Web: Use cursor keys and left control as fire button
Outpost is a short entry for the Retro Platform Jam #5. The theme was "breezy", which I kinda skipped. Three weeks time to make a game on a retro platform.
You wake up in your bunk and try to find out what's up. It's a short game, no big surprises. Press Up to search/use (the active item), Down to kneel, Space to toggle the active item.
16.10.2022: Uploaded a small bug fix that could lead to a crash if lots of enemies were already active and a new one tried to spawn.
17.10.2022: Another tiny bugfix, lower sprite of big blob was wrong when going left
18.10.2002: Web uses now cursor keys and left control for poor keyboards

it's one of those "old games" stuck in the past. not for me, gaming evolved in the last 40 years and this is one of those that did not. tedious, slow, boring. not for me but some may like it for the "old" factor.
It's like Project Firestart but great work anyway!
Great work, deserves a Gameboy Color port. :)
Nice game, thanks!!!
"Use numpad cursor keys and numpad-insert as fire button" are not available in reduced or laptop keboards ;)
Yeah, I need a different web emu package. I’ll see what I can find. Reduced keyboards should be forbidden by law anyway :D
Very nice game!
