NodeRunner is an arcade style game made Solo for the ScoreSpace x Alakajam in 72 Hours.
The Goal of the game is to launch yourself from Node to Node, collecting points and power ups while outrunning the Chaser Node that is slowly but surely following you. If you miss a node, you'll be stranded until one bumps into you, so time your launches carefully!
The Game makes itself procedurally more difficult the further you get, making getting a high score an exponential challenge!
Controls - Keyboard
WASD / Arrow Keys - Launch while connected to a Node
Spacebar - Deploy an Emergency Node (Once you've collected one)
Escape or X - Pause game (Also brings up Settings while in game)
Controller support is implemented, however you're still restricted to 4 directions of movement to keep a level playing field.
Controls - Controller (Tested on Xbox 360 Controller)
Left Joystick - Launch from Node
A Button - Deploy Emergency Node
Start Button - Pause / Settings
