A downloadable game

OverHeat is a top-down side scroller. With a laser that increases in damage as it gets hotter, can you balance your firepower and reach a high enough velocity to catch up with the alien mothership?

Features include:

- Three unlockable ships with different special abilities

- Modular powerups that interact with each other

- OverHeat laser blaster - the hotter your weapon, the more damage you'll do - but if you overheat, you'll need to wait for it to cool down

- Literally no context for your actions

- Score-modifying challenge modes that unlock on completion

- A secret cheat button. Warning: Pressing the secret cheat button might break the game. I am not responsible for this.

OverHeat is free to download, but if you really enjoyed it and wish to make a donation to support further development of this and other projects, I'd be incredibly grateful! No obligation, of course.

This is my first start-to-finish game project. I'd love to know what you think! Comments are welcome here, on Twitter (@BJRose) or on my personal blog (http://bjrose.wordpress.com/). 

Whatever you think, thanks so much for checking out the project!

Interesting game and concept, are you planning further development?


Possibly, it wouldn't be for a while unfortunately.

Thanks for your comments!
