Hyper Light Knight
A downloadable game for Windows
Cyberpunk top down shooter, but instead of shooting guns you reflect enemy bullets back at them.
How to play
There are two colors of bullets: ORANGE and BLUE. You can ONLY reflect ORANGE bullets, but you can also invert the world color to turn blue bullets into orange.
You can also absorb bullets to release a powerful attack afterwards.
This game was made in less than two days during local offline gamejam at Indiecator creative space. There were a couple of additions and balance adjustments afterwards, so technically it's a postjam version.
- WASD + Mouse - Movement and aim
- Left Mouse Button - Toggle bullet absorption and laser attack
- Right Mouse Button - Invert world color
- R - Restart

Thank you for checking out our game! We were considering giving pistols to shield guys as an alternative weapon, so you would not get stuck when only shield guys left.
Awesome little game here! The reflections felt great and I loved the setting, music and crazy colors. My only problem is that the missiles can be a bit of an issue if they stack on top of each other, but I suggested to different tweaks that could solve it :) Hope it helps!
Thanks a lot for playing our game! We were thinking about dash-move while developing the concept but decided that it would make the game too easy. Seeing how many people who played this prototype have problems with avoiding missiles and getting away from things, we probably should consider adding this feature :D
