Duo Duell
an incredibly short boss-corridor shooter.

Controls:
-Move with WASD or arrow keys
-Shoot with Z or J
-Hold shift to move slower

Supply your own music. I didn't want to bloat the size of something so small and I don't get along with midis. I recommend this song:

Duo Duell was developed for the RDC (a biweekly 4-hour competition) that never was. The theme was 'duel', so me and Snail Productions figured we might as well make a duel out of it, seeing how we were the only two to show up. (There was a third entrant a bit later in.) It won by unanimous voting from a whooping two judges versus an astounding two competitors:

<Alti> okay I found an advisor ._.
<Alti> here are his remarks:
<Alti> "First one sucks"
<Alti> "Second one sucks"
<Alti> and then "Third one's okay"
<Alti> so I think we've found a winner


There you have it: Duo Duell is "Okay". Get it while it's hot!

Game update:
-There is now an ini-file generated upon the game's creation where you can enable and disable sound (press 5 in-game for this), an FPS counter (F), and the scanline effect (only available through the ini-file). You can also set the game's room_speed, though the variables in the game will be compensated to fit. Good for owners of 120Hz monitors and incredibly terrible computers alike!
-Enemy bullets now explode along with the boss, meaning you will no longer die right after defeating a boss.
-You can press buttons 1 to 4 to warp directly to that boss for fun and practice.
-File size decreased by 4kB somehow!

Ah, yes, the second form is a bit on the cheap side. However, Duo Duell is mostly a puzzle game and all the forms are quite easy when you know the trick to beating them.

The second form is defeated thusly:
Spoiler


Also, I've updated the game because why not. It'll enable you to warp directly to a boss for easier practice.

Thank you for trying my game, by the way. I appreciate your input.

The heck, this was ridiculous. I see now by your last post here, that there is a 'trick' to beat each level.

Well, I beat the game without knowing that. :P You didn't disable f5-6, and for me, that's gonna be the only way I could beat this game.

Well, I beat the first 3 without needing to save, but the 4th one is a pain. You die, then have to start all the way at the beginning. :(

Edit: Managed to beat the 4th boss without saving(although I just 'warped' straight to that level)

Well the game isn't as ridiculous as I first thought! Now that I know it's more puzzle-ish, the game plays a lot better... I'm not trying to blast the heck out of him, I'm trying to figure out his attacks, which is pretty cool.

Whoa, saving works? Meh, I'll leave it in, why not. It'd be a bigger problem if the game had a scoring system.

Congrats on kinda-beating it! Here, have a star: *

Just beat it without saving. :) Dang! :D

Btw, huge ship, tiny collision box. Seems a bit weird to have bullets clearly hitting the ship, but not getting hurt.

Congratulations! You and Maerron are the unofficial GMC Shmups Aces! The hitbox is pretty huge by shmup standard. In Giga Wing your hitbox is about three pixels large. Here's a visual guide for those who're having trouble:

Hah, you make it look easy! I can't believe it only takes that long to beat the game. I think it took me 10 minutes of steady play, trying to master the patterns (and mostly calm my nerves!) I kept on jerking about the place after beating the 3rd boss, so the 4th one would get me with his first attack. :P
