Starsceptre is live !! my second Codea game

Hi, so this game has been almost two years in the making. I’ve been on these boards on and off for help and everyone has been brilliant.

I wanted it share the latest trailer in the rush to finish this game. Hope you like.

The Major

Wow, that is awesome. Love the artwork, the way the ship tilts.

Is it a bullet-hell mechanic, with bullet grazing and so on?

Tell us about the controls. Lots of shots of people tapping their iPads, please tell me it also has an auto fire option! It also looks like it has tilt controls? Is there an option for touch controls too?

Wow, it really has been 2 years already!

It’s interesting how fit and finish always takes waaaaaay longer than getting to the initial proof-of-concept.

Congratulations for sticking it out.

Holy crap, that looks AMAZING!

@Majormorgan Well done, amazing job! Love the retro style graphics and music. Let us know when it’s available on the AppStore!

@Majormorgan I am also making a spaceship game right now, and if anyone were to compare mine to yours side to side, they would delete my game. Yours looks freaking amazing, Great Job!

@Majormorgan that’s the coolest game I’ve seen made in Codea. I remember your early prototypes — and I used to demo them to people to show off Codea because they were so stunning.

This is amazing i hope it will come out soon and be a hit!
And its made in Codea!

That game is fantastic! :o
I’m really impressed with the graphics and artwork! This is definitely one of the best games I’ve seen on Codea! :slight_smile: I can really understand how that took 2 years! :wink:

Beautiful. Fantastic work. Every minute of the time you spent shows in the finished product.

Thank you all for your kind words and support.

Some of you have been on this journey with me as I’ve discovered new ways to code and some of you have created code I could use directly when my tiny mind hasn’t been able to comprehend it. It has all been an amazing and long experience. I hope once its out you love it as much as I do. Will keep you all posted. Thanks again!!!

Looks like 9to5mac did a post on your game, @Majormorgan

Congrats MajorMorgan!

Wow, that is amazing @Simeon - great to see people discuss our game. Thanks!!!

And here’s a little something I released today (not the game yet)

So I’ve almost finished coding. Just one more week to go. I wanted to share my press release with you guys and gals to see what you think.

Nice article but I think the website needs a tweak. Three menu items along the top but not much content in each (and the press release is under “about” rather than say press). A short description of what the game is all about would be good along with a few screen shots.

Game looks great and looking forward to playing it!

Totally @West ! Am on it! Thanks mate

Hey all. So v1.0 of the game is out. To think I thought I only had a week to go to finish it back in April. Too funny…

I’ve written a bit more over in the released for Codea main thread. I’ve had so much help from the forum it’s been incredible. Please read that for details.

I hope you enjoy!

Have some of my American Currency @Majormorgan! It looks good and plays great!
