The controls are LEFT/RIGHT to move left and right and SPACE to fire your weapon. It's got 10 levels, mostly placeholder art and all placeholder sound effects. There will be some music in the final release but it was causing the game to pause between gamestates. There is also a slight delay between the weapon firing and the sound effect sounding so I may have to use something other than SDL_mixer for sound [rolleyes].
Now, I am going into the lengthy process of sprucing up the graphics and getting some nice sound effects for the final release. I have no idea how long this will take me [rolleyes].
While, I'm doing this I will start to think about my next project (a Pac-Man clone according to my original plan but it may be something else) and start getting some real, detailed plans down. However, with uni starting again in about a month's time and having a really busy first term it won't be finished (or maybe even started) by christmas. Oh well...
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the game
