OverHeat is a top-down side scroller. With a laser that increases in damage as it gets hotter, can you balance your firepower and reach a high enough velocity to catch up with the alien mothership? Features include: - Three unlockable ships with different special abilities - Modular powerups that interact with each other - OverHeat laser blaster - the hotter your weapon, the more damage you'll do but if you overheat, you'll need to wait for it to cool down - Literally no context for your actions - Score-modifying challenge modes that unlock on completion - A secret cheat button. Warning: Pressing the secret cheat button might break the game. I am not responsible for this. OverHeat is free to download, but if you really enjoyed it and wish to make a donation to support further development of this and other projects, I'd be incredibly grateful! No obligation, of course. This is my first start-to-finish game project. I'd love to know what you think!
