@stirky - a nice version of the classic game! I played it to completion. Some of the waves were significantly easier than others. Still, nice to have an ending that I don't think the original ever had.

I've got no issue with demakes that deviate from the original, but I have a few observations:

  • Why did you make the main player multi-coloured? For me, it breaks the aesthetics slightly.
  • No score, or bonus pick-ups !! Personally, I prefer games with scores but I can see that your demake is about getting past level 16.
  • Love the booster flare and how it is different for take-off and landing. A very nice touch.

A cool demake that I really enjoyed playing. Thanks for posting!

Thanks Phil, glad you liked it. I did start with a single colour player and then got carried away! I was going to add scores and bonuses but ran out of time!

Fixed a bug whereby the game could crash after liftoff.

Thanks for reviving my Speccy nostalgia, Stirky! Do you have any plans of adding bonus point items and score at some point in the future?

Thanks for playing. No plans to add anything else to this game at the moment. Although, I've been thinking of trying to re-create a c64 game, maybe wizball or paradroid.
