#C64 #SHMUP progress: latest update for my new SHMUP titled SlipStar. This is still all WIP, with some stuff taken from Neutron (until I find time to change all the audio).🙂Oh, and yes, I am having lots of fun with this!😀 pic.twitter.com/YQf2hdWm3I— Sarah Jane Avory (@SarahJaneAvory) May 12, 2019
As she admitted, there is still a month to go before the game is completed, some elements have been taken from Neutron, but they will be replaced during the final release. Other features can be deduced from the short video, in fact we will have: a horizontal scrolling, enemies that attack in waves, power ups for the spaceship. Among the graphic features, the parallax levels are worth mentioning! Sarah remembers 4 levels, but they could be many more. We await further news.
