Freeware Archive: You’re In Space And Everyone Wants You Dead

You’re In Space And Everyone Wants You Dead is a game that’s as self-descriptive as it gets: you, the character behind the arm on the screen, or as I prefer to imagine it, a floating arm in space, have to survive. Period. With similar premise and gameplay to Devil Daggers [Review], it’s not just the fact that it’s free that makes this game worth taking a look at (heck, it’s free – just play it already).

Developed for the GBJam5, a gameboy themed jam from which you can expect other games to be featured on our Freeware Archive, You’re In Space And Everyone Wants You Dead – which I’ll refer to as YISAEWYD from now on – is a game about surviving against increasingly diminished odds. Hordes of one-eyed, spherical enemies chase you relentlessly and the only way to thin their numbers is by picking something up, like a bomb or even one of them, and tossing it against them.

As you can see, that’s not the only novel mechanic here: the game has a gravity mechanism that allows you to jump from planet to planet and change the surface you’re walking on. I haven’t reached a score as impressive as mine on Devil Daggers (it’s impressive to me, alright?), but give me some time and practice and I just might.
