A little game I made while taking break from a project I’m working on to take a break from my main project. Each player controls a robot and tries to mash the other player into spikes. Repeat. Originally meant to be a rip-off of Get On Top, I eventually ended up with something a bit different, but the basic idea remains. Eventually I’d like to have an android version, because this type of game is really meant to be played while drinking beer, and who wants to drag their computer to a pub, right?
The controls are simple - arrow keys for the pink player and W, A, D for the teal one. There is no “down” key, but pressing left+right does the trick. Overal the controls are meant to be somewhat difficult - the goal is to survive longer than the other guy, not to fly around the arena gracefully.
There’s a whole bunch of settings in the main menu. I will include some interesting presets later (as well as the option to save your own). For now I’m not competely sure what kind of settings work the best, so please experiment, and if you come up with something fun, please let me know.
One idea is to set high gravity, put spikes on the walls and a normal wall on the floor and join the robots with a very short chain.
There are only three powerups and two curses so far, I’ll be adding more in the future. Let me know if you think of interesting ones to add.
I didn’t have a chance to test it with other people much yet, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
