If you want to wait a day or so I'll be updating the demo, I've made a lot of improvements so it might be worth the wait.

I saw the thread you posted on the Shmups.com forums but hadn't realised you were using playmaker, very impressive indeed.

In some ways it makes me feel a little inadequate, my own project is far more simplistic and yet I still struggle with it at times.  :-[

I also like it!
You can implement a 'speed' pickup and you're free from critique.
From my personal perspective you must do it more 'over the top' (again, this is a question of taste, not a rule). The explosions must be bigger, the projectiles and ships should be bigger then their hit-boxes... anyway, i got excited, thats why i'm suggesting things :)


Thanks for the feedback, I have speed pickups in the game already, in the latest build I've also increased the player ship's base speed.

Explosions still need some work as there is only one type of explosion at the moment and I'm looking into that.

I'll also be tweaking weapon effects as I go .

anyway thanks for taking a look at my project I'm really glad you like it, hopefully things will only get better from here on. :)

I'll upload an updated demo in a few days time.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. :)

This is indeed my first project, I'm pretty much a total novice, I've made maps, mods and even total conversions for other games before but this my first attempt at making a full game. Virtually everything I know about using playmaker comes from watching these youtube tutorials :

I've already had some other people asking me to increase the ship speed so that's one of the first things I intend to fix, and I think I've already figured out a solution to the offscreen firing thing.

Btw the music is Mars The Bringer Of War from The Planets by Gustav Holst, one of my all time favourite classical tracks, it's also public domain so no copyright issues. :)

Thanks again for the feedback.

Hi folks,

For the last few weeks I've been working on an old school style Shoot 'em Up using playmaker (fantastic tool btw), and I now have a playable demo of the first level available.

Here's the download link for anyone who's interested :

LINK REMOVED project updated

and a couple of screenshots :





For more information on the project here's a link to the relevant thread on the shmups.com forums :

anyhow I hope you enjoy my work and big thanks to the playmaker devs for making such a great and easy to use tool.

regards,
