Hi all,
Here's a little video of my new game: Astrarium. It's a space shoother, done with AppGameKit (tier 1), inspired by Uridium and other great games.
It will be released in Febrary 2.014 for Windows, Mac and Android.



Hope you like it and excuse the poor video quality

Best regards!

Thanks for your comment, MikeMax!
I'm doing some advances in the game: up to 4 planes of depth, scroll now left more space to see the incoming enemies, new levels...
I hope finish the game in a few days.

Thanks, Agent Shadow.
I'm finishing the game levels now. I've finished 6 of the 12 levels that game contains... I'm really slowly making levels (design, test, adjust difficult, test again...)
I hope do a release next week or so...

Anything that takes inspiration from a Braybrook classic is ok with me.

Looking good BraindeaD.

Hi

Your game looks good.

What technic do you use for the bullets (because AppGameKit doesn't have linked list I think) ?

Has AppGameKit additive blend mode (for explosion) or a technic to simulate that ?

I'm waiting for the android version .

Hi blendman, thanks for the comment!
For the bullets I've used an array of types. Each time I want to create one new bullet, I look in the array the first empty cell. In the main loop, I read the array up to the last used item and updates it (advance, check collisions and so) when the bullet dies (get out from the screen or collides with any enemy) I erase the associated sprite and clean the array element in order to have it ready if it is needed again. Sorry for the bad explain, my english is really bad.
The explosions are just pngs with alpha and much bright, used with a relative dark background it seems to have additive blend, but it hasn't. In the v2 of AppGameKit we will get the additive blend!!!

Hope it helps.
