Done with PiDefender
1 min read
I managed to finish PiDefender almost a week in advance after I decided to exclude a lot of features. The last thing I worked on was a giant AOE that kills all enemies. Here’s a gif that shows an older work in progress.
I’m now planning to use #1gamcrunch to create a prototype for my February game. So, expect another blog post on Sunday.
What is PiDfender?
PiDefender is a top-down space shooter. The player controls a cannon by moving the mouse around. The goal is to hold out as long as possible by killing the enemies.
