Dr. Nano – tiny surgeon

You are a microscopic doctor. A hero. A marvel of modern science.

Shrink down to the size of a single cell and enter the bloodstream of your patients.

Destroy the bacteria, and fight the evil cancerous tumor to save the day!

Survive three BOSS BATTLES to get to the final credits.

Written in AS3 for Flash 11 using the Stage3D API.

Tools used:

– FlashDevelop for code editing and compiling.
– A marker and paper for the sprites.
– Photoshop for processing the scanned images.
– A microphone for the background “music”.
– BFXR for the gun and explosions sounds.
– CoolEditPro for sound processing.

Though it goes without saying, I’M IN. My toolchest will include FlashDevelop, BSFXR, Photoshop, CoolEditPro, Flash 11 Stage3d. My basecode for this event is this very simple homemade 2d stage3d sprite engine. No physics, no networking, no real animation apart from sprite movement. Heck, it doesn’t even have joystick support yet. The only thing I like about it is that it is fast and small. I’m also hoping that everyone votes for the best theme of them all: CASTLES IN THE SKY.

Good luck, everyone. Remember: AIM SMALL and PLAN TO HAVE FUN!
