Description

In Player Rush, you play as the final boss in a newly released RAID dungeon. Players from across the globe are partying up take you down and steal your loot. Your objective is to survive and kill as many of them as you can!

History

The theme for this Ludum Dare was 'You Are the Monster'. We’re quite happy with the end result of this game, we had planned to add more features / attacks / objectives but, as always, all of our ideas can’t be done in 72 hours! We also had a new member join in this LD, Ollie, who spent his time doing all the character art & learning how to create sprite sheets for animations etc.

Features

  • Play as a dungeon boss against heroes!
  • Battle against knights, healers & warriors, all set on your destruction.
  • Smash foes into the ground with your powerful smash attack.
  • Listen to two awesome new tracks while playing.
  • All made in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 33.
  • Fill enemies full of holes with your powerful cannon blast!
  • When your hp is low, enter RAGE MODE for a 50% increase in movement & attack speed!
  • While in RAGE MODE, use you inner energy to perform a powerful mega laser attack!
