Hey! You can now see the leaderboard at the bottom of the page, or follow this link to share the standalone website!
Freshaliens is a 1.5-players 2d platformer. That means that the game is conceptually thought to be played by one person controlling both characters simultaneously, but two-player-one-keyboard cooperation is also encouraged to play the game under a different light!
You can see a changelog of what we've made better since the prototype scrolling to the bottom of the page.
Main Character (Yellow Alien):
Side Character (Green Alien/UFO):
Move: IJKL or Directional Arrows
Jumping again while touching the UFO will grant a double jump :D
In a remote galaxy of the universe there is an alien race of conquerors which use to conquer as many planets as they can.
When children turn 10 they are sent in couple to conquer their first planets.
Will be our two little aliens able to conquest all their assigned planets

We're working on a new input configuration. We'll take this into consideration, thank you ;
In the beginning, the UFO tells me that it will throw me if I jump on it, I tried and nothing happened. You probably want to fix this before everyone plays, or if I'm doing something wrong, it should be explained better
