Starmander is a game made in 1 week during the 2022 Goodbye Summer Game Jam.

The theme was TRANSITION

You pilot the Starmander on a mission to eradicate the evil infesting a lone planet.

Your goal is to find and destroy the 3 Brain-clusters within the caverns of the planet.

  • WASD/Arrow Keys: Movement
  • Z: Transform
  • C: [Ship] Fire laser / [Mech] Punch
  • X: [Mech] Thruster
  • P / ESC : Pause
  • Enter: Make Menu Selections

Your Ship mode and Mech mode have separate health bars.

Your Ship takes damage from colliding with the ground.

If your Ship runs out of health, you will be forced into Mech mode and will not be able to switch back to Ship mode until it has regained enough health.

While in Mech form, the Ship will gradually repair.

If your Mech runs out of health, you lose.

Health pickups will repair your Mech first, if damaged, before repairing your Ship.

What an awesome game. I absolutely loved the mech to ship transition and the opening menu screen. So much personality. Great work!
