Hello, everyone!


So... I've made multiple games over time. And this one's finally finished.


The object of the game is simple: The skies of Mars are swarming with intelligent UFOs. It is either destroy or be destroyed. There are five types of UFOs to destroy.


Red UFOs --------- 100 Points

Yellow UFOs ------ 200 Points

Green UFOs ------ 300 Points

Blue UFOs --------- 400 Points

Purple UFOs ------ 500 Points


Each UFO type is increasingly difficult. Increasing in speed, firing speed, and even bullet direction. Only 10 of a UFO type appear. Once all of that type are destroyed, the planet becomes darker, as if becoming dusk, and the next batch of UFOs appear. If all Purple UFOs are destroyed the level is completed, as fireworks explode in the sky. You are then awarded with a Bonus of 1000 points. A new level begins, similar to the first one, but much more difficult.


Firing is different in the game. Inspired by Gorf, another arcade game from the time period of this game, you fire a simple shot, but if you attempt to fire another shot, the one already shown will disappear as the new one appears.


The game also checks to see if something is broken (That is what that garbled screen is at the beginning of the game is)

Freakin awesome. Are those sprites you used? Or just drew everything in code? Excellent.
