    Vertigo - a hardcore arcade game

    Hi guys! I'm not sure if my project is worthy of posting here, but it's the first game I ever release and I'm very excited about it

    Vertigo is an arcade game that is completely free, open-source and cross-platform. I built it using Ogre3D and BulletPhysics.

    For Linux, I tested on the following distros: Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 and Debian Lenny.

    The gameplay in a nutshell
    You are a probe which is set with 2 shields to protect from fire and ice drones, but only 1 shield is active at a time. You will engage zones, each of which might have a different game mode and different objectives, and you'll be briefed once you're in. You have to flip shields in time to protect yourself, and you can possibly move left and right to avoid some obstacles. It's a pure reflex game, a brain teaser

    Gameplay trailer
    The trailer shows all 4 game modes and 3 of the camera modes: http://youtu.be/6x6BfZNGabc?hd=1

    Screenies
    You can see different states of the game in a couple of the zones below.

    I hope you find it fun, and I'd love to hear any kind of feedback!

    Yes it's just me, a friend helped me with the music though. ^^ None of the assets are my work though, besides of the game's logo. It's powered by free/open-source resources all the way.

    It's meant to be a small game that you'd play in a break. I have some enhancements in mind but right now I'm focused on making the game packagable for Debian / Arch repositories.

    This looks awesome!
    Thank you!
