Descend

Version 1.0.0.0

by kirknetic
First published on 10th September, 2015

My entry to the Underground Jam held by Scirra.

Descend a very deep but perilous cavern. All you have against the dangers is a rifle to defend yourself with.

This is my first game released here on Scirra Arcade. Hope you enjoyed it! I'm open to all feedback so please let me know how I did.

    I see only a black screen with the top health bar and depth counter and rifle aim + sound, but I don't see the character at all.

    Thanks for the comment. The black dark screen was somewhat intentional as you get really far down. I was planning to add a flashlight but couldn't figure out how to get it to look the way I wanted in time to submit for the competition. The way it works now is you get a flash of light every time you fire your weapon, and that provides you a split second of vision. But as it turns out it doesn't work very well, I might update it soon.

    I see what you were going for, I like the idea, like you were thinking, I'd add a flashlight, maybe it can run out of batteries and you have to shoot upgrades, or maybe shoot lanterns on the way down to light them up for a bit, also maybe a bat kill count :) pretty cool keep at it! I'd add all kinds of upgrades to keep it interesting on the long way down.

    Thanks for the wonderful feedback. :)

    Looking back on this I can see that it is lacking a lot gameplay wise. Which with your suggestions would definitely make it better. Hope to update this one soon.

    Thanks for checking it out! :)

    Yeah I really should look into why my leaderboards are not working. And I think I should add a live bat kill counter.
