And that’s that. It ended up… not as polished as it could have been. As is always the way. I would have liked to have got a variety of weapons and some different aliens in there. As it is, I threw in the smaller enemies literally at the last minute so I don’t really know how difficult it is.

Working title is now “F equals ma”.

I wasn’t too happy with the square cave that I had going before, so I’ve replaced it with a randomly generated cave system. Now I just need some reason to explore.

My cave is very square at the moment. I want to implement some cool per-pixel collision detection on the cave walls, but Box2D won’t let me do that and I’m not going to let myself reimplement a physics engine.

Just got up; have a vague idea.

Tentative title: “Space Caves”

Going to use Flash, probably with a Box2D library.
