This Top-Down Shooter Engine is everything that you need in order to start creating a fast and fun, 2D shooter game. This demo includes a fully functional player object, with a focus on "game feel". The input/physics were coded in a particular way in order to mimic fast-paced popular, shooters like Nuclear Throne and Hotline Miami.
The Top-Down Shooter Engine is meant to be used as a quick kick-start when creating 2D top-down games. I will add features and more weapons, enemies, and features as I can! Price may vary as the size of the engine increases, so get it while it's cheap!
Makes use of particle trail scripts found here: https://marketplace.yoyogames.com/assets/212/draw-trail
You can now grab, drop, and hurl weapon pickups! Use this to swap weapons quickly on-the-go! Enemies are damaged by thrown weapons!

Simple code and feels very nice!
exciting topdown shooter engine!!
This is a top-down shooter game engine that was very good .
We learn are making exciting games.
Great combat. It would be a perfect engine if it included a melee weapon as well. Easy to customize and fun as is.
Something I didn't like is how the main player object moves.
You don't notice it because he's white, but he only turns left or right. So he's not really setup like a top down shooter player. He behaves like a sidescroller player by only turning left and right.
So when you just drop an image on top of the player image, to replace the art, it won't actually rotate in the direction you are looking!
So I guess having to tool around and change that is fine, but that takes away from what this was suppose to be to me.
Also, it would be good to have some mobile support, and I noticed the drops/pickups are unclear. Something is not working there.
Anyways, maybe like they mentioned in the description, when they add all those extra features and enemies, it will shape up to be a better product.
The good stuff is that it is indeed smooth and has some basics ready to go! Not bad at all.
Feels nice and fluid.
Great Fun TDS Engine It is like Vlambeers Nuclear Throne
this shooter engine is lots of fun! well commented and easy to modify, just needs a life bar and ammo counter but that i can add myself
