to explain, but I loved the look. Gameplay was really fun too :)

Like the game, the different monsters and ships are interesting, graphics was nice and music was nice. Kind of wondering where my universedestroyingpowers went after the intro but who knows.

There doesn't seem to be any drawback from shooting all the time, navigating upside down is quite difficult and sometimes the planetdestroyers fire a bit too quickly. The sound made when a new letter appeared in the intro was quite annoying.

Overall a nice game with some room for improvement.

Excellent game. This game is already production ready. Fiddled a little with the shader to alter it :-D would be nice to include a CRT shader too ;)

Impressive! Graphics and audio are awesome, one of the best entries in the Compo categories for sure. Gameplay is fun, too, and the intro text made me laugh when I reached the end.

Amazing work!! :D

The difficulty curve is spot on, I can tell this was playtested enough. I appreciate the spherical coordinate physics, it just could use some kind of a reminder of which direction is relatively left and right. Props for being able to shoot horizontally, vertically -and- diagonally.

In addition, it looks and sounds alright, too bad you used that terrible font and sfxr blips.

Very fun game. I wish the player had more than one hit to die though. I feel a bit cheated when I die.

Awesome work, loved the especially pixellated pixel effect, the music rocked and the game was tough and addictive. Bonus points for palm trees. :D

It seems I'm the only one that got a blue screen of death while playing this game. It occurred during the intro text. Using Windows 8.1.

After restarting the computer and trying again, the game is all black, but still plays sounds.

Funny game with lovely graphics :)

FUN! Quite addicting too. The art is really awesome! :D
I easily get confused though with controls, if only the robot faces the direction of where it's shooting too, not just when it moves.

But it's a pretty solid polished game. Good job!

Thans everybody for playing my game and giving feedback!

@Jishenaz: Huh... I never tried my game on windows 8 and I won't be able to, so I don't know what causes the problem, sorry... :/

This was great fun! I absolutely loved the intro text, that was really funny .... this game comprises the last two LD's I took part in- Tiny World and You Are The Villain, coincidence? Lovely sounds and graphics, and funky music - compelling!

Couldn't find the key to shoot, so I had to rely on gameplay video to score. I liked it very much, anyway!

@jimmypaulin: Thanks for playing! I didn't took part in the two LDs you mentionned though! :p
@Atridas: There is a readme in the archive, but I think an ingame indication about how to shoot/move would have been better, readme files don't work well on LDs... :/
