Behind the scenes
Hey guys, I am an architect, not a programmer. I made this game to capture some nostalgia from my teenage years when games like Galaga were available to play at the back of your convenience store.
This game exists as an artifact of the shmup tutorial by Lazy Devs Academy. Thanks Krystman for allowing me to pretend I was a game developer in the late 1970's!
A lot of people ask, what is the stuff at the bottom of the interface? The simple answer is SHOTS, HITS, % ACCURACY, WAVE #, PREVIOUS HIGH SCORE.
In the original Galaga, the game kept track of your accuracy, and told you what it was when your game was over. I wanted to do something similar, but this was as far as I got!
