Lockdown Protocol is a high-score-oriented shooter/platformer game with built-in level editor and multiplayer support.

You are a lone scientist in a research facility on lockdown. Something must have gone horribly wrong since everyone and everything is trying to kill you. Fight your way out, collect items and bigger weapons on the way and blast your enemies into pieces! Complete levels fast and leave nothing alive to reach the highest scores!

Note: This game is still a work in progress. It is feature-complete and has been released for public beta testing, but it is not a finished product yet.

I'm sorry I missed your comment here (I'm still not getting any notifications on new comments here).

Is the created level missing from the list of levels to select, or does it give some error when you try to play it?

The level must have a single player start point for it to be available for single player games.

When I load a level I made, the screen just shows the background and nothing else happens. I put in one of those SP Start blocks but it's like none of the objects load.

Problem solved, I replied to your email.

The game expects all moving stuff like enemies to stay inside area formed by wall/floor/ceiling blocks. The level in question had a lot of enemies placed outside outer walls, which eventually caused problems when starting the level.

Any plans on local coop game mode? Also known as 'couch coop'

Sorry for the late answer. There are no plans for a coop mode, local or otherwise. I have thought of local split screen multiplayer mode for basic deathmatch, but I'm not sure if that will ever get implemented.

Great! Your reply was very helpful. This commands solve the problem for me:

cd .desura/games/the-platform-shooter/lib (I'm using the Desurium client)
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libXaw.so.7 libXaw.so.7
