Space Invaders Remake

This rough scene is my own take on the classic arcade game Space Invaders.

Gameplay elements:

-you can move the defending blocks by left clicking and dragging them with the mouse, to form new strategic arrangements, or just to group them when they become isolated.
-you move your ship on two axis using the mouse. as a result, you can dodge between enemy fire and also choose the firing distance(which is important, due to spacing/timing)
-you have limmited ammo
-once you hit the UFO you get an extra life


- i did my best to keep the classic proportions for the ships and the feel of the old game.
-the ship's gears are animated using bones (also, as you are being hit, you will see the rotating gears stopping one by one)
-the menu is added with alpha planes over the background
-the blocks have four lives each - as they loose one life, they become reddish. also, they are not affected by your fire!

  1. Looks cool!

    Work more on the shaders, colors are a bit washed out atm. Boost up the Emit perhaps.

    You've come along way :)

  2. Your CSS for the comments is gay btw...
    as you 'can see'.

  3. thanks, i'll look into it, learning glsl right now
