Cognizance is a 2D horizontal shooter game that combines a traditional shooter with puzzle and RPG elements. Get through all of the phases and defeat the boss at the end to win! We have entered it in shmup-dev's horizontal shooter contest.

Gameplay: In the first phase of the game, some enemies will have numbers on them. Kill these enemies to add that number to the empty boxes at the top of the screen. Some of these boxes will have stats underneath them. Placing a number in that box will increase that stat relative to the value of the number. In the second phase, some enemies will have words on them. Your goal is to kill enemies that have misspelled words! Enemies which do not have words are safe to kill. If you do kill an enemy that has a valid word, it will counterattack. During the boss phase, stand on the elemental tiles for an additional attack. The boss gains different attacks depending on the difficulty selected. Controls: WASD or arrow keys: move player Spacebar or Ctrl: shoot You may also use the mouse to move your character and left-click to shoot. Esc: Pause game and see current stats Alt+Enter: Switch between full screen and windowed mode. Download (4.8MB) Showcase Entry
