How not to Lose

Avoid the enemy squares!

What I didn’t do/Possible Improvements

No powerups. I initially intended to have Geometry Wars style weapon powerups, but in the end the default weapon felt powerful enough, and I didn’t want to power-down the default just for the sake of then building it back up!

    Title: Looking at the game screenshot I figured that the game background looks like the screen in 80s/90s TV when there was no program. Had to look up Wikipedia to get the technical name for such screens as “Test Card”. “Card of Testing” title made sense after that.

    Gameplay: After many weeks of level based games with 4 lives to get through the game, this week’s game is a single screen, one life game. Grid based 4 way non stop movement needs a little time to getting used to. Firing only in the direction of the movement makes the game play interesting. The difficulty settings is well managed with tougher enemies getting spawned at different times in easy/normal/hard levels.

    Scoring: I was just shooting remaining in small patch and getting 5 points for each enemy. By releasing the greenish yellow diamonds with 10 points score after each kill, the game makes the player take risk and move around to collect them. This balances the game well.

    Music: Background score starting with a single tone and moving to a techno beat is pretty good. Found the sound effects on collecting the 10 points a bit muffled. There are 2 background scores in the sfx folder but I don’t think I heard “Breaded.ogg” in the game.

    Overall a totally unique game well executed.
