2 Colors Game Jam: Alien Arrow Attack

“Alien Arrow Attack” by Chris Holtshouser.

“[A fast-paced] arcade game where players must quickly plan and predict the movement of enemies to defeat them with their arrow.”

In “Alien Arrow Attack”, you must usually eliminate all enemies per level by adjusting the arrow’s path to your opponent’s location. That sounds pretty simple at first, but as the game progresses, many more of the alien creatures will emerge, putting you under serious time pressure. That can also be an advantage, though: If you kill more than two monsters with one shot, you get a small time bonus.

But the best thing is the relatively varied level design: Sometimes the aliens just roam the area, while in other levels, you have to hit as many targets as possible with just one shot, and others again are all about the protection of a base from hostile attacks. All in all, “Alien Arrow Attack” is a smoothly designed arcade game with some great gameplay ideas. >>PLAY
