Just starting out... needs a lot of work. Can't figure out how to get big ufo (home) to not flicker.

In multisprite mode, if two or more players above player0 share the same y axis, they will flicker. So unless someone has a way to work around this, I think it'll have to flicker. Nice game so far, though.

Thanks! Yep. I was hoping I could get it somehow to where the big ufo flickering wasn't so bad. I think that using the playfield may be the best option.

I love the look! Great job so far.

How about on the big UFO, perhaps make it an enery field instead
so the flicker is actually an effect?

Check out this version, and let me know if you'd still like to see an energy field. I think that is a neat idea if you can tell me what it should look like or let me know if you just like the big ufo.

Added life counter etc., sound effects...

The big UFO works but perhaps just make that the color cycle object. The land color cycling along with it
is a bit of a distraction but yes a playfiled based ufo is better.

Nice work!

* remove home base color cycling.
* slowed down game in second level.
* added new part of game to shoot down ufo from home base.
* added varied ufo traffic.

more ufos attack base per request!

having some trouble with collision detection though (makes it tough to shoot down ufos but not impossible).

This is really good, it's fun but I didn't play long because it's also pretty hard. In the latest bin, my shots were going through the ships sometimes.

I'm having trouble coming up with a good solution to this. Anyone have any ideas?

Slow down the missiles, and/or double their height.

Try this out. Missile looks like a missile - is slow and glowing. Seems to work well!
