Originally created for the The Independent Gaming Source B-Game Design Contest, Space Barnacle is an homage to the classic 8-bit games of yore.

Hunt for the technology required to obliterate your enemies and avenge your father. Destroy the reactors. Send attackers to their graves. And avoid the deadly machinery that blocks your path!

We're still polishing this game up, but the version submitted for the B-Games Contest is available here:

I played this before, really nice retro-ish game you got there.

Didn't really fit into the B-Game compo IMO, but consider that a good thing ;

Nice game.

This is fun! Reminds me of Cavestory and Lyle in Cube Sector (some of the music is the same ) Thumbs up!

awesome game, but it wouldn't let me exit from the screen where you get the quantum disruptor.

Uh, you might want to leave the DS_Store files out of the zip next time.

In the immortal words of Andy...

I don't like it.
Posted by Golds 1st October, 2007

hey guys, thanks for the feedback!

I'm looking at the bug some are getting with powerups and there should be an update soon.

Imadjinn, did you have any specific issues?
Posted by Lachie Dazdarian 7th October, 2007

Erm...I'm stuck on the screen with 3 fireball spewing plants and 3 bireds. After the first elevator in the game. What am I missing?

Other than that, very nice engine, but the retro-style isn't really coherent and direct as I expected it to be. Not like in Plasma Warrior. And the gore seems out of place.

I still have this game on my computer; I loved it. Really nice style, the retroness was perfect, and overall it was well done.

I don't know if the version I have is old, but the testing keys are still in it for some reason ('D' blows myself up, 'F' restores the animation, 'G' takes me to a testing level.
