I've started working on very basic shoot em up because I thought something along the lines of "Everyone and their mom is trying to make metroid vania platformer as their first game, but why shouldn't I go for something that I know how to put together mechanically?"
So here's the screen capture of how the game looks so far.
Obviously it's early work in progress since it lacks stuff like GUI, and requires some tweaks.
Now in this gif in particular there is a mistake I didn't notice until after the capture - the explosion animation for the enemies is upside down as I forgot to flip it after adding it to the project.
Also I need a name for the game, I wasn't able to come up with one other than "Generic shmup"
