Description

Platformines is a retro-styled procedurally generated platform shooter with rogue-like elements. Trapped in the mines your mission is to collect the nine different block cannons spread throughout the mines and use them to rebuild your "Robodig" vehicle and escape.

The mines are full of energy crystals and precious metals which, along with found weapons and hats, can be sold at the shop for money, which also sells weapons and a few upgrades to your health and carrying capacities. Energy crystals can alternately be consumed for a small health boost. Also filling the mines are armed human enemies, automated turrets and strange flying monsters hindering you. Killed enemies will often drop money, or sometimes weapons or hats.

You can shoot in all four directions and also jump several times in the air to reach tall heights. Weapons fall into four categories - pistols, shotguns, machineguns and bazookas - and you can equip one of each. New guns can be dropped by enemies, found in chests or bought from shops. All guns of a type have the same magazine size, but varying damage, range, reload speed and projectile speed. Hats and wigs give some small stat bonuses to weapons, defense or jumps. Dying will make you respawn at the base for the cost of 5% of your money, with the items you carried dropped on the spot. Portals scattered throughout the mines can, once activated, be teleported to directly from your base to ease in exploration and travel.

There are three difficulty settings, initially only normal is available with the next one unlocked each time you finish the game on.
