Galaxy Battle

I recently found a game called Galactic Battleground which is 2 vs. 2 mash up of Galaga and Asteroids. I really liked the idea, so I decided to make a similar game, only better ;). For anyone who would like to try, there is a download link below.

Download



Power-ups

EMP Pulse - Stuns opponents for 3 seconds
Reflect Shield -  Protects the ship and reflects all fire for 3 seconds
Spread Shot - Spray 3 bullets at a time for 3 seconds
Double Barrel - Fire 2 bullets for 6 seconds
White Dwarf Missile - Fires a very fast and very strong missile
Force Field - Creates a stationary force field for 5 seconds
?

Random reward - Shoot the alien ship to receive rewards

Looks fun.  Would be a cool game for a cocktail cabinet where you face your opponent. 

Will we be getting a custom cabinet build from you to go with it?   :cheers:

Like where this is headed. Maybe a couple of limited powerups to give players a limited advantage. (Spray gun, rapid fire...)

 :cheers:

Bring Your Own Ship (BYOS)

I need some spaceships to give players some choices. So this is your chance to include your own ship design. Just try to keep the shape of the ship close to the example sprite.

First powerup is done, an emp pulse that will disable the oppenents ships for 3 seconds.

Nice, it's in the game

The emp pulse should not extend over the entire screen. You should be required to be careful when you use it.

Sjaak, I'm curious, back in the day you used XNA to make games. I know that was discontinued, what do you use now?

I now use MonoGame, it's an open source implementation of XNA, with support for Windows 8/10. I converted all my old projects to MonoGame (which just takes a couple of hours) and now they all run with Windows 10.

For this project I'm also using Aether.Physics2D which is a 2D physics engine for MonoGame.

First playable version with some sound, choose from 5 ships and 5 power ups. This is the 1p vs. 1p version, if anyone wants to try 2p vs. 2p, let me know

Download

Hopefully this works.  I'm not much of an artist.

I tried to download the program but my PC is not liking the program.  It thinks it is a virus.  Anybody else running into this?  I'm using ESET.

That's just the copy protection, I've disabled the max. settings to see if that is better.

I'm getting the same result this morning.  Chrome will not let me download it.  I can with Firefox but Windows will not let me run the EXE.

Just click "more info" and then "run anyway".

That's what I do. Chrome warns people about my programs too. You can force it to download anyway.

Sjaak, I am really impressed with how this is going in such a short time. Your pixel/sprite work is good and the powerup selection is fun!
