Ok time for a first progress report. The game I’ve decided to make is a one-button-sidescroller with automatic shooting. Sort of. You play as an probe with automatic defense mechanisms. All you can do is increase your vertical thrusters to prevent from falling into the ground. Picking up powerups adds to your armor or increases your turret power. The goal in each level is to make it to end without being shot down by enemys or flying into the wall.

I’ve got most of the core stuff done. Win/lose state and screens. Collisions, upgrade pickup and loss (if you fly into an enemy). Next up is adding some more upgrades and another enemy type as well as some fine tuning. After that its off to creating a few levels and after that I’ll add sound. So far I’m pretty happy with what I got done in 12 hours. :)
