CROSSFIRE

Made for the GMTK Game Jam 2018 with the theme: "GENRE, without MECHANIC" where you take away the most fundamental mechanic of that genre. 

Crossfire is a Shooter where you can't shoot. Destroy your enemies by staying in their crossfire.

  • Your avatar moves towards your cursor. You cannot stop moving.
  • Hold left mouse button to activate slow-mo. 
  • Your slow-mo only lasts for a short while and recharges rapidly when you're not using it.
  • If slowmo is fully depleted, it goes on cooldown mode and you can't use it again until it's fully recharged.
  • Enemies won't shoot if you're close to them, so don't be afraid to dive straight into a group of them!
  • Dead enemies drop little glowing orbs. Collect them to regenerate your shield!
  • Enemies can't kill you by touching you, only their bullets can.

Hey RavenBane, thank you, glad you enjoyed Crossfire! I'm happy to announce that Crossfire is coming to Steam 2020.

Can you please send me a link to the sound effect of the enemy dying? I want to use it for my own game, but I can't find it

Hi there, I would love to do so.  However, in order for me to do that, I'll need to have a device running macOS to create .dmg or .app applications. Unfortunately I don't own such a device. Although I could recommend that you download an app that allows you to run .exe programs on your mac such as  Wine Bottler.

Follow these steps:

1. Head over to the link here and download the latest version of Wine Bottler. Next, wait for the advertising screen to disappear.

(Note: It is not recommended that you download the development version as it may cause issues.)

2. Double click on the Wine Bottler setup to begin the installation.

3. Locate the EXE file you want to use and double-click on it. Select open with “Wine.”

4. Make sure that the “Run Directly In” option is marked

5. Click the “Go” button located in the lower-right corner

By the way, let me know if it worked!

The concept is almost there! Right now the most survivable playstyle, like ZipCreator said, is to run around the outside. There isn't a lot of incentive to stic in the middle of all of them and the movement doesn't quite allow for enough reaction time to always dodge bullets reliably, not bad at all though!

Thank you very much for your constructive feedback! Your suggestions were very helpful in identifying how to improve the player's survival and the overall gameplay. All of these suggestions will likely be implemented and I'll release an update once the jam submission period was over. Thank you again for playing :D

The only problem with the game is that you can go in a circle around the map and easily rack up a lot of points.

Other than that, pretty fun game!

I disagree a bit there, you can't really score lots of points by moving in a circle. Maybe Seet fixed that issue where you could do it. It's 2022 so maybe he fixed it.

so if you can't use this strategy, you're forced  to go in the center
