Basic Shoot 'em up Boss Battle — Now for sale in the Scirra Store!

This is a fully commented .capx template that can be used to create a boss battle for a scrolling shooter.

There are plenty of guides and templates out there for games that have the player fighting waves of small enemies in scrolling shooters, but few that have the player taking on a larger boss battle. So I decided to make one myself!

Features include :

  • Multiple 'phases' for the boss fight that get harder as the player progresses
  • Shooting patterns for the boss to cycle through and weakpoints on the boss sprite for the player to target
  • Touch controls for mobile and mouse/keyboard controls for desktop
  • Sound effects
  • A 'high score' in the form of tracking and displaying player deaths after the boss is defeated.

Sound assets are either from the free Sound FX pack by GameBurp or Sheekys sound collection. The player ship sprite is from Kenny's game assets pack.

You can play the template here : . Controls are either mobile joysticks or WASD/Arrow keys to move, Space/Mouse to fire.

Any questions, comments or problems, please contact me immediately.
