Posted by on

Hello everyone!
Two (or three?) weeks passed, and I'm here to show you what happened in those working weeks once again.

  • I made an itch.io page which you can see here:

  • I also made a gameplay video about my last update:

Now I can almost see the far far away end of the game.

  • I added all the levels to reach the 15th level, which should be the last one (maybe) before the loop. With those levels I added the mk3 type of enemies, whose are an even powerful version of the mk2 ones.
  • I added two bosses in the game (and made a randomization system to change the boss order on every run). You will find the three boss on levels 5,10, and 15. The first new boss is the shooter boss(NB: boss sprites are placeolder at the moment obviously):

shooter boss

And the second new boss is the cocoon boss:

Other minor stuff have been changed/added in the game.

  • The more noticeable are a red flash on the screen when you take damage,

red flasho

  • a cool effect when you enter in the portal and finish the current level,


and some little graphical effects when some powerups is active, so you can better understand what you have, and what is affecting.

The next one or two weeks will be a bit busy with the university, so I do not know how much I'll be able to code. But, as soon I'll have a decent amount of new stuff I'll post an article again.

Meanwhile you can play the demo I released last week here:
