Since this month is leap hour month, a new game development challenge surfaced. The basic idea is to make a game in 0 hours (you know…if you turn the clock back, you’re one hour in the past, so you can actually waste an hour without wasting it). I wanted to try a game idea for some time now, so here’s my entry for


1 hour and 30 minutes game for 0-hour game.

The idea behind the game is that you have a ship (crudely represented by a square) in which you fly around the city using your mouse. Some of the towers in the city are red and will fire at you. You can’t shoot back, but if you stand close to a white tower long enough, it’ll turn green and shoot at the nearest red tower.


Move around – mouse
