Robots nicked my stuff!

I’ve always wanted to make an arcade game. And Ludum Dare #20 gave me this opportunity. The theme was “It’s Dangerous to go Alone! Take this!”. I quite liked it, so I decided to join. 33 hours later, I finished my entry, and I’m kinda proud of it :D Hope you people will like it too.

Robots nicked my stuff!

33-hour game for Ludum Dare #20.

Download

Attention! If the games runs slow, you can try turning off the background by pressing U in-game. I strongly suggest you run it on a PC that’s 2.2 Ghz or higher.

Game: robots.zip (4.8mb)

Source: robots_src.zip (5.7mb)

Instructions

The strange thing in the center is a portal, and will drop items from time to time
These items are either weapons or helpers
You shoot weapons
Helpers need to be placed or used with the right mouse button
If a dropped item is not picked up, no more items will spawn until it is
If you loose all your life, you will respawn, but the portal will loose life
The portal also looses life when robots hit it
Its life is displayed at the bottom
Your life and your current weapon and helper will be displayed top-left
When the portal dies, you die

Controls

WASD-move
Left click-fire
Right click-use helper

Troubleshooting

If you have problems getting the game to run I’d suggest installing the newest XNA 3.1 redistributable and making sure you have .net framework 3.5 installed.
