I revamped the game engine and came up with a side scrolling game which I called Super Copter. Super Copter really pushed me for the design since I was determined to maintain my “hit the fire button as much as you want” ethos on design. I just thought the entire thing was a bit naff and was struggling to get excited about designing military sprites. It’s just not me.
So finally with the Easter break upon us I decided to allocate some time to the project to give it a final push to completion.
I’m pleased to say that the design is fixed and the style is coming along just nice. For the game’s design I have “borrowed” from Jeff Minter and one of my favourite movies.
I thought I would offer a visual clue with the screenshot above. It is of my latest Photoshop session and you can see I am in the process of assembling and animating a key sprite.
