Space, the year 2014. DGP Space Lion arrived at planet Shetty following a report on a stolen vehicle.
Minutes after arriving, he realized his spacepolice car was missing, most likely stolen by one of the local low-lifes.
Stranded on a foreign world, he must now search the entire planet for his ride and get back home, to file a report.
It's a dangerous world out there, filled with Gnorlms and Knarxals, known to be highly adaptable to any kind of weapon used against them.
May the gods have mercy on their souls.
The enemies evolve quickly, and before long they will resist all your attacks! Try alternating weapons to beat your opponents.
This game and its absolutely accurate physics were inspired by Bollywood cinema.
Scene selection/cheat code:
If you find the game too hard, enter the cheat code LION to get 99 lives, full health, all weapons and type a digit between 1 and 8 to skip to that level.

- General bugfixes: - The game is now fullscreen by default, though you can still switch by pressing F when inside a level. To start the game windowed, run DGP.exe (or main.py) with the command line "-w" or "--windowed". - The game feels smoother now. The FPS is more consistent throughout the game. - Fixed a compatibility issue with non-Windows platforms. - Physics bugfixes: - Fixed bug where DGP would sometimes lose the ability to move after attacking. - It is no longer possible to fall through platforms when falling at high speed. - It is no longer possible to walk through walls. - The collision detection is now done correctly when DGP is attacked while walking. - Fixed bug where "weak platforms" didn't disappear correctly. - Graphics and animation bugfixes: - DGP now has the correct fall animation if the left/right keys are not used while falling. - Aliens will now have their immunities displayed while they're falling. - Fixed bug where using the lasers weapon while facing left caused the screen to scroll incorrectly. - Audio: - Added many sound effects. We collected those from various free sound sites on the web (hey, this is the Jam!), before the deadline, but didn't have time to code them in! - Normalized the volumes. You should now be able to hear DGP's bad puns. - Changes to level 4: - The amount of enemies you must kill to win has been decreased from 10 to 6. - Bugfixes in level 5: - It's now possible to use cheat codes in this level. - Fixed bug where the gems don't appear if the level is played twice. - Decreased the length of the level by 1 second to better sync with the song.
Bonus! The soundtrack (original music by Gal Raviv) is now available for download:
A walkthrough is now available (warning: spoilers).
