A downloadable game for Windows

Ground War is an action-packed platformer shooter meant for offline play. You have the option to customize your class, killstreak, map, and gamemode for maximum fun! There are a wide variety of weapons to fit your playstyle and a selection of maps and gamemodes to keep you busy. This is a student project that I put together in 2 months. 

IF YOU HAVE A SLOW COMPUTER READ THIS: You can go into the options menu and enable "optimize" to make the game run better if you are experiencing any frame drops.  

Install instructions

If windows says that the file may harm your computer, then just click "More Info"  and then "run anyways"

I started playing the game expecting to find a simple shooter, instead I was surprised to find a bit of complexity regarding the gameplay, like different weapons, the ability to use an helicopter and some tactical approch to the action. I wanted to see some differentiation regarding the background instead of the flat color, and I am not fully convinced about the design decision to shoot beyond the screen edges, that can make projectiles hard to avoid. I can say that it was definitely an intersting and enjoyable shooter!

ya sorry I just got lazy with the background, I guess I'll work on making it more complex. Also just to let you know the bots can't shoot you when they are outside your screen (unless on nightmare mode). Thanks for the feedback and I'll tell you when I implement your suggestions!

Enjoyable little arena shooter! I like how the enemies fight eachother so you feel like you're part of some giant battle royale war thing. The lack of audio was very off-putting. I suggest going to Chiptone or Bfxr and making quick sounds.


Hey I've updated the game with sounds and gameplay changes! Try fiddling with some of the settings in the options menu too!! 

Thank you so much for the suggestions!

Very fun game!

fun little game with some sadistic bots :p

you can change the Bot Difficulty if necessary
