I am currently adding more control over the lasers in Laser Lab. Think of the laser lab as a king of the hill multiplayer map; If the hill had a giant instakill lazer on the top of it! Your position on the pad, directly dictates the angle the lazer is pointing. Oh and if you haven’t played the game, the red ship is sliding along the ground using an advanced thrusting technique called a crab walk.
If you wanted to play hard lander with your friends and dont have an OUYA, your in luck! On July 30th HardLander Alpha will be released to desura for Windows. If you are a youtuber with over 100 subscribers leave a comment and I will send you an advanced copy.
Do you have friends? Do you want to smash them with the butt end of a rocket ship? Then you should check out Hard Lander! The newest update has prettier graphics, and it’s more fun then ever. Here are a few of the multiplayer levels you will find in Hard Lander.
The Graveyard: A large level that lets you stretch your wings and outmaneuver your opponents. If you think this still isn’t enough room to pick up speed, fret not because the level wraps horizontally letting you zip across the wreckage below picking up speed until you find the right opportunity to descend down and clip your enemy.
Has gravity got you down? Then take to the stars and hunker down between some Asteroids. In this level there is no gravity, and asteroids start with random forces making each round a little bit different. This level features vertical AND horizontal wrapping giving you ample opportunity to outwit your witless opponents. If that isn’t tricky enough for you, try charging an asteroid and get it hurling towards your friends noggins.
If sitting on your friends is a little too personal give Laser Lab a try. Here you can control the battle field from afar. Once you have mastered a soft landing, Laser Lab will let you dominate by controlling a set of laser pads near the top of the room. Don’t let up your guard though, a resourceful opponent might just screen wrap on top of your head!
After over a year of working on Hard Lander off and on and quitting my job 6 months ago, I am pleased to announce that Hard lander has been released on the OUYA console! Give it a try, it’s like ballet with missiles!
I really wanted to create a fun, rewarding couch multiplayer game and the OUYA seemed to be the perfect fit for an unknown developer like myself. Playing hard lander is like a ballet, or like riding a unicycle. It isn’t pretty at first, but to those that put in the time, it becomes something beautiful… or at least freakish. Either way I want people who get good at the game to usher gasps of astonishment from their friends and foes alike.Laughs are cheap, man. I’m going for gasps.
Eventually I hope to be able to port the game to wherever people want to play it, but for now I am focusing on updating content and getting feedback on the game on the OUYA platform. I hope that a few of you brave souls will boot up your little boxes and give it a try.
Trophies have been added to Hard Lander! Let’s face it, this game is hard and you deserve to be rewarded for your efforts. Trophies are added for crashing 10 times, and completing the first level. The rest of the rewards are reserved for the skilled and tenacious alike! Give it a try and see if you have the patience and skill to make it to the top!
