Game Information
Short Introduction: 
A classic top-down scrolling shooter -- with a twist!
Mac OS X+
Linux / Unix
Platform note: 
Java and slick2d.
Brief Play Description: 

Here you are in your shiny new plane, flying along peacefully as the beautiful countryside unrolls itself under you. Sure, there's the odd turret shooting at you, but of course you know how to deal with those!

Soon enough, you make it to the distant big city. Looks like your mission was successful. But what's that? You get to do it all over again! And -- oh no, it can't be true, can it? A shadow of your own past self joins you! Will past you join present you to defeat the turrets all the better? Or does past you have something more sinister in mind? And what will happen when you finally make it to the city again?

This game came 2nd place in the public site favourite voting at the Waikato University GGJ site.

Installation Notes: 

The game requires that an Oracle Java runtime environment version 7 is installed.

Rename the release directory to a name that you like and copy it to a destination where it makes sense.

Run the game executable.

The Global Game Jam distributable only supports Microsoft Windows; OS X and Linux versions will probably be added after the submission deadline.

Version 1.1 updates:

Version 1.1 includes the libraries for linux, linux_64, OS X and windows 32-bit.

This version also require a jdk greater than 1.6.0 instead of 1.7.0.

All of the textures have also been converted to not use any interlacing since this was found to have issues with openjdk 1.6 running on 64-bit linux.

The background texture was also updated so that there isn't a jump when the level rotates.
