A downloadable game for Windows

Overview

Star Breaker is my entry into the Search For A Star competition for 2017. You control a space ship and the goal is to destroy as many comets as possible in the time limit. Avoid taking damage, collect the minerals that are dropped for score and see if you can earn a spot on the online leaderboard.

Gameplay

There are 2 gamemodes in Start Breaker: Tutorial, and the main 'Arcade' mode.

In the Tutorial level you will learn how to fly the space ship by completing a course as fast as possible. If you hit all 88 rings your score will be submit to the online leaderboard. How fast can you complete the course?

In the main Arcade mode you have a set time in which to cause as much destruction as you can. When destroyed comets will drop one of three minerals:

  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Bronze

These are worth different amound of points each so shoot as many as you can, head for the most valuable minerals first, and see how much score you can rack up in the time limit!

Watch those comets though! They're attracted through gravity and when they collide they combine. Big clusters can get stuck in orbit and offer a high risk/high reward situation:

Destroy the cluster and you're in the big score. Get hit by the cluster and it's game over!
