Some feedback

First I want to say: I loved this when it was out originally and this looks like a very nice remake of it!

Realy like the ability to save to stand-alone file, impressive :-)

Some small things:
Player animation in 8-way mode when not steering any direction is locked to show left animation. (I don't have a joystick connected)
Why not exit testmode with escape and prevent exiting the program from the escape key, ask the user instead if he/she wants to exit.


I agree, still a fun program and a very educational way for explaining the various steps that you need to do to make a Shmup, even today.

OK, fixed this and a few quirks.


Sorry it didn't fare better in the compo Gernot. I think it's ace!  :good:

Oh, I'm very happy with the ratings. I expected far worse.
Anyway, it was really fun to write.


Me too! (agreeing with FutureCow)  Really brings back good memories.  :good:

Little late to the party, but...

Well, as the only reviewer to give it a (fairly) high mark, I have to say that I'm actually disappointed that the other judge's didn't see how good it is. :(

Sure improvements could be made, but what's there reminded me of the goode olde days of yore that I spent hours round my mate's house, designing the "Bestest Shooter Evah"

I think it's ace.
I came. I saw. I played.

Aw, that's soothing. Thanks a lot. I sort of liked making it and I think the average artist can make a not totally bad game with it.
