You Are Now In Space

by Dan C - Competition Entry

This is a collaboration between myself and George Weller, and also we've pinched graphics from Delta on the C64, so it blatantly violates the rules. Fortunately, we're not too bothered about that so we're submitting it anyway :).

We wanted to make a game with simple mechanics combined with intentionally buggy and quirky behaviour that a skilled player can use to get a better score. This is the result. We also made it in the style of a C64 game and added some more bugs and quirky behaviour for laughs.

The basic mechanics are Space Invaders so remember, instead of shooting where the enemies ARE, shoot where they're GOING TO BE :).

If, by some stroke of genius or good fortune, you kill all the enemies in a formation, then a well-known computer-game personality will award you a special bonus.

Controls: Arrow keys to move, X to fire.

Commodore 64! I love the character graphics when it switches from lowercase to uppercase mode -- nice touch.

wonderful. I especially liked the fact that this could maybe have had the potential to be a good clone.
