Dominion Ex is a vertical-scrolling shoot'em up. Fight 14 different enemies with 4 weapons over 3 levels of space action. (That's 168 pieces of fun!)
It features two difficulties and a ship upgrade system to allow for different play-styles and strategies.
Z - Fire
X - Select weapon
Collect coins to pay for ship upgrades.
To leave a level and visit the hangar to upgrade your ship, you need to fully charge the FTL weapon.
This was a lot of fun to code and a big learning experience. So let me know how you find the game!
@merwok Glad you enjoyed it. You can upgrade the speed of the ship in the hangar if you're finding it a little slow but there's definitely a sweet spot after which your ship is too fast. I'm not keen on bullet hells either, the ones where you're just threading your ship through some crazy geometric pattern of bullets. I have neither the programming know-how nor the inclination to do anything like that so I was definitely modelling the game after less hardcore oldschool titles like the top-down bits in the Thunderforce series.
