Artifact Hunter is a bullet hell that was made for Ludum Dare 36 and continued for the October Challenge. You play a character who is searching an old temple for artifacts, however, you find something unexpected at the end...

This game supports USB controllers!

In Artifact Hunter you collect artifacts that give you special powers(like speed boosts or slowing down time)! The gameplay is level based with "checkpoints" and new stuff every now and then. One of the unique things about Artifact Hunter, is that you have to figure out what different artifacts do. You must also figure out various ways to make use of multiple artifacts at once. Another thing you must figure out, is how the various hazards work!

There is also a hidden storyline. If anybody has a guess, please send an email to my support email!

I've got another project I really want to work on, but I'll start making more updates for Artifact Hunter if I get $48 or more. One of the main ideas is to make a level editor. Feel free to donate some extra money if you want it to update. :D


While a level may take around 30 seconds to 2 minutes to beat, the game should take an average of 2 to 4 hours to beat if you are a new player.
