Your life is slipping away. Siphon the horde to keep yourself alive.

A top-down shooter where you’re constantly losing health. You need to siphon it back from enemies, but doing so leaves you vulnerable. Use a mix of the rail gun and rocket launcher to defend yourself and blast your way to the end.

Created in under 48 hours for Ludum Dare 46 where the theme was "keep it alive."

Controls:

  • WASD to move
  • LMB for rail gun
  • RMB for rockets
  • Hold E to siphon an enemy (when in range)
  • Left shift to dash

There’s also a developer console you can play (press the tilde/backtick key ~/`). Type “level N” to go to a particular level, and “nocooldowns” to turn off ability cooldowns (warning: this will trigger the ability every frame, which could tank low-end PCs).
