This is Simple Shooter
In this short basic shmup (Shoot 'em ups) you will face numerous waves of alien invaders trying to destroy our galaxy. Make them feel the taste of your space bullets and cover them with a barrage of bullets
You must shoot down all the aliens. Also, try to collect bonus coins to get special shoots, extra lives, and shields throughout your journey of liberating the galaxy. These power-ups will be very helpful in your task of repealing alien attacks.
Cursor movement: arrow keys
- Fire: Z
- Use special shoots: X
Controllers are also supported.
The game has 8 procedurally generated levels filled with six types of enemies with different movements and attacks, and the final boss fight.
Based on the feedback received during the jam period, some modifications were made:
Overheating mechanic was deleted
Pickups are saved during wave transitions
Shields now have an indicator like the special shoots
The artwork of the first enemy was modified to make clear that it is an enemy and not a pickup
Behavior of the green orbiting enemy and the boss was modified to prevent warping during the attack phase
- Music was added.
Special thanks to:
Gruber for Pico-8 Tunes Vol. 2. I use the songs "Into the Belt", "Flight of Icarus", and "Dimensional Gate" for this project.
My dear friend Fabio Coltro for helping me with the drawing and animation of the boss. I think that working together we got a great boss for this game.
I'd like to thank also TheGacko, Aktane, and the other guys at LazyDevs Discord for playtesting and for the feedback.
