Your ship will come into view once he disappears. Four large mines will suddenly become activated.<br /> Maneuver your ship within the galaxy in an effort to destroy the mines.<br /> As you travel through space, fire at the mines. As you destroy them, additional mines will become activated. Be careful . . . the minelayer may reappear to seed the field, but you can blast him as well.<br /> Once you make that part of the galaxy safe, you immediately travel to the next mine field. There are 30 different mine fields, each one becoming increasingly difficult. </p> <p>Pilot Skill<br /> <em>Rookie</em><br /> After your ship is destroyed, a new ship is randomly placed back into the currently active mine field.<br /> Beware: When rammed by the minelayer the mine field is reset!<br /> <em>Veteran</em><br /> Original mode, a mine field is reset after the ship's destruction.</p> <p>Points are awarded for destroying the mines, as follows:</p> <p><code>Type of Mine .L. . .M. . .S. .</code><br /> <code>Floating . . 100 . 135 . 200 .</code><br /> <code>Fireball . . 325 . 360 . 425 .</code><br /> <code>Magnetic . . 500 . 535 . 600 .</code><br /> <code>Magnetic-. . 750 . 785 . 850 .</code><br /> <code>Fireball . . . . . . . . . . .</code></p> <p>Additionally, 110 points are earned for hitting the fireball itself and 1000 points for hitting the minelayer.<br /> </div></div></div></p> <h2>Thank you for volunteering!</h2> <p><div><div><input type="button" value=" Show " onClick="if (this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display != '') { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = ''; this.innerText = ''; this.value = ' Hide '; } else { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = 'none'; this.innerText = ''; this.value = ' Show '; }"></div><div><div style="display: none;">Good luck with your mission, you will need it. It's not an easy task!<br /> Mine field 1 is cleared by many new recruits with &quot;ease&quot;.<br /> Mine field 2 is very tough, until you learn to keep your distance and always fire straight lines at fireball mines.<br /> Mine field 3 seems to be a &quot;piece of cake&quot; compared to the previous if you have mastered the art of thrust.<br /> Mine field 4 . . . the end for many aspiring pilots. Once passed, you have mastered to eliminate all mine types.<br /> Now it's up to you!<br /> </div></div></div></p> <h2>Developer Notes</h2> <p><div><div><input type="button" value=" Show " onClick="if (this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display != '') { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = ''; this.innerText = ''; this.value = ' Hide '; } else { this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName('div')[1].getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display = 'none'; this.innerText = ''; this.value = ' Show '; }"></div><div><div style="display: none;">An adaptation of the classic <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vectrex">Vectrex</a> game <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mine_Storm">MineStorm</a> for your enjoyment.<br /> There were made some changes and additions in the design of the game compared to the original:</p> <ul> <li>The scale of all game objects have been adjusted to suit the smaller screen size better.</li> <li>The movement physics have been adjusted to suit the smaller screen size better.</li> <li>Single player only</li> <li>Two levels of difficulty</li> <li>Multiple ship control settings</li> <li>Autofire (default) is a feature in the options menu.</li> <li>A bonus ship is awarded every 3 levels, instead of every 4 levels.</li> <li>30 mine fields, instead of 13.</li> <li>Space dust is not included.</li> <li>The ships mysterious escape feature is much safer to use than in the original.</li> <li>The overlay HUD shows the current mine field number in the bottom left corner.</li> <li>The overlay HUD is dynamic and parts are being turned on and off during game play.</li> <li>A victory screen is awarded after clearing all 30 mine fields.</li> <li>Persistent high score.<br /> </div></div></div></li> </ul> <h2>Downloads</h2> <p>Executables available on <a href="https://a-tom-games.itch.io/minestorm-pico">itch.io</a></p> <h3>Pilot's commentary section below:</h3> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=46482 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=46482 Sun, 06 Feb 2022 23:07:02 UTC
