Mechanically and resolution-wise, this really reminds me of starblazer for the Apple II (early ’80s). Watching the video of that play makes me really want to do a similar-feeling clone of starblazer and post it. I may need to fire up an apple II emulator and see how hard that sounds.
Happy to see people inspired; if you do that and it’s FOSS, please share it here or contact me so I can try it myself :)
Something between Nokia’s Space Impact (Nokia S40 and older ARM7TDMI devices like 3310) and Zybex (Atari XL/XE)
I really like it!
Thanks :) I’m happy to see that it’s conjuring memories in people of beloved space shooters past!
Thank you Pistos, I’ve merged the source code repository story submission in to story dwugf8, the release announcement.
