This game was suppossed to be a gamejam project, but i didn't have enough time to finish it before the gamejam ends so I'm making it as my own game.
Similar to defender, your objective is saving people (or ally robots) from enemies to stop the planet destruction.
You are a transforming jet. when you are a jet, you can thrust very fast but going up and down is quite slow. When you are a robot, your thrust speed gets slower, but going up and down gets much faster and your primary weapon become an automatic laser rifle.
Instead of smartbombs, you have homing missiles in this game. Compared to smartbomb it can't instantly destroy all enemies in the screen, but you can use it more efficiently.
Using smartbomb against an single enemy is a big waste, but with homing missiles you can just launch one to get the enemy.
There's also a Hyperspace to eacape from dangerous situations, But it's different compared to the one from defender.
The chance of dying for using Hyperspace is moderated to make it actually useful rather than just a gamble.
If you use it for the first time, You won't be killed. But The chance of dying will be increased as you use it more and more.
Also, The destination of hyperspace is not totally random. instead, you jumps half length of the map. This can be used to avoid enemies who are chasing you or save the humanoids much quicker. also, saving humanoids resets the chance of dying, so you can use the safe hyperspace again if you captured them.
There will be two kinds of waves. 1~4 waves are defending wave, and in the fifth wave you will leave the planet and fight with large amounts of enemies in space.
After the Fifth wave, you will warp to another planet and start defending again.
My objective is making a Defender clone with some good elements of Stargate(Defender 2).
Stargate is technically an superior game to Defender, But I never liked it. Too many busy things happen in regular waves and it's just frustrating. But i liked some new features like Humanoid capturing bonus combo, Warp, and Space battle waves and wanted to mix them in defender.
