CROSSFIRE

Made for the GMTK Game Jam with the theme: "GENRE, but you can't MECHANIC" where you take away the most fundamental mechanic of that genre. 

Crossfire is a Shooter where you can't shoot! Instead, you'll have to run straight into the enemy's crossfire in an attempt to get them to shoot themselves! I know this sounds difficult but don't worry, you can slow down time! Use that to your advantage while in their crossfire.

  • Your avatar moves towards your cursor. You cannot stop moving.
  • Hold left mouse button to activate slow-mo. Letting go deactivates it.
  • Your slow-mo ability only lasts for a short while but recharges when you're not using it, so use it sparingly.
  • If you decide to fully deplete your slow-mo however, 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 for points and try to beat your highscore!

plz make for mac

Hi there, I would love to do so.  However, in order for me to do that, I'll need to have a macbook to create .dmg or .app applications. Unfortunately I don't own a macbook. 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!
