I've been meaning to do this for awhile, because I just didn't like the original. When I programmed the parallax scrolling backgrounds, it was mostly in the event that I did a level taking place in an environment like the city. The last background didn't look good scrolling, but this one looks great.
I'm now going to get the Blocky seeking missiles programmed. I think this level will be complete by next week. At that time, I'll simply comment out the controller code until I finish the game levels. The program will still read the controller data, it just won't be used until I can add a screen to configure it.
But I can say that this is shaping up to be the best level so far.
