First of all, I've been working on this for a while, its a fairly big project, and its not nearly finished (I know construct is in beta etc etc, but I cant be bothered to wait 10 years for 1.0, and even at this stage (crashes and all) its 1000 times better than any other alternative )
So in this early stage I thought I'd show you guys the game so you can give me your opinions and some constructive criticism.
It's called Robotron, based on the old (and completely awesome) game Robotron: 2084 but set in the same universe as one of my other games (there was already a character called robotron and I couldnt resist ).
The idea is this zone is like the original game but there will be multiple zones expanding the game into new fronteirs, with new enemies, powerups etc.

I'm pretty terrible at animating things so you'll probably notice as a substitute I've just piled on 1000 pixel shaders on everything, as such there is a graphics setting in options if its laggy for you.
(also if you don't want annoying music made by me turn it off in options )
The controls are:
WASD - movement
Arrow keys - shoot in that direction (hold down 2 for diagonal)
ESC - menu
You get a new life every 20000 points, so score is important
Green things (called xortrons) are vital for the above reason, they give you 1000 for the first one you get, 2000 for the next, etc, up to 5000 where its capped.
If you can, its worth saving some poweurps to the end of each level, so you start the next level (when there are the most enemies) with them, be careful though, if you die all the powerups on the floor dissapear.
The biggest problem I have with this game however is it crashes, when too much stuff is happening at once (for example if you have lots of stacked powerups and are blasting the crap out of 100 enemies at once), and sometimes even when not that much stuff is happening at once, it crashes. I am 99% sure this is construct bugging and not my fault . (if any admins want the cap i'll be happy to send)
Thanks, hope you enjoy
