Short Circuit is a sci-fi top-down action game where your spaceship has been taken over by para-dimensional attackers. You must take control of a security robot and use its gun and grappling hook to navigate through the dark ship, take on enemies, and return the essential fuel cores to the reactor. Be careful! Take too long and the robot will run out of charge, leaving you helpless to save the passengers from a grim fate.
This game was developed for EECS 494 at the University of Michigan. It was developed in 7 weeks with a group of five students during the Fall 2021 semester.
