Unlocking Cold Fusion has been Marcus’ life-long goal. However, after the accident left his colleague Molly in a coma, that goal seemed unachievable.

Mind Jolt is a tribute to my favorite Game Maker game of all time, Ted Lauterbach (rotten_tater)’s Mind Shock. If you haven’t played it by now, I strongly suggest you do it, it’s amazing: http://www.rottentater.com/games.html

Mind Jolt a Bullet Hell arena shmup with 20 Waves, but it’s intended to be accessible. Even if you’re no good at Bullet Hell games, this shouldn’t frustrate you too much. It’s more about the patterns than the twitch-dodging.

The music is generously provided by Ted Lauterbach, who made new tracks specifically for this project :D

Mind Jolt supports Game Jolt Online High Scores. If you have a Game Jolt account, you can upload your fastest completion times to the Worldwide Leaderboard.

This isn’t a 100% replication of Mind Shock. I don’t think you’re truly paying homage if you’re covering all the same ground as the original. It’s really intended to highlight how I felt when I first played Mind Shock, and what I love about it, even if there are some noticeable differences :3

You MUST unzip the archive onto your computer before you play, or else you’ll get scary errors D: Also, I’m not sure how well this will run on older computers. I recommend closing other applications if you’re getting lag.

Please give an actual reason as to why you dislike something. Personally I enjoyed the game but thought it is to close to mind shock. It is the differences that make this a good game.

This game is absolutely fantastic, except that you move too slow. You should at least move fast enough that you can outrun the enemies.

Provided you aren't shooting, you can easily outrun the enemies. Sorry, didn't really explain that, it was in Mind Shock too

It's ok, but It's definatly too long and too slow for my tastes. One of the things I loved about Mind Shock was how fast-paced it was, and Mind Jolt does not have the fast-paced feeling of Mind Shock in my opinion.

Cool game that fit into Taters world perfectly. Too long for my taste, but since that is personal taste, probably was not even worth mentioning.

Very much like that you made the speed decrease while firing more prevalent, though it will cause problems for non-shmup people like me (yes, I did say I liked something that made the game hard for me to play).

I had no lag issues. The bosses were not cheap, but you do have to move and watch for their patterns. I miss screen wrap, but understand why it was removed (was that is both wave shock and mind shock? I am not even sure now).

anywho, TLDR post is over. Great Game.

Graphics were good but it was lagy and slow, and the bullets were slow too. Nothing worse than a slow game, good try though.

It wasn't anywhere near as smooth as tater's version, which was somewhat disappointing. :(

:( Sorry to hear that. For future reference, what do you mean by "smooth"? Lag, graphics? I do know that additive blending doesn't work on some graphics cards.
