The Wild Outback Beta

by

An arcade / top-down shooter game set in a fantasy wild-west location that is being invaded by an alien race of mechanical robots and mutant animals. This is a fast-paced bullet hell that's meant to be goofy and replayable!

This is the final test version I'm releasing before it officially comes out in October. Added drop chances to some enemies.
Patched bugs, added enemy AI, flattened level terrain, lots of gameplay changes.

Dialogue, one more minigame

Game Graphics Mechanics
Woah boy, you can see the passion put into it, but it's one clunky and buggy mess (on my first try the boss didn't spawn at level 1 and because of that I was stuck on that level). Not gonna lie I only tried this game because of those paint paintings, and I think that your entire game should be made using that art style. Enemy AI is a non-existent, they get stuck almost every single time, some won't even agro to the player. I highly recommend you checking out nav mesh, and reworking enemies so that they are using it. Remaining enemies counter would be really good. I don't see the point of going inside the buildings when you don't really have to avoid the enemies to survive. I don't know if it's a bug, but there are no sound effects in the game, only music. Leves are unispired and boring, most of the time enemies get stuck on those buildings. Enemies are boring. I don't really feel that moving text, it's more distracting, than good looking.

Minor problems:
-Music on mission 4 is really bad.
-bullets from chicken altilery are colliding with the chickens.

Level Design
Hey. I love your game. I think that this game is impressive as your first game. I finished the first two levels, and I believe that it was amusing. I wish it had some progression system like leveling, skill system, or economy with some in-game coin store. I made a video about how I played your game. I hope you check it out and like it. If you want to delete it, you can ask me anytime.
