This is a really fun game~ Surprisingly difficult, too! The enemies REALLY know where to aim.... I like how you're basically forced to kill enemies to keep the heat of you and get points, even though transforming to them is less than ideal... Yellow is so underpowered... Great design, great aesthetics, well done!
CtrlX Bullet Hell
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
This game was made for the Game Makers Toolkit Game Jam (2017)
A bullet hell game where you literally become your enemy. Upon killing an enemy you teleport to their position and gain their abilities. Be careful with the order you kill enemies in; different enemies are more effective in different circumstances, you don't want to be caught out.
How does your submission match the theme?
The game is built around the idea that shooting an enemy not only scores points and removes them but also makes the player 'become' that enemy; teleporting to its position and gaining its weapon.
In addition to removing the enemy and building points, shooting enemies serves a multitude of other puposes;
Teleports the player; helping the player to avoid projectiles (any nearby projectiles are detroyed).
Changes the players weapon; giving importance to the order in which enemies are killed.
Builds combo; forcing the player to act agressively.
