Luke Daimont: Absolute Mayhem
This game has been created over the course of roughly a week for the Trials of MZ event. As such, it doesn't use any plugins and only RTP assets (with self-edits). Available for Windows and macOS.
When the evil Dr. Psyko threatens to conquer the world with his army of mutants, robots and mercenaries, there's only one man who can stop him... Luke Daimont, a bonafide action hero! Guide Luke on his mission in this sidescrolling SHMUP platformer!
