Ok... here goes...

So I've been on JGO for a while now and have never posted anything in the Showcase section mostly because I didn't (and still don't) think anything I've written was good enough to post. BUT if I don't post something I never will, and I finally got my main "project" to a point where I'm happier with it then I used to be.

[size=12pt]Space[/size]

Space is a small side scrolling shooter game that's a lot like the old Galaga game. It's pretty simple, and I've been working on it off and on for a while now. Some of the code is kind of messy and I'm sure that I'm doing more than one thing in a weird/bad way so feel free to browse the source code and critique my work. Suggestions and criticism are encouraged since that's one of the reasons I'm posting. So please let me know if it doesn't work for you.

Features:
- Crappy artwork by me
- Pausing
- You get 3 lives
- An infinite number of levels. The number of Aliens increases each level until you die or the game crashes

Controls:
- WASD or the arrow keys for movement
- Space Bar to shoot

Rules/Gameplay:
- Shoot sh*t till you die, or beat the level
 
Screenshots:




Updates:
- 11/4/11
  * Changed artwork a little
  * Collision checking is done before movement now
  + The version is now displayed on the start menu

Sweet game! However, the bounding box of the spaceship seems to be a bit too big since they don't visually collide but the game is over when they are clearly at least 5-10 pixels apart.

I changed the images so that they don't have any unnecessary space on the edges now which should help a little, and I also moved collision checking to the beginning of each update so that should help as well. The updated version should be in the downloads section.

Thanks, it was a quick way to add more game play without actually adding more game play Smiley Unfortunately I haven't been able to crash it yet (I suck at my own game)

Thanks for trying it guys Smiley I appreciate the feedback
