Here's a project I started about two years ago and just finally got around to finishing. It's a simple Shmup reminiscent of a Galaga or an Invaders, but with a few fun twists.
-Six enemy classes with unique weapons
-New in Version 1.1:
If you want to download a standalone game, it can be found for free over at https://kepler-softworks.itch.io/gravitaz
I also have a short video talking about some parts of the code (enemy logic and the particle system) a bit over on my Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVEEdj82Biw
Feel free to rip out the particle system and use it in your own projects, I really enjoyed using it, and I think with a bit of modification, it could be expanded upon for a lot of other things.
I hope you all enjoy this little game, I know I enjoyed making it, and let me know what your high scores are!
Edit Aug 4, 2022
Decided to come back to the game and try and improve it a bit. Still a few things I'm not super happy with, so there might be a version 1.3 eventually.
-New in Version 1.2:
--New Space Dust!
--Stars are less distracting now!
Very addicting - I like how you have a unique sound cue for each enemy which gives one more time to react. I also like that while you raise the price on purchasing shot upgrades, buying lives remains at 10 coins which makes one feel like they can go on perpetually if they don't die too fast
