3 truths and a maybe about Self Destruct:
 - It's a bullet hell shooter!
 - It features random enemy patterns.
 - It was made in one day for this contest!
 - As a result, it might suck just a little... :D

I hope people like it - goodnight everyone :D

[edit] Video up!

Awesome mechanics and graphics. It strikes a very nice balance between offense and defense without being overly complicated. I only got to wave 46 before my horrible shmup skills caught up with me. Yeah... I'm never going to come close to beating this. By the way, the high scores are broken. They only save the last scores, and even those disappear when you quit.

This game is pretty fun!  It's a very impressive effort for one day.  I'm not that adept at shooters, but this feels very solid.  Really nice surprise, guys!

Thanks Smiley I'm going to try and make a small update later on today. Lot of things were kinda rushed at the last minute.

Brilliant little game. The difficulty level seems to jump quite suddenly around wave 40.
I'd love to see a video of wave 400

Man. If you wrote the entire game in a day, I'd be surprised there any bits which weren't rushed at the last minute. Tongue

that's fun! very energetic and retro in a good way.
a bit too diffucult and fast for me though. 400 is simply self destruct :D

and yes, i'm truly impressed that you've made this in only one day... great job!

Thank you lots for quertz-support. Good game. Nothing special though. But made in one day, so you probably will get that last release award

Seriously though, Terry, did YOU ever beat this? It's insanely hard, bullets and enemies fly around too fast for my eyes to make sense of their patterns. It's just too hectic. You might wanna balance this a bit more. I wanna see Anny's other ships! Kiss

Still pretty awesome though.

I did beat it quite a lot as I was putting it together, but honestly I'm having trouble getting past wave 100 in the contest build... basically at the last minute I worried that it might be too easy, and tweaked a few things. I think I've misjudged it a bit Tongue

Don't worry, I'm going to update it later on tonight. It should be a much more balanced game once I'm finished! (I've already got the online highscore tables more or less working!)

I like the difficulty. Could you keep it as a hard mode? Smiley
