Dbrito sent us a preview shot of a little arcade shooter he's working on entitled Wing Commander Battle Stations.
This is the first public image of a little game I'm creating using Game Maker 5. I call it Wing Commander Battle Stations! Is a vertical shooter. This is an arcade style game from the WC1 era. You fill fly from 5 to 10 levels (not sure the final number) from space to a Kilrathi Base that is launching an attack. I know it is hard to believe that a single hornet can kill a lot of Kilrathi ships and even capital ships, but it supposed to be fun an non realistic.
I took out plenty of capital ships in a Hornet back in my day.. And I've been eagerly awaiting a WC scroller shooter ever since TC made this image a while back.
