Game Instructions

Use WSAD to move your ship around the maze field.
W - move forward
S - brake
A - rotate left
D - rotate right

Use the " < ", " > ", and " ? " keys to fire your weapons.
< - primary guns
> - charge shot
? - anti-asteroid missile

Primary guns are upgraded by collecting the colored pellets dropped by enemies (asteroids do not leave power-ups).
Red - bullet caliber
Blue - fire rate
Green - spread shot
[Pay attention to the power-up meters on the HUD! If you wait too long, the meters will deplete and your weapons will go down a level! There are three levels for each power-up.]

The Charge Shot will automatically fill up in power. Once it gets past the red bar, it will begin flashing and is ready for use. Let it fill to full power to release it and it will bypass even the walls to devastate every enemy in its path!

The anti-asteroid missiles will take some time to reload, but when ready, the missile icon on the HUD will become fully visible.

Gradient Run [beta]

Version 1.0

by Rhindon
First published on 28th April, 2015

Seven games become one: Gradient Run! #construct2coinop
Inspired by 6 classic coin-op arcade games from the 80s and 90s and one modern console game, Gradient Run combines features from each game and fuses it into a never-ending battle of survival. Upgradeable primary firepower, a self-charging wave shot, and asteroid-busting missiles are your arsenal to stay alive! Battle enemies (and asteroids!) in a maze-like environment through an endless mix of three types of waves: Blitz, Heat, and Swarm!

Blitz: Destroy all four crystals while hordes of enemies flood from the bases.
Heat: Endure the constant influx of enemies for a fixed amount of time.
Swarm: A destroy a certain number of enemies to survive and move on.
