New game: Gunship

Hi,

recently finished my new game "Gunship". Its a railway shooter which is a very uncommon genre for the Gameboy. Let me know what you think!

Nice! But would be better if you could destroy/damage trees, trucks, etc. smile Played it only for a while but I'll give it some more time later.

Thanks. Yes, I wanted to add more interaction with the background but I run out of VRAM.

CGB = twice the VRAM = profit! Not to mention the colors. smile

OK, so I've saved the world as promised. Some notes I've had meanwhile:
- baddies running and shooting from side to side would be nice
- some NPCs and penalty when you shoot them or bonus when you prevent killing them by baddies
- prisoners to rescue, get some bonus/badge/etc.
- grenades are too powerful in end parts?
- gameplay feels slow after a while maybe add some speed up in end parts?

Overall it's so much better than the usual GBDK stuff I see. And extra points for the music and sfx!

Re: New game: Gunship

Thanks for your great feedback! The game seems to be too easy for you smile

I know GBC has double amount of VRAM, colors and also better sprite priority handling. In my childhood however I had a classic Gameboy and thats the reason why I only develop Gameboy classic games.

Great game. Super addictive. I think it would be cool to add a gun (which rotates in the direction you target) at the bottom, and maybe a hand grenade as the "smart bomb"

Good job! I like the style, the game looks great and very much like an original DMG game.

Yes, I did. It matches the military vibe of the game very well. Also liked the graphics. Your games are getting better every time. smile

Yes, actually I am. But I have only very little spare time (and work in asm), so I won't be able to show anything soon. If there's anything to announce, I'll post it here.
