Show us your works in progress and request feedback

Post » Mon Feb 08, 2016 8:25 am

Featuring carefully curated 256 color palette sprites, a smashing 16 Bit soundtrack and intense retro action, Fighting Space brings back the glorious days of yesteryear DOS gaming - when red meat, 33.6k modems and colossal 19 inch CRT displays where cream of the crop!

The game will be on public display at the Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival from Sept 16 to Sept 25!

I like it very much. The difficulty is a little unbalanced, it's hard direct from the beginning and the controls on mobil is horrible. :)
Even on my Acer Tablet I have 30-35 FPS and now slow downs as far as i get, but fullscreen doesent work, overall it looks great.

Very good work!
I just think you should do something for the bullets, sometimes they "hide" themselves in the background...
Maybe changing bullets' colors?

Hey, thanks for the feedback!

The mobile controls are a mess, yeah ;)

Probably it won't make it to mobile devices, but I'll check on that later.
I have implemented difficulty levels, so far having 4 of them, easy, normal, hard and brutal.

Polishing some art right now.

Cheers!

Bumpety-bump!

Doing some music: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/295 ... geTest.mp3

It took a while to get the guitar sound like Bobby Prince having a bad day. :P

Also, be prepared for some major bitcrushing.

Stay tuned!

Looks really fun to play!
Gfx are nice, music is superb! Are you using FL studio?
Will be following your game.
I am also making a side scrolling shooter like this! Your game really inspires me!

Hey there, thanks for the feedback.
I create the music using Ableton Live 9.6. Mainly MIDI tracks with a bit of guitar work.
I'm also planning a making of howto sort of video series, maybe covering the Soundtrack creation process later on.

Cheers!
