Alien Raid

“Evil aliens built a base on the moon. Nice humans must now destroy it.
You are this task force composed of constructions, vehicles and astronauts to clean the moon from these green invaders”

Alien Raid was created in one weekend for the LudumDare #26 game programming competition, held in April 2013 with the theme “Minimalism”.

Ludum Dare is an one weekend game development event/competition, where developers from around the world create games based on a theme suggested by the community.

Alien Raid is a minimalist 2D real time strategy. The player must extract minerals from the moon surface with Ore Miners, provide the base with Living Domes and Hydroponic Farms for astronauts, build an army in the Factories using Solar Panels as energy providers. The astronauts can enter buildings to improve / speed up their functionalities but they are armed to fight too.

The aliens are aware of human presence and send waves of attack from time to time.

How to play

You control one unit/construction at a time, change the selected one by clicking over it with right mouse button.
Basic controls are arrow keys (or WASD keys) and mouse buttons.
When a construction is selected, click with left mouse button over an astronaut to garrison him inside. They improve this construction efficiency while inside and get cover from attacks. Click again to return him to moon surface.
