I mades a Flash Game. Alpha Wing.
« on: May 28, 2011, 05:55:50 PM »
This will reveal my last name, but it's too cool to ignore.

Click here to play Alpha Wing.

It took me three days to make it with the help of a TA. I figured out how to do the "shoot the alphabet in the correct order or lose points" on my own, and sorta the invincibility timer for when you get hit. Also, shooting the letters in alphabetical order is there because the game is for a class and it had to be educational.

So, what do you think? :)

That was fun. But the only thing I learned was "Stay at the left edge of the screen and fire an constant array of bullets up and down the screen until you win." :P

It is challenging. There seems to be a weird bug that if you hold down space to shoot and hit a letter only halfway across the screen, all of your other shots only seem to go half screen also.

I can't seem to reproduce the bug, red_team. Try the new version that I uploaded and see if you can remake it. The only way I think I could fix that is by creating a cooldown for the bullets. Unfortunately, I don't know the code I'd use to make a cooldown. :/

About when I get past midway through the alphabet, my shots seem to go right through the next letters, not hitting them. This ends up with me losing lives quickly.

I find that the large white dots for stars in the background easily becomes too distracting. Perhaps you could try decreasing the size of the stars.

Yeah, my brother also noted the stars being too distracting. I'll fix that in the future. I'm really appreciating the feedback I'm getting for this game. :)

I fixed the stars. They are smaller now. :)

Edit: And a bunch of nasty bugs. x.x;

Nope, can't reproduce it now. Whatever you did must have fixed it. It's possible that it might have been a weird flash bug too since those types of things are kind of quirky sometimes on linux. I got 100 this time though :)

I'm surprised no one picked on the reference for the game's title. :P

The bullets still go through the letters often. And after a letter has been shot, it removes the image, but sometimes can still hit the spaceship. The collision is just not accurate enough, I think.

Yeah, collision detection is way off. I noticed that if you shoot a letter that is exploding, you still lose 50 points, making it possible to lose 100 points from an incorrect letter. Maybe I'll go a Flash/ActionScript 3.0 community and show them the game and see if I can fix the collision detection.

I'm expecting a really lulzy intro with poor English fed into a Windows voice generator for the game's final version.

Hmm when I saw the title Zero Wing came to mind. :P

Not a bad game though IMO.

Great idea for a game.

I won't comment on bugs since I'm running Linux from a usb stick. As mentioned earlier, the Linux Flash plug-in is not the best. However sometimes letters would overlap each other to the point that you can't destroy the correct letter without hitting the incorrect one at the same time. Is this intended behavior?

I hope you are still working on this project because I think it is nicely done and would love to see a more polished version.
