Little Green Soldier

Version 1.1

by Nixel
First published on 3rd January, 2017

You are Green, an innocent alien crash-landing on Earth in the future...surrounded by hostile human forces! Can you make it out alive with your unique energy-absorption ability?

This is my first proper project with Construct 2 and general game development, and actually started way back in December 2012 in my high school freshman year. I'm still trying to work on it, so I appreciate any and all feedback! Also -- don't forget to rate the game up there!

I take credit for all sprites and game design, but I credit the following for the music:

    This game requires rapid development and completion so we, your fans, can enjoy it fully and sooner. I'm reaching the shooting head - is that the current end of the game? What else must I do when I get there?

    Add more stages and a score board asap. Absolutely gamey graphics - well done @ Nixel!

    @KoolEcky Shoot back into the mouth! I've been fudging over whether to add more visual cues for the boss fight -- now I think there's every reason to. Thanks for asking! It's useful info for me.

    And fans? Hoo boy, I wasn't expecting this! You know, after 4 years I still love this game, but there's a few roadblocks:
    - This was built on sloppy scripting
    - I'm entering a really hard semester of comp sci
    - I want to focus on learning 3D animation

    What I'll definitely do for now is add a score board (great idea!) and make the boss fight more intuitive. Thanks a ton! It means a lot to me.

    Found an oversight where if you do a second playthrough, the cutscenes and dialogue get skipped -- forgot to reset the event counter, can't believe I missed that. Sorry everyone! I've already fixed this in my own computer, gonna upload it in v1.1 soon along with better clues for the boss fight.

    In the meantime, @Dayzr @erickson400 @MisterAqua @DylanHuber @eonysko5 (I don't know if @ notation works in the Arcade) thank you all!! Happy to see people enjoy playing stuff. Join me in hunting for other games on the Arcade too, I've already found tons of hidden gems and they're awesome!

    Update: Version 1.1 is up, with fixed oversights:
    - No more collision damage with the boss itself
    - Cutscenes should now load properly on subsequent playthroughs
    - Made a really in-your-face clue for the boss, because I'm flat out of ideas

    But frustratingly, I seem to be getting a black screen on my browser now unless I run it in Incognito. The music also seems to be abruptly stopping. I have no idea why, and I'm still trying to figure things out as I go. Just had it work fine on my roommate's laptop, so if anyone else has my problem, do voice out!
