Lockdown Protocol is a high score oriented shooter/platformer game with built-in level editor and basic network multiplayer support.
You are a lone scientist in a research facility on lockdown. Something must have gone horribly wrong since everyone and everything is trying to kill you. You must fight your way through individual levels, collecting items and bigger weapons along the way, and finally reaching exit. Perfect your gameplay to reach the highest scores!
Note: This game is still a work in progress. It has been released for public alpha testing, but it is not a finished product yet. Please try it and report back to us. Tell us what you think and how the game could be improved. With your help we can make it better!
The game comes in two versions: free playable alpha demo and full version. By pre-purchasing the game now you support its development and get an early access to the full version. You'll also get a 40% discount!

This release focuses on improving game play and making the game generally more fun. Most of the changes are based on feedback I got for the last alpha version and suggestions from test play sessions with friends.
The biggest change is the added shield device. Gun fights in open corridors with no cover available were a big source of frustration. The shield device aims to fix that by allowing creation of temporary cover. You will need to collect power cells to use it, so it's not always available.
Enemy guards have been made easier to kill and there's a bit more of them now. This leads to game play with more action and less player deaths. At the moment the game play is slightly easier than I intended. It will get a little harder when I create one more enemy type and place them to existing levels.
There's also a new alternative multiplayer skin that can be unlocked by helping spread the word in social media. Select "Support / Share in social media" in the in-game menu to launch the browser, share a link to game page on social media services of your choice and the new skin will become available in player settings.
Here's full list of changes since 0.18.0 alpha release:
More information and direct downloads are available on the website. The update will soon be available on Desura too:

@HobbyGameDev I vaguely remember typing in source code from a magazine on VIC-20 and later making my own games in QBasic on PC in early 90s
