Fab! Super Cobra style.

Yeah, Super Cobra 2000!

 

The music is awesome and gameplay seems spot on. That sound though... this game sounds fantastic.

 

Looking forward to seeing more of it.

It's kind of a mash up of lots of things and hopefully, in the end, will be it's own spin on things.

 

The two bars at the top are L: (Lifeforce) and F: (Fuel)

 

Fuel will deplete over time, which is why you need to replenish from the fuel dumps (we won't go into why blowing them up gives you more, it just does. Accept it and move on!)

 

The Lifeforce will deplete if you fail to pick up a stranded person, or you kill one. The Lifeforce counter will affect how you can progress, and also your rank at the end of the game when all stages are complete. It's a good idea to pick people up, because that is what gets you credits in the shop at the end of the stages.

 

The other counters are: Score, R (Rescues) B (smartBombs) S (Shields) V (Velocity) and L (Lives)

 

I'll show some more bits and bobs over time. The entire game framework is pretty much done, we're working on content, progression and balance now.

super cobra meets R type? awesome, I will be ready to buy for sure. If some more big bosses and the extra color of the Jag is used this could possibly hold up with the 16 bit golden era of shmups.

That's quite a nice backhanded compliment you have there ;)

Cyrano J, well I guess. Its a buy the way it looks now, but the Jag only has 1 good shmup- Raiden. You're new project looks like it could really kick-ass if mentioned things happened, it would be awesome to have a game stand out like that on the Jag, we may never get Native, but this upcoming title does make me dream a little. Keep it up. :thumbsup:
