D.A.V.E. Against the Machine is as action/strategy game, inspired on classics like Bomberman. It was initially developed in 4 days for the GBJAM5, then I'm updating the game adding a versus mode, that is really fun.

In this game you play as D.A.V.E. in his quest to defeat the machine's Core.

For fulfill his quest, he is equipped with his GunByte that can alter the data blocks in the sectors he pass and his sword the "H4ck3r" that can destroy anything.
