Aaaaaaand a lot of features were done the other day! It was incredible, i cried a little.

NEW FEATURES!
-Menu! Well, it's just a really simple menu with an Options button that does not even work for now, but it looks a lot better and i already know more or less how it will look in the end.
-Different types of weapons! Now, not only life "Fixes" can be spawned, also weapons, wich will be green Fixes. Those have, for now, two weapons, flammenwerfer and blue snake. Those are just silly names i just came up with, but one is basically a short range flamethrower and the toher one leaves a blue trail that can kill the things that touch it. I will rework them with time because they might be unbalanced, specially the snake trail, too weak.
-Did i mention the menu?
-Aaaalmost there for the new arcade arena.
-Built the framework to add weapons quite easily.

FIXES:
-The waves come in a different way, now there are more waves between each boss, and each one needs more enemies destroyed.
-The Purple Boss comes with two soulless purples, wich means they are stronger but don't split in two, just regenerate one.

BUGS:
-Fixed all the bugs i added with all that stuff, i think.

FEATURES:
-A really good musician friend of mine made a simple menu theme, so i will add that later. He is not the same that did the battle music, but those two are my helper musicians.
-I will make the bg more interesting later.

Pics later!

I'll give this a whirl when I'm on my desk top.
BTW the Flammenwerfer, that name kinda sounds familiar...
Quick search, that's German for Flame thrower, so description makes the name sound apt.

Damn... i was so happy. Anyways, looks like i found a game breaking bug related to lag. I don't know if that build has it, though imma try, and if it does not it should have a bug where purples go out of bounds. I really don't know why its happening but i have been trying to fix it for 2 hours and i am too tired to continue, because it's kind of 8 am. So trying tomorrow!

Played it and got to the first boss. It's fun and provides a good level of challenge when those purple guys start spawning in higher numbers. I do have a question though: I noticed that the purple guys didn't immediately start following me, but only when I got close, is that on purpose?
I'm going to need to invest more play time to give good feed back, but I thought that might be a bug.

Ouhh, that is on purpuse, because it's only the first level and  that would totally choke the player easily. Thanks for trying it! d:
I hope you get to the yellow boss, or at least play the arcade mode.

Hahaha, that is actually pretty good, John!

I might start making some hidden characters depending on the name you put at the start, but later. I think in that build you can put GBC for an special TV. In a lot of time i will start asking you how you'd like them if you want. Just for you, people!

bug report!
fullscreen mode, the score/instruction bar is in the middle of the playing field.
fullscreen mode, the edges of the arena arent the actual edges of the arena.
fullscreen mode, powerups sometimes spawn outside of the playing field.
blue lines suck a little bit.
end report

Yep. It's something incredibly weird. Looks like it depends on the computer! In my laptop in runs perfectly, but in my pc screws up. For the moment i suggest to use windowed mode maximized while i look into that. Thanks a lot anyways, Perigrin!

Ohhh, if it was not so obvious i would add few easter eggs of different things here and there... yess.

Well guys, more than showing you a new thing, i want to ask for serious feedback. So until you give me your thumbs up, this won't be a feature!








It's a procedural way of creating a simple, yet weird background. It does not look very good. I don't know, in my opinion i guess it could work. Maybe.

What do you think?

is you laptop screen a 4:3 or a 16:9. My PC screen is 16:9 , that might be it. Also, nice backgrounds. A bit less staticy perhaps, but still an improvement. Also, the blue lines have been redeemed for me, as you can score points posthumously wih them. 21k points  bitches.
