Cosmic Upheaval is a quick little side-scroll shooting game in which you play the role of an anti-matter star. You were somehow teleported into a real-matter universe, and all the real-matter stars want to kill you! Now you must navigate the universe while ensuring that these stars do not annihilate all of your mass.

This game was made using Gamemaker for a club contest. If it were up to me, I would never have used Gamemaker; while it is simple and rather easy to use, its programming language is much more restrictive. Even worse, it is not an object-oriented language. Regardless, this simple game managed to win the contest.

The main goal of the game is to achieve the highest score you can. Points are earned by surviving and annihilating enemy stars. To destroy a star, all you have to do is shoot it until its mass is depleted. The twist, however, is that shooting also expends your own mass, and therefore one must have good discretion before firing.

The game features five different bosses which represent actual stars in our galaxy. If you manage to defeat the last boss, then you deserve unlimited cookies.

Cosmic Upheaval is only compatible with Windows.
