8 bit Invasion
Save the world from the invasion of the coin-op 8 bit aliens in this first person shooter. The coin-op world has had enough and is seeking revenge for the deaths of millions of sprites at the hands of merciless coin-op players. You are armed with an assault rifle, heavy machine gun and rocket launcher. Destroy each wave of aliens, collect medi-packs and ammo boxes to carry on the fight. Good luck! This game is in development, more levels are being added, with large mother ships and more. This game unintentionally resembles the movie Pixels, perhaps it was a subconscious inspiration at the time but nevertheless I originally created this project as a R&D effort. I wanted to see what would happen with all the blocks building up over a long battle, eventually covering the battlefield and creating a mountain of blocks. As the game started to take shape I decided I wanted everything on the map to be destructible and as a result you can pretty much blow everything up with the exception of the concrete guard house and the old building. To give credit where credit is due, this game would be a whole lot less fun without the excellent Detonator Explosion Framework by Ben Throop.
