Rocket Man Stan - JoeCool17 - Jam Entry
So, fine gentlemen, gentlewomen, and gentlealiens, I present to you Rocket Man Stan!
Set in the early 70s, follow our intrepid hero, Stan, as he fights his way off of a Soviet-invaded moon after a covert USAF mission goes awry on the dark side of the moon! Get him to safety by destroying all the Soviet robots Goomba-style so that he can radio for help!
Some back story:
This was GOING to be an LD48 entry, but due to a last minute(literally) happening coming up, I was not able to submit, so I took the extra day and polished it up some. Later I'll make this into a full-blown game, for Eggplant Animation(eggplantanimation.com). This is my second LD, first one alone, and I think I did pretty well, considering what I learned over the course of 48 hours and what I couldn't do just last summer. Uses Flash and Flixel, with FlashDevelop and DAME to help. I plan to release the source sometime in the next month.
Left/Right to move, Space to jump. Kill those robots, 9 in all, by jumping on top of them ("goomba-style"). The health bar is in the upper-left corner, with the number of lives left next to it.
