Your health is your own attack.

HEALTH SHOT is a brutal top-down shooter where you strafe and shoot your enemies, while managing your shots that take away health.

Originally made by @TheSomeoneXD in 72 hours, for the LD game jam.


  • WASD or Arrow Keys to Move
  • Left Shift to Run
  • SPACE or Z to Shoot


There are two builds of this game; the Jam game submission and the Post-Jam version.

The difference with the post-jam compared to the jam is that I tweaked the balance of enemies and upgrade costs. I also made fireballs more easier to connect to the enemy, where if a fireball hits an enemy fireball, it'll stop receiving collisions instead of still, until it totally disappears.

I also fixed a somewhat game-breaking bug where on a death, there would be two shopkeepers and will cause issues in buying things.  I'd recommend the post-jam if you want to retry over and over. Which... will happen. Crap.
