[WIP] Old school shoot em up

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have an arcade game in development. The game isn't hosted online anywhere just now but it will be on completion at my arcade playstar.mobi

Here's a few screens.

You can also see a video of the game running on YouTube: 

 

The game is written using vanilla JS. It's a cool project as it's involved creating a level editor that outputs a ton of JSON. The data is stored in a MySQL database and I wrote a web front end for dragging and dropping the entities into place.

Each entity (sprite) has a load of parameters which really warranted the level editor as manipulating data in a text file is a pain!

The resolution of the game is 640 x 960 but scales to the device using CSS vh and vw. 

The artwork is drawn in Photoshop to 320 x 480 and scaled using nearest neighbour on export to present the retro pixelated effect at 200%. 

Hope you guys like the look of it. It'll be done end of June.
