Hey all. Been making Java games for some time now, and for some reason never thought to join a community. So I was very excited when I chanced upon the website, and would love to have some people try out my game. (in the meantime I'll be checking out all these other awesome projects I see posted).
The game works like this. There is a main map which is randomly generated. Your goal is to find and destroy 10 evil bases scattered throughout. Of course to do this you'll have to upgrade your ship, using your winnings from small skirmishes and other events.
Oh, and I better not forget - the controls. WASD or Arrow Keys to move, Q and E to turn, and Space Bar to shoot. Combat is tricky at first - there are several different movement styles, but I recommend just using W to move forward, and Q/E to turn, no need for strafing. (There are cheats as well. I ask you don't use them until you've given normal play a test. "1" for reveal map, "2" for money).
Frame rate (at the side of the screen), should be a steady 46-48. Please report what it is for you. I'd also like to know what the load times are like.
Thanks to anyone who gives it a try http://crynth.com/games/rheo/
(If 0.5 bugs out, try 0.4)
