A rather bare-bones game, but the art is pretty nice! The essence pickups that follow you do make the game more forgiving, although there's very little challenge after a while. There's very little point in using the health to block enemies, not to mention very difficult. Still, some neat ideas in here.
A downloadable game for Windows
made in 48 hours for the GMTK Jam
W,A,S,D for movement
left mouse click for shooting,
space bar to pause the game, this also serves as a teleport ingame, use with ur creation
step over the essence packs to get hp/ammostep over the essence packs to get hp/ammo
also because of the time limit i could not add a menu, and scoreboard
lol enjoy bane!
the dual purpose was the health is also your ammo, the pause can be used to create a grace period to collect health.
attacks are generated on random numbers so don't get used to killing enemies in 3 hits, also a bullet could cost 100 essence/hp but only do 1 damage to enemies, and vice versa.
I didn't have enough time to finish the animations of the sprites, (also made by me)
the music was created by me in http://www.beepbox.co/#5s0kbl00e03t7m0a7g0fj7i0r1w1111f0000d1111c0000h0000v0000o...
