This is my thesis game at the University of Utah.It is a sci-fi robot shooter with a spin on the classic arcade rail shooter by adding in strategic planning. The gameplay is split in two phases: planning and action. When planning, you take the role of BURT by plotting your route of escape on a 2D map and picking up batteries along the way. In the action phase, you take the role of IRN-E by exploring the 3D map, picking up weapons and items and shooting down rogue robots that impede BURT’s path. The completion of each level is dependent on the cooperation of the robot duo as BURT provides the power while IRN-E provides the protection.
