UPDATE: Decided to change the game's title as well as its theme.

Space Cabrón is a procedurally generated shmup that revolves around two main mechanics: Reflecting bullets and hacking enemies to grow your personal robot chicken drone army.

Fight the genetically modified nazi chickens and cleanse outer space of evil.

Looking good, how long have you worked on it to get to the current state?

Here's a gif showing the first upgrades added to the game.


Arms - the way you shoot, damage, projectile size; (left arm != right arm)
Head - the speed you can hack enemies (haven't shown this one here yet);
Body - speed, amount of time your shield can stay enabled, shield cooldown;

And there's one kind of extra upgrade that will not replate any parts of the robot, but will add to it. I'm thinking rocket launchers, stuff like that.

Thanks a lot.

Never really played Robotrek, but the upgrade system seems similar to the one I'm trying to achieve. Except apparently in Robotrek you also invent stuff.

Oh, stop it you~~~

Here's a gif about "hacking". The little pink square is the drone. I'm thinking they should be upgradeable in some way, I'm still deciding.

Resistant enemies:



They only receive damage from reflected projectiles. Reflecting projectiles, as of now, are possible through activating your shield moments earlier of being hit. It's a fairly simple system so far, giving the player a 400ms window after the shield's activation.

If your shield hits a projectile within 400 milliseconds of it being activated, the projectile is reflected.

(Ignore the lack of player hitboxes).

Seriously thinking about toying with networking and implement multiplayer co-op. It's a bit of a stretch, but there's people telling me it's not that hard to do it in Unity. I'll make it a goal.

Finished the wave generation system. Basically, the game is now procedurally generated based on progress.

I've also finished drone damage, they destroy enemy bullets on which they collide, but take damage. Visually they have two states: Normal and damaged;

Damaged means your current drone has less than or 30% health.
They take about 10 hits to be destroyed, but I might make it vary, I have to test it before.

Nothing visual unfortunately.  Sad

Made some text showing the shield's cooldown.


...And also made some improvements on enemy generation, but I have no way of really showing it.  Sad

Made a new enemy! He has these two shooting patterns. I'll wrap my head around giving him a face later.

Thanks a lot! I'm thinking of ways of expanding it, probably make it possible to control the direction you're going to send waves, I don't really know. The problem with this is that the game would get incredibly hard to play on the keyboard.

//////

Made some lazy explosions. I'll change them when I can, I was just getting tired of the bullets just disappearing. Probably will do the same with enemies dying.

Same lazy explosions on enemies dying.


Also did some minor adjustments on enemy generation. Been mostly toying around with some ideas.

Here's an idea: The amount of drones you have, is actually your amount of lives.
Thinking of making a little positronic brain moving to the closest drone and then the drone becoming the robot.

The gif is just to show how it will happen in a very basic way, if I decide to ever go with this idea.
Instead of the robot just blinking, there would be a reconstruction animation.

Drones! Their appearance is kinda silly.


Aaaand... death! This strange little thing is supposed to be a tiny positronic brain! It always lerps to the closest drone.
