Orbital Eunuchs Sniper

Orbital Eunuchs Sniper

Orbital Eunuchs Sniper is an addictive overhead shooting game.

It is a simple game in which the player must control an orbital laser to prevent harm from coming to the VIPs (in blue squares) in the form of human threats (in red squares). Avoid killing the neutral humans, however, or else you may be 'retired'.

The year is 2174, and you have been ordered to function as an orbital sniper. In your world there's just three kinds of people: VIPs, dissidents and normal citizens. VIPs run the world: they must not come to harm. Dissidents must die. If a commoner or two gets wasted in progress, it'll count against you when your post ends. Protect the VIPs by assasinating threats with an orbital laser.

The game was originally created by Jari Komppa for the Ludum Dare 48-hour programming competition.

A typical game round lasts for about 4 minutes. It starts out easy, but gets rather nasty later on.
