Almost finished Starsceptre - my second Codea game

in General Posts: 238

Hi, so this game has been almost two years in the making. I've been on these boards on and off for help and everyone has been brilliant.

I wanted it share the latest trailer in the rush to finish this game. Hope you like.

    Wow, that is awesome. Love the artwork, the way the ship tilts.

    Is it a bullet-hell mechanic, with bullet grazing and so on?

    Tell us about the controls. Lots of shots of people tapping their iPads, please tell me it also has an auto fire option! It also looks like it has tilt controls? Is there an option for touch controls too?

    It's interesting how fit and finish always takes waaaaaay longer than getting to the initial proof-of-concept.

    Congratulations for sticking it out.

    @Majormorgan Well done, amazing job! Love the retro style graphics and music. Let us know when it's available on the AppStore!

    @Majormorgan I am also making a spaceship game right now, and if anyone were to compare mine to yours side to side, they would delete my game. Yours looks freaking amazing, Great Job!

    @Majormorgan that's the coolest game I've seen made in Codea. I remember your early prototypes — and I used to demo them to people to show off Codea because they were so stunning.

    That game is fantastic! :o
    I'm really impressed with the graphics and artwork! This is definitely one of the best games I've seen on Codea! :) I can really understand how that took 2 years! ;)

    Beautiful. Fantastic work. Every minute of the time you spent shows in the finished product.

    Thank you all for your kind words and support.

    Some of you have been on this journey with me as I've discovered new ways to code and some of you have created code I could use directly when my tiny mind hasn't been able to comprehend it. It has all been an amazing and long experience. I hope once its out you love it as much as I do. Will keep you all posted. Thanks again!!!!
