Jam: Ham's Heart Jam  -  Theme: Heart

Hearts is a game we developed mostly in one day, for Ham's Heart Jam. The gameplay is pretty simple, you are playing as the three ubiquitous hearts from game UI of old, and you are trying to avoid baddies and also shoot them. 

The unique bit is that the three hearts follow each other in a chain, which means when all three are alive that avoiding enemies is much more difficult. To balance this out, each heart you have alive shoots independently, so each time you get hurt there is a tradeoff of firepower for less vulnerability.
