Default Woah!

What a blast from the past!! We made this game years ago for a retro remakes competition for Mac and PC. We based it on the old game Berzerk. A unique thing about our game is that we used a single resource, energy capsules which you use to reload your gun, replenish your health, increase your max health or throw as grenades. I don't know how good that idea was in the end, though ^_^. It's cool to see it running on iOS!

I'd ported it to OpenGL & IOS shortly after the 1st gen iPhone first was introduced - it ran at maybe 5 fps. I recently stumbled across the source code and rebuilt for iPhone 6+ and to my pleasant surprise it ran flawlessly at full framerate, even on the later stages with swarms of robots attacking en-masse.
