Tiny Alien Invader was made in 12 hours for the Low Rez Jam, and was originally released in May 2014. It's a platformer where you get to play as the bad guy. You control a tiny one-alien army intent on wiping out the human fleet. You spend your time finding and boarding human spaceships, and then destroying them from the inside.
WHY WE MADE IT
The Low Rez jam was a challenge to make a game with a native resolution of 32x32, which is ridiculously small by modern standard (about 2.5 times the size of your mouse cursor!). It seemed like a fun challenge, especially to get any character out of the tiny animations.
CONTROLS & HELP
Press X to start the game. Use the arrows to move your ship and then press X to attack a bigger ship when you find one. When you're aboard a ship, use arrows to move and X to shoot. Hold Z and then press a direction arrow to teleport.
When you first start out, there is a small red dot pointing in the direction of the nearest ship. Fly close to a ship and press X to board it. Once on board try to stay out of sight and then teleport behind an astronaut when they are facing the other way, then X to zap them.
