Ludum Dare 24
August 24th-27th 2012 :: Theme: Evolution
Robo[R]Evolution - NateNaterson - Jam Entry
>The age of man has ended. Out in the bleak sits the
heart of the Machine, guarded by the whispering torrents of
sand. Here the war begins anew, a plot hatched by the lords
of this castle. A new breed of death is forged, something
smarter than its predecessors, something efficient. Adaptable.
>The Men know, and they flock to the heart. They come in
their caravans, in their flying machines, from near and
from far. Their fear compels them in vain; they know they
will not be returning to their ravaged homes. The reaper
is something they dare not fight, they've watched him
cradle the world in his arms.
>They too, will be touched by him tonight; they march to
their ends with this truth in their minds. They can not
stop the revolution, and they will be replaced.
>This will be our finest hour. We are the rEvolution.

Since I was running out of time, SOME features are missing (mainly the ending) so I'll be putting out a content update in a few weeks with cool new stuff! Also there's a mini-update with some bugfixes, I highly recommend playing it instead of 1.0!
CHANGELOG for 1.1:
-Fixed Story Advancing being WAY too slow (it advances every 10 waves)
-Fixed Battery Max Health being too high
-Implemented Shot Type upgrades every 10 waves not working
-Increased spread and patterns of later Shot Types
-Fixed default turrets not showing their particle effect
-Fixed Super Fillups giving INSANE amounts of Energy to turrets. (still might not work perfectly)
-Made turrets a bit more balanced by adjusting their energy amounts + firespeed
-Fixed Enemy progression
-Reduced amount of turrets given between waves
-You now start with two turrets again.
-Two regular turrets spawn naturally on the board now, to give the player a headstart
-Fixed crash upon item menu appearing if the player has maxed out stats
-If the player has maxed out stats, a 2nd action item becomes available instead of a stat item
-â€ťFirepowerâ€ť stat now works as it should
-Shots become larger as Firepower increases
-Adjusted enemy health
-Lowered maximum stats
-Added â€śRe-Rollâ€ť to Item Menu. lets you change the items available to you (you start with three)
