Scrolling Shooter Challenge - Deep Sea Encounter

Recommended Posts

(UPDATE!) Make sure you pick up version 1.1 this is much easier and has a difficulty setting!  Thanks!

This is my entry for the Scrolling Shooter Challenge - Deep Sea Encounter (name changed from Alpha Whisper3)

Story - Creatures are invading the Earth from the sea bed and your submarine is the only ship available to challenge them.  Unfortunately you have no weapons!  Only your shield can protect you. Make your way through waves of enemies and defeat the boss!

Controls - Arrow keys - move.  Ctrl - Shield.  Escape - quit game.  You can also use a control pad.

Use your shield to bounce bullets back towards the enemies.  Be careful though as you any have a limited shield charge.  If your shield runs out, release the shield button to recharge.  Collect Red power-ups to increase your speed.  Collect Blue power-ups to increase your shield power.

Tips - 

On the first level, head towards the middle in between the fish when they split.  This will allow you to collect the power up.

Getting close to enemies before they fire is an easy way to rebound their shots but make sure you have enough shield available!

Colliding with enemies or the landscape will destroy your sub regardless of whether the shield is active.

Collect red and blue power ups as much as possible they will really help.

If you find it too difficult try using a gamepad to control the sub instead.

Cheat Mode - press 'R' to jump to the next level!

I can appreciate the endless lives here. :) At first I though it would be better if you continued from the last death location but the way you have it is better. Nicely done. There is replay value here because I'm now curious what is after the mine field :D

Thanks, I may have fallen into the developer trap of making it too difficult, if I have time I would like to introduce an 'easy' mode where the enemies don't fire as quickly.

From the OP,

"Sorry, we can't show this content because you do not have permission to see it."

Why? How many buttons do I have to click to get full permissions to this group???

When I go directly to the project page it shows up but says 'project hidden' in the top right corner: projects/1366-deep-sea-encounter/

It now shows as 'you do not have permission' on the link in the original post, for me also.

This is a recent change. I now see the permission notice as well, when earlier the project page link was visible. I think the OP is busy with the polish cloth.

umm, pretty sure it's just one. Going in the other direction appears just as easy.

When I signed up for this group I was not getting notifications. So I had to apply for that. I was wondering if there was something else I had to do.

"Going in the other direction appears just as easy." :(

Also, shouldn't the messages in the thread show on my front page?? EDIT: I'm not sure but it looks like the front page isn't showing recent posts as it does from time to time
