@ScorchWare Maybe it was rated worse because of probably the cheap hills repeat pattern. the ships that cross wrap the screen and the ufos that not scroll from player's ship direction and speed. But who cares? :) This game was unique and fascinating on the Atari 2600.
I'm honestly thinking about doing mod of this game as my way of dipping my toes into actual gamedev. I hope you don't mind as long I use the same license as the vanilla game, right?
[EDIT: 10-23-2020 9:09 PM]On second thought, I'm not really sure. Maybe in the future, I'll figure it out.
@BGelais Thanks for your blessing. One of the things that I might do is remove the ufo bomber, making the game slightly easier. I also want to make an actual scrolling map/screen so it could feel like a Defender clone. I also want to add elements of a Metroidvania too.
I'm a bit clueless on how to make it that way though, so I might blindly experiment with the code...or get some help.
