Author's Description: .:SpaceShips:.
This is my first game submitted to The Depot. It was written for the SpeedHack, but I found a number of bugs that could prevent it from running on some systems, and I've made the levels a lot harder, particularly the final one. It is a side-scrolling space shooter, it uses a tile-based map system.
It is a two player game, but one player can play, whilst learning to be ambi-dextrous by using both controls. The players do not play against each other, but with each other, handing over control of the ship every time they collect a banana. Both players use SpaceBar to shoot. There are three levels, the first designed to be fiendish, the second extremely difficult, and the third impossible. As I said, this was written for SpeedHack 2006, but it is better than the one I submitted. When I submit it now, it is the day after the SpeedHack finished, so there isn't that much extra work done on it.
