Here is the video of my side scrolling shooter. Space has been colonized and now the colonies are at war with the Earth. Oh noez! This level is supposed to be an epic space battle... think Gundam or Macross style.
Video shows basic movement, camera zooms, shooting, barrel rolling (dodge enemy fire), and a pursuit mode (which shifts the area that the player can move, forcing the player to avoid attacking enemies from behind without being able to fire at them).
The player ship is not final (it is just a scanned pencil sketch).
The goal is a dynamic side scrolling shooter that has more play options than just shoot the enemies in front of you.
All graphics, music, and sound are original (though the video didn't seem to record the audio).
