The game is literally called "1 Life, 1 Chance", and my testers were pissed because it was so frustratingly difficult to get a high score on. the main point of the game is to collect all of the green and red space rocks, but to also avoid all regular rocks and opposing spaceships. if you hit anything, you die and have to restart. graphically, I like that it looks retro like this, and it was inspired by radiant and the pixel jam games. I should have a video for you guys real soon, but enjoy. It will probably get submitted tonight.

yeah, although that one wasn't successful, it did get good reviews. from now on all of my game will kinda pay homage to retro stuff, and this one is gonna be great! the video is being cut and uploaded, so you will see what i mean about it being hard as hell.

Here is the youtube link, but gameplay is way faster than what is projected.

I really tried to make this game incredibly difficult, and you really have to have both luck and a lot of skill to master this. all of my testers felt like they were playing the world hardest game mixed with space ninja!
