Depot Games: HalfLight: Annivesary Edition
Project Status: Completed
Links: Web Site
Category: Space Shooters
Developers: David Grace
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.
Overall Rating: 7.0
