Pirates & Lasers
Winner of "Blinks Best In Show" at Playcrafting NYC Global Game Jam 2020
Keep your ship afloat in this unique strategy game. Repair the deck each round as your ship is being attacked.
A turn has three stages - Rearrange, Repair, and Lasers! During Rearrange, Ship and Hazard Blinks are moved to prevent damage. During Repair, resources can be moved from one part of the Ship to another. During Lasers!, the Hazard Blinks fire off their lasers, dealing damage to any part of the Ship in its path. The game ends when any part of the Ship hits zero health. See how many turns you can survive in a given scenario!"
