This is my first actual game thing so please bear with me. Break the Sun is a shmup I've been working on for a while now, I started it this summer to learn to code. I've reached the point where I have a proper beginning, intro and end for the first level so I decided to toss it on the web and see what people think.
It's pretty simple: arrows to move, Z to shoot, X to dodge (if you have enough fuel in your tank, that is). Reach the boss and see if you get the highest score chaining kills with your multiplier. I've implemented a couple tricks I came up with and some stuff inspired by the incredible @lucatron_ on Twitter.
Any feedback – positive or negative – is really appreciated, you can leave them here or reach me on the Tweetles @MrMandolino. Thanks for playing!
EDIT: fixed a bug that could cause you to take damage before appearing on screen
Yeah, the messages are intentionally simulating a CPU struggling to keep up – used poke to mess with the audio and a freeze frame system. Seems like I got it even too right, almost everyone thinks it's a bug.
Auto fire and some sort of dash readiness indicator seem to be the main features it lacks, will see what I can do (definitely implementing the indicator tho)
