Shmup & Build

Shmup & Build - 0.1

Bander (bander)



** Observe ** - dont download this in hope of playing a finished game, it is still very early in development.

Build Cannons, Generators and Barracks on the big station. Control and level up your smaller guardian ship flying at the front. Shmup and CityBuilding gameplay in one!

Im sorry to say that this project is currently moving very slow, as I ponder the boring but imminent re-write I feel that the messy code needs.

What works currently:

  • placing buildings and drawing them without wierd overlaps.
  • Dragging out roads with an A-star algorithm.
  • Spawning of enemy ships that your guardian ship or cannons can destroy.

All forms of comments and/or critique will be greatly appreciated.

The enemies stopped spawning too quick to try things out. I think it is very limiting if each laser can only hit one column. Will there be other weapons with other patterns?

Wow, really like the K240 / Utopia aesthetic here. Hope you stick this out, very promising
