Coin Corsair is a score attack game about dodging cannonballs while collecting coins. You move your ship around a 5x5 gridded map trying to get as many points as you can before being hit 5 times. 

  • Move with WASD or the arrow keys
  • Collecting a coin gives you 2 points
  • Coins will disappear after a few seconds, making you lose 1 point
  • Touching a cannonball makes you lose 1 life
  • The longer you survive, the more quickly cannonballs will fire
  • Your highest score is saved between games

I originally made Coin Corsair in 2014 as a simple game to teach myself Lua and the Corona SDK. It sat untouched but finished for three years before I decided to recreate it in GameMaker Studio 2 as a way to familiarize myself with the program. 

The art, design, coding, and sound effects are all done by me, Tom Marks
