Thank you for the friendly reply and the suggestions so far!
The mouse position related shoot direction is good - so i already implemented it. But i kept the pure cursor key version (change it with CAPS LOCK).
Here the story (so far) and some background informations about the game project...
Evil aliens came down to earth and stole the worthy ???????.
So we start a mission to find this alien to bring back the ??????? - and for revenge .
You are one of the heroes aquipped with the best space ship we have, a laser gun und an alien-scanner to detect the evil aliens.
Your job is to find and eliminate them and bring back ??????!
You travel from planet to planet and (later) from galaxy to galaxy searching the evil aliens.
And you will meet a lot of different life forms.
On your way you find *** alie******************************ogy (collect to upgra********** to pass *******************ies. (sorry bad connection )
The more life forms you scan the better get your armour and weapons... you will need it to fight the final evil
BIG BOSS ALIEN
I keep you updated with the newest version of the game here in the first post... (and other stuff)
Hope you like it - it makes a lot of fun to create this game.
- control changed
- new alien sprites
- asteroids like gameplay in space (attacking ufos will follow)
- new energy ressourced (barrels) (green)
- shield system (incl. ressources / violet)
- harmless up to attacking aliens
- a helmet for the hero!
The most artwork is from Bevouliin (see credits) - i'm a coder not an artist.
So i have to use these sprites (and i like them).
And yes - there are a lot of different aliens (air, ground and liquid) ~ 130 and other cool stuff.
And this meight become a problem: the size of the game. (firefox have already problems with animations)
So better use Chrome oder IE.
The music meight be upgraded, but sounds are also very memory consuming - so i will see...
The procedurally generation is an ongoing progress (thats why i create the game).
Currently i change the planets environment/color/behavior similar to the planets in space.
Aliens type, behavior, strength, ... will go with the planets environment.
And (for the gameplay) it will get more difficult of cause. (less new life forms, big opponents, hard space fights, ...)
And last but not least: you can't die in this game. It will just take more (much more) time to win...
