New Acrade Game
« on: 2014-Oct-13 »
SOLAR RUSH

Single player arcade game...

Collect power cells on the grid to fuel your boosters and avoid the enemies firing from the sides.

Windows Keys: Arrows and Space (to boost)

I have yet to add the Attack Platforms which will also make the game more challenging

To Do:
- Attack platforms
- 30 Levels / Screens
- Music


***WINDOWS VERSION ATTACHED***

[UPDATED]

This looks (and plays) very much like Transversion on the Spectrum -

[EDIT] Sorry, the YouTube player her on GLB looks like it's broken - says it's an invalid link when put into the YouTube bb code, but it's not. So direct link only. :(

Your version is good :) The only issue I have with your version is that it desperately lacks pacing - the enemies just move and fire too slowly to feel any real pressure through the first few levels. Also as far as I got, I didn't actually use the fire button. Is it actually required?

Thanks Ian

I have also to consider the target users will be using the on screen pad so that needs to be less difficult on the mobile device - keyboard is very handy for these types of games.

Anyhow - try this version and see if its a bit better!

Cheers erico. So when exactly did YouTube start using https? I've posted vids before (even recently) without issue.

It happens with me for around 2 years I guess. I think it is because the youtube page auto logs on my google account and then the s  comes up .
