Depot Games: HalfLight: Annivesary Edition

Current Version: 1.01b

Project Status: Completed

Links: Web Site

Category: Space Shooters

Developers: David Grace

Ports: Windows

Source Code: Not Available

Author's Description: This is a straight port of HalfLight 1.01b to Windows. (Sorry, 1.02's code is eternally lost due to a HD crash...) While it's basically the same game as HalfLight, it does add a lot of new features, including:

* Inertia - ship moves naturally
* No more single-hit kills, you 'bounce back' if you ram into something.
* Removed pesky enemies-attacking-while-dialogue-ocurring 'feature.'
* New translucent foregrounds, so you can see what's going on.
* Two new game modes: Time-Attack and Gauntlet. Both now record your score, including the normal game.
* Additional new super-weapon, that can be picked up during gameplay.
* Brand new ending to the game.

  • 6I love the transition effects and sequences, and the story, but the enemies aren't that great (especially their movement patterns) and that really hurts gameplay. Music and graphics are average. The installer should allow to customise installation and start menu locations.
  • 8Yey, what a game. The 6 levels are very funny. Good graphics with videos, great sound and FX, good control of your ship. Levels are designed fine and it's quite difficult. Try it out!
