Yes, it's the alpha of the alpha.
edit: oh, no, the game is gauntlet style, fighting on a stage until the waves end. I thought you were talking about the game's state.
There's mushrooms that drop bombs and I am unsure if I'm supposed to be able to land on them or not, and there's the wolf which seems like I'm supposed to drop a bomb at it and make the wolf explodo.
Both can be killed with bombs, exploding into magical healing glitched textures. I tried to include alternate ways of killing them: the wolf can be baited into jumping off a cliff (high top speed, terrible acceleration), and you can stomp the mushroom into crashing in his own bombs. That's not normal ways of killing them though.
Is this intended to be PvP at any point?
I don't think PvP would be very enjoyable at the moment.
The end goal would be like this:
In the far future of the distant post-apocalyptic time, an evil Artifact was shattered, spawning beasts and abominations most foul (dogs and mushroom thingies at the moment)
. A fragment found its way to a city. Its power was harnessed, allowing the city to survive against the monstrous hordes of foes and their warring neighbors. However, humans empowered by the crystal systematically go bonkers; hence a group of battle robots was created, powered by dark, reality-warping energies. The peculiar fragment the city holds allows the blessed wielder to manifest objects. (spawn bombs)
You are Shaz, one of those tainted robots. Your role is to stand on the city's roofs (the level you fight on)
, and square against monsters drawn to your power(increasingly difficult waves of enemies)
. Something unexpected is happening, however: their shattered fragments are drawn to you, repairing your wounds and increasing your power. (healing/upgrade system)
. If I'm really, really motivated, that means wave bosses unlocking more powers (different fragments).
