An 80's-style combination of a puzzle game and a shooter.
How to Play
- Press O to insert a coin
- Press P to pause
- Use WASD to move
- Hold Z to advance enemies manually
- Press Space to play (and to fire)
- Match same-colored blocks in lines of 3 or more horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
- Grab blocks by moving downwards into them, or by catching them. Release them with the fire button.
- You can hold up to 3 blocks; trying to catch a 4th will kill you.
- The block grid fills a little bit whenever you die.
- Push blocks sideways by moving into them.
Chromavaders is far from done. But it is in a good enough state for people to play it and give useful feedback. These items are on the burner, in no particular order:
- An attract mode that properly features gameplay and the tutorial
- Online high scores
- More game modes, for both one player and two
- Improve the AI
- Secure licenses for game console dev kits
