Hey, it's missile command time! This uses the excellent libwiisprite for graphics and Sndlib for sound. The background music is Kenny Beltrey - Hydrate, available for free from the Kahvi Collective. The sound effects were made by me spitting on my microphone.

I'm also using Beardface's FreeType With Libwiisprite for FreeType text display. The font I'm using is Ben Nathan's Elements, which is available for free from Urban Fonts.

I try to get some work done on this every day, so releases are pretty quick. Check back often!

Objective

Destroy missiles before they reach the earth and blow up your family!

Status

Current Version

0.5a

  • Fixed a crash bug related to split missiles not being cleaned up properly.
  • Added text, using Beardface's FreeType With Libwiisprite. The font I'm using is Ben Nathan's Elements, which is available for free from Urban Fonts. Beardface, consider yourself attributed!
  • Changed background music to Kenny Beltrey - Hydrate, another Kahvi track, because I was getting tired of listening to the old one over and over.
  • Sped up enemy missile speed by a factor of two.
  • Added an interface for writing level scripts. This is what enables the title screen, game over screen, etc.
  • Moved the file hosting to WarpedFlash's dropbox. Thanks WarpedFlash!
