[WIP] Tap Defender

Show us your works in progress and request feedback

I'm working on a little concept inspired from the classic "defender". Do you 'member DEFENDER?

Tap Defender is a simple side scrolling shooter populated by a lot of old enemies and others stuffs from '80!
The game is intended for mobile phones, so the controls are the simplest possible:

- tap to the left side of the screen to fly and to the right side to shoot; stop flying AND swipe in the right side to BOMB enemies.

- Is possible also to play with keyboard: spacebar to fly, right shift to shoot and ctrl to bomb (in this version you don't have to stop flying to bomb, what of two systems is better?)

Looking wonderfully retro. Good to see the progress on the movement and the level design from the start to where it is now.

Keep it up!

thanks a lot! I've updated the game with the middle BOSS :) My intent is to build a modern-retro-styled-shoot'mup with simple commands and a lot of memories from the '80!
