What is Spectre Detector?

Spectre Detector is a top-down 2D shooter designed to allow anyone to just pick it up and enjoy themselves. It's fast-paced, space shooting action confined to the 16 bit realm of an arcade machine.

On top of being free, Spectre Detector got a MAJOR update!
This update includes:

  • New data system to optimize speed
  • New vector based bullet system to minimize bullet calculations
  • Major performance updates
  • Frame limiter to keep the game at a reasonable speed
  • Explosions!
  • Shield effects!
  • New Updater so you can receive updates more efficiently and conveniently
  • Debug mode and cheat keys (left in from dev. Figured they'd be fun)

This is one of the larger updates to Spectre Detector code-wise. This update is all in preparation for shops and pickups as well as potential MULTIPLAYER! That's right! We are planning a 2 player co-op mode (or competitive) for SD. This will allow you to connect client-client to your friends for insane score and money grinding!

That's it for this update!
Thanks for checking it out!
