They seem innocent enough, but once they have picked up on your presence they will relentlessly chase you down!

There is also a new weapon, the laser rifle (the next gifs use the flamethrower as a placeholder, but it should look something like this:)

We’re trying really hard to give each weapon specifities and different usages (the laser tommygun is average in everything, the missiles are powerful but inaccurate and clumsy in enclosed spaces, the flamethrower deals lasting damage but has a short range and can easily … backfire ^^, etc…).

The laser rifle is a very powerful weapon, but it’s also quite slow, so you better line up those shots carefully:

On the upside it can pierce through several conveniently aligned targets, such as crates…

That's it for now :) As usual if you have any questions about the gameplay, the art, the engine, or anything really, please don't hesitate to ask away!

Cheers!

Same here! Ever since laying my eyes on that phone-booth in Final Fight (never mind the car bonus stage...) I have always dreamed of making a game where I could break everything ^^
