Galactic Wars is my first entry for the "2017 1GAM" and my first complete game made in Pico8.
It was developed during january 2017 and it's inspired by classics like: Gradius, Galaga or R-type.
Galactic wars is a "10 minutes" hard & frenetic arcade space shooter with different enemies and weapons and a Final Boss battle.
Joystick or cursor keys to move
Joy button or Z key to shoot
The game will be updated with more enemies and features in the future, but for now you can play this first version :)
I hope you'll like it, please feel free to contact me and share your thoughs about it!
the game is published to play free in Itch.io, if you like the game and want to support me, you can make a donation and get an original instruction booklet and a poster of the game ready to print in the following link:
Okay, so maybe it's just me or something but when I press the fire button manually (no holding it down), it doesn't fire per press...is that right?
I was under the assumption the power meter is just that, for strength of shot and not speed of shot.
I can understand if holding down the button only keeps shooting at a regular interval, but I'd like to think that if I just button mash, that the shots would keep up with me.
Like I said, maybe that's what you intended but it feels very weird, especially out of the gate when you start.
Hey that is seriously pretty fun, and kind of gratifying like xgalaga or something when you get power ups and can totally hose down huge fleets of baddies with your instant death. Alright my record is 1820 so far this is getting good. Fun!
Ey friends, happy Sunday!
I've recently upload a new longplay video of Galactic Wars :)
The score isn't too high, but the evil Galactus X, was defeated ;) and you can see all the different enemies in action.
I hope you enjoy it, thanks!
