War Game

Or course you realise this means war?! Relive the halcyon handheld LCD game days of your youth! The shrill beeps! The slow refresh rate! Or possibly wonder what the hell this thing is meant to look like! Push buttons! Win wars! Go crazy!

War Game was written in ActionScript 3 using Adobe’s FlashBuilder 4.6 and the excellent Flixel library. Sound effects were made in bfxr. The screen font is Digital 7 by Chess 7 and the label font is Misery Loves Company by KC Fonts. Much inspiration drawn from Pica Pic, especially Sub Attack.

You can read my writing about the game on my blog. War Game was featured on Kill Screen, Game Church, The Verge, and IndieGames.com.
