Hey, I wanted to 'resurrect' this thread, because the engine has been rewritten from scratch.
I'll start a new thread for my new project 'SpaceGate' but in the meantime here's a taster by means of a picture or two and a video, for anyone (maybe it was just me lol) who was disappointed that this was not finished last year:Gameplay video
There's 5 levels each with its own boss.
Power ups increase your firepower and you can pickup nodes.
Hopefully I will have a finished product quite soon, possibly within the next month..
The next step will be to start converting The Excavator itself into my new engine.
Thanks for the patience of anyone that thought I'd quit for another hobby.
This is my passion and I hope to keep making games for ever
