I'm trying something new.
 
I had this program called Construct 2, a 2D game maker, installed on my laptop for a long time, but I never used it. I decided to try it out.

I've been using this for about 3 days or so (I've trying to figure out how it works :p). So far, I've created a sort of 2D shooter test using Sky Warrior objects and characters.

Try out the game [URL="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/90875920/Sky%20Warrior/index.html"]HERE![/URL]

Let me know what you think! :D

(Note: The player's bullets may change volume weirdly. Not sure why.)

Edit:
Here's some notes about the game from my post on the Construct forum:
[QUOTE]Here's my first attempt at making a shmup. I think it looks pretty good seeing how I've only been using Construct 2 for a couple of days so far.

This is just a test to see if I could make the elements of shmup like bullet spreads, changing backgrounds, destructible bullets, etc.

The spinning ball to the right is called the "Seeker". You can shoot it, but it will not die.

Press 1 to fire a spread of 5 destructable bullets.
Press 2 to fire 2 homing missiles.
Press 3 to fire a spread of 5 indestructable bullets.

(Admittedly, the "3D" Background could have been better animated... :P)[/QUOTE]

BTW Press Space to Fire. I didn't mention that in the post. :p

That's pretty cool.

Do you plan to add a gimmick to the game to make it distinct, or are you just planning on learning the software a bit more before making something big.

I still need time to learn how to use Construct 2. There are some basic things I still need to figure out... :p

As for this game, even though it's just a test, I'll probably keep adding stuff to experiment with it. Maybe I'll discover something over time... :D

(Incidentally, the "3D" background in the game above is actually made of pictures of a map I made in Half Life 2: Episode 2 specifically for this game.)

Nice use of a map.

I never did finish HL2:2.

I kinda wanted to jump straight from 2 to 3, when it came out.

I wonder why they haven't released a new Half Life game yet?

(BTW, I have more animations from Alice in that game above. There are some animations for Revolver Force; Juggler Force, a cut enemy from Sky Warrior 2; and even the GroundRoamer object (I took the wheels off, and it will likely be used as a space battleship).)

Awesome!

This is very cool.
