Gentrieve 2 is a "Metroid"-style 3D action game featuring completely random & customizable worlds. The year is 3080. Mass Generators are creating everything, everywhere. However, thieves often steal Mass Generators in hopes of creating robot armies & fortresses. Thieves are terrible programmers, though, and their creations become uncontrollably hostile & fortresses wildly convoluted. It is your job to clear out these fortresses & return the faulty Mass Generators. Be warned, when the Mass Generator is taken offline, the fortress will soon implode!

After some useful feedback on the forums, Gentrieve 2 got some important balancing tweaks. Now you should be able to play large challenging random & customizable worlds that are not too hard, but also not too easy!

Hey all,

This is primarily a balancing update based on forum feedback. Changes in v1.5 should provide a more balanced and fun experience as the game progresses. Enemies will generally have less health later in the game & be vulnerable to more weapons. I’ve also made the “Advanced Vision” upgrade appear later in the game, but be easier to find — this should make it easier to find secret rooms that have important health boosts (and more). Finally, when you are low on health, I made enemies always drop needed items (like more health).

Complete changes:

  1. Health will now drop instead of nothing when player is <50% health
  2. Enemy weapon immunity has been tweaked & made more balanced
  3. Enemy health will increase slower as game difficulty increases
  4. Fixed “Shields” item description text
  5. “Advanced Vision” will now be placed later in the game, but more easily discovered
