Fun times ahead. I’m raiding my old Game Maker projects for things that have been lost to the sands of internety time or just plain don’t work on Vista. Bumper Ball may be gone forever, but I still have a few finished projects hanging around to flesh out the games page a touch.
The first game proper hitting you all in the face? Draliens.
Exciting! All that… lack of color there.
Game is simple. Shoot aliens with lasers of their same color. you start just dealing with red and green, but if you can survive long enough suddenly you’ll be dealing with four colors of madness, motherships, and all manner of power-ups (and downs) helping you slaughter the alien waves, all while trying your best not to obliterate Earth’s shields, allowing a massive wave of enemies to rain down. Missing a foe results in the ground rising you closer and closer to the ceiling, giving you less time to react and putting you at more risk of being raised beyond the top of the screen and instantly destroyed.
I chose to keep the game pretty much as it’s always been. I’ll be doing this with all the games that go up, though I presently don’t know what all I can salvage just yet. Give it time! If you’re up for giving it a shot, have at it below, or hit the game up on Yoyo. And feel free to use the post rating system and comments to tell me what you think of the thing, too, as I’m considering giving it a much more proper sequel…
