I have this game that I’m dying to make in to something more than just bloody Space Invaders on a grid. I think I must have been a bit lazy and just fell back in to my default “ooh, create a shooting game” mode.
I initially wanted to launch missiles that careered off down the grid and hit objects in the distance – something like a submarine torpedo style game with battleships crossing the screen. But I don’t know I just found it to be a bit dull.
Perhaps there is a game in there somewhere but for the life of me I cannot identify it.
If any game designers out there can suggest a neat idea for how to use a horizantal shifting grid then please let me know. The only thing I’ll add is that I want to be able to shoot stuff :-)
