Wasted is an arcade-based topdown shooter playing in the (nearby) future. You play as a mech that has to survive wave after wave of enemies. You can buy weapons and well, find out strategies to kill those annoying enemies.

Features for this demo:

Triple wielding.
One complete world.
9 different weapons.
Powerups at certain points.
A nice shop system.
One challenge.
Great backgrounds created by jmgandalf.
Joystick support thanks to Feared Machina.

Press the shop terminal in the beginning to get game information and find out how to kill enemies without weapons.

People about wasted:

"Damn--this game is amazing. I love the effects and the music." - xlilwill5x
"Ok that was pure awesome, You win my "Teh P3n4ge" award. " - FearedMachina
"An instant epic." & "Sheer Brilliance. " - Yibbon
"Perfect." - Pokefab

etc. ;)

Well, enjoy!

Awesome. ^_^
I'm addicted to it now. =P
More missions will be great. Are you planning to make a better shop interface later? It'd be pretty cool if you could buy lots of weapons, and equip them between each wave, depending on what you think you'll need. Like, so that when I buy something for my left arm, it goes into my inventory, and I can equip what weapon I want between waves.

The graphics and effects were awesome as well. The explosions and stuff in particular.
The AI for the robots was decent too. (How they swarm towards you, but do it crimson land style)

Can't wait for more.

That was pretty fun! I liked the graphics a lot. My only complaint would be the movement, because it isn' smooth. Otherwise, keep up the good work! (oh yeah, great AI)

How the hell are you meant to complete wave 2?!

Awesome game otherwise.

I beat wave 2 with an auto-chaingun on the top. My favorite weapon, 'cause I can afford it after the first wave, and it doesn't require me to do any aiming. <3
If you get in close to those drone things, and hold down the middle button, they'll explode in a couple seconds.
melee-master commented April 24, 2006 at 9:39 PM
I have a middle button, but it's my scroll wheel, and I have it set so that whatever window is focused disappears. >_>

=O You ripped off RA.


Thanks for all the comments everyone!

In screenshot 2, I see there are enemies, as well as a shop thingy. Is that in this demo? Because the shop thing explodes when you start a wave, and the only challenge is the splatter one.

Also, what does the square/triangle thing over the money thingy mean?
JW commented April 26, 2006 at 2:05 PM
The 2nd screenshot was made in my special debug mode, and about that square triangle thingey, it's a weird health-display, you should only watch it when it's a red triangle, which means you can run out of your mech when you press space... (Still not of any use, but it's funny :P)
firestormx commented April 26, 2006 at 6:11 PM
Ah, I see.
You should make a "survival" challenege with the sop always there in the next demo. It shouldn't be too hard I don't think. It'd add a lot more replay value, since I've beaten campain mode a number of times already. =P

Addicting!! This game is great! I like the music, graphics, and most importantly the gameplay!
Keep it up!
One advice though. A second of emptyness between waves is prefered.

Can't wait to see the full version =D

This is one of my favourite GM games, and influenced me a fair bit with the graphical style of the latest Danse Machina build. Keep it up!
JW commented May 24, 2006 at 5:53 AM
Back on the track, today I'm planning on really starting world 2. :)

I don't like how you did the menu thing. Also it was to hard... and I couldn't see the crossheirs.
