You are a gladiator that faces waves of enemies, your only way to survive is to pick up items that appear randomly on the ground to beat them up.

Item list : 
  • Bow (shoot on a single enemy at a time) 
  •  Heart (restore 1 hp)  
  • SuperBow (shoots on all enemies) 
  • SpeedBoot (increase your move speed)
  • Mushroom (give you hallucination)
  • Turret (build a turret that shoots on enemies)




Enjoy !

Made in 48 hours for the Mini Jam 7 - Greek Mythology - , the limitations were 

Use 4 colors (And only 4 colors).


Issues I encounter :

  • I had big issues with the game performance, I had to limit the number of enemies to 4.
  • I lost all my sfx 10 hours before the deadline and forgot to make a backup...
  • I really need to train on making music.
  • This is the first time I'm making a camera that follows the player and I still haven't figured out how to display text in the right position with the camera moving, the score screen has positions bugs.

What I learned :

  • Making a "smooth" and "smart" camera
  • Better screenshaking
  • More endurance
  • Do more backups

    This is not a bug but a feature, I really like the score in the middle of the field :)
