Joe4K: An Action-RPG

The Armada:
Zorby (Level 1 and Above) - Zorby is the basic soldier of the alien armada. Slow but persistent he will never stop his pursuit. The only armada member unable to fly, whose jealousy of Joe's flight ability (Level 4) unlocks his slimeball cannon.

Spira (Level 3 and Above) - Spira uses her razor sharp spines to gouge enemies. Her ability to fly is only hampered by weak acceleration, allowing a fast Joe to outmaneuver her.

RoboBlasto (Level 5 and Above) - The armada's planet-killer. While these come in short supply their destructive power is unmatched. They have a huge amount of hit-points. If their destructo-orbs weren't deflect-able they would be unstoppable.

Squidoo (Level 6 and Above) - The most feared member of the armada. These flying squid monsters have a decent amount of hit-points and are able to turn on a dime. They should be anyone's first target in an invasion.
