Horizontal Shooter

“Create a Horizontal Shooter”.. That was the compo rules for The Horizontal Shooter compo, over at SHMUP-Dev.. Or at least I think it was there.

I started this entry in January 2006. I know this because the game has a directory numbered 031..Since starting Wed.Workshop I’ve been numbering all my dev-dirs according to the number of that week’s workshop!

Why I never finished it, I don’t know.
Maybe I grew bored of it. Or maybe I realised it really wasn’t that much of a challenge.

Whatever the case, tonight I decided to spruce it up a little.. So I added in a few sound effects, tweaked the settings a bit, and then added in a tune I found in my huge Chiptune directory.

So, Enjoy!

Mouse controlled, shoot the right, guard the left. Catch bullets in your trail!

Oh, and watch you don’t fall off the edges since there’s no edge detection! Nice and slow!

For those interested, the chiptune is “chromag-shock_therapy23.xm”

    Couldn’t find an e-mail address to contact you on your website.. seems like a good thing to put somewhere.

    Love the game, the graphics are beautiful. I was wondering how you did the blur effect on the bullet and ship trails. Please drop me a line at the e-mail I used for this post. Thanks!
