Okay i think i get the concept.
You start by being surrounded by darkness. The only visible thing is you, a glowing circle which is controlled with the arrow keys.
In the darkness you will be pursued by two things, one that will kill you when you make direct contact, and another which will flee if you get too close.
To protect yourself against those evil enemies, you have firebombs available. You start with 5 and use one by pressing "B"
You can get more firebombs by pickup "bronze lighting icons" which will spawn randomly in the level
You can also pickup "fire", an item that will spawn in the level and can be used repeatedly by pressing the x button. This item only works for a limited time and is recognised by it's "golden lighting icon"
There are two possible ways to gain points:
- Touch the red trees that are scattered in the darkness.
You "complete" the level, when all trees has been turned black(which will happen when you touch them)
The game will afterward continue, by releasing a new wave of enemies and spawn more trees.
The control feels unresponsive, because of the player speed and the camera which focuses on the player at certain times. A power up in form of a mini-map, that will show you the position of the enemies and trees for a very limited time. More enemies and a shield for defense, against potential stronger or faster enemies. One last thing, when you enter the level, state "Wave 1" or similar to let the player know there's a goal of some sort.
My highscore: 360 :3
