Story

You are inside the Large Hadron Collider.

REMEMBER: Opposites Attract. Don't explode.



Controls

  • WASD to move
  • Left click to shoot
  • Right click to reverse polarity

Watch the bar at the top of the screen. Shooting changes your polarity. If polarity reaches 100%, you explode.



Theme

Opposites Attract: Our idea for Xander Jam was magnets. We didn't have an artist and none of us can draw so we used simple shapes.

Switch: Partway into development, we noticed GeoJam 2021 starting and ending near the same time as Xander Jam, and our game fitting both themes. And both hosts were ok with submitting to both jams.

Fun game, it feels really good to play. I enjoyed the concept.

This is fun. You can switch between attack and defense mode with a mouse click. it took a moment to figure out an optimal stategy (shooting an attracting bullet and immediatly switching back into repell mode).
it felt all easy when I figured it out, however swiftly stepped up in difficulty, as multiple different enemies went on screen and defending against red could not defend you against blue.
A nice way to train your reaction time.
