SpaceShooty 1.0 'Tis another Space Invaders clone, with a new idea worked in: The enemies fall on you when hit, and you need to avoid them. I just finished version 1.0, which fixed several bugs and added actual art (Not programmer art) All the controls, etc is addressed in README.txt. Unzip the file anywhere, it makes it's own folder. Size: 109 KB. www.xnull.net/projects.php?project=spaceshooty

Well, Norton seems to think his binaries and resources are clean.. and my computer hasn't blown up yet. Screenshots would be nice.

Commentary? Well.. lots of things I could say, but because it's an in-progress work, I'd like to express my distaste for having the score and lives in the titlebar. Get some nice bitmapped fonts (or generate some with the wgl functionality) and stick those in-game. This will also get rid of problems regarding fullscreen early on.

Still leaves open the possibility of newer virii, or trojans.

That's good. I found out my old computer had the MBS virus on it some 3 years after I most likely aquired it (through floppy sharing with an old friend).

Ok well I've found a bug, sometimes when you kill an airplane, even if it's dead, it still shoots missiles ( so basically you see nothing and then there are some missiles shooted just like if it was alive )


Thanks, but that was already addressed in the readme and main comment in the CPP file. I'd like to do a Linux port, but compiling with G++ and running it results in an interesting segfault, which I'm too lazy to figure out at the moment.

By the way, I'm NOT trying to put a damn virus on your computer. I do a virus scan every week and update Norton regularly, and everything you see on my site is hosted from my very own Slackware Linux server.

Anyway, thanks for the input. I put up a screenie on my site, and I'll look into drawing the score/lives in the corner as opposed to in the title bar.
