An exploration into another dimension (literally). My first attempt at 3D API, the whole game (besides audio) is built with Actionscript - ship and enemies are redrawn dynamically every frame, using trig calculations based on the z axis. 2400+ lines of code, includes an online scoreboard. Game took 2 weeks to code.

Arrow keys to move, X to shoot, Z or SPACE to bomb, P to pause.
The further away an enemy is when killed, the higher the score.
5000 for game completion.

Thanks for playing. Hope you enjoy/enjoyed the game. Depending on how well this version does, I may create a Mk II with more variety, powerups, bosses, etc.

Siezure warning

You should try putting a seizure warning on it but it is a pretty cool game


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Can it please be longer than that?

i know this is a scoreboard and this is for competition, but can you make this game longer, i mean i was getting addicted until it said game over, you did not make it to the score board. oh wow, nice job....

Denvish responds:

Well, I don't know if you were watching your CPU usage while you were playing, but there's really no way that I can add more enemies/objects than are in level 8 without risking crashing some peoples' PCs. So I'm kind of limited as to how far I can take this game.

Pretty good game

I loved your overrun games those were good. sucked ass on those lol. But this is pretty good. Big jump. Keep up the good work. That IS the only thing I would think is wrong with this game is where to shoot because...that is a big flaw. Didnt know where to shoot lol. But good job. Keep up the good flash work and really hit it. 2 thumbz up d('.'d)

Denvish responds:

Well... Herd was actually about half the size of this again, in terms of lines of code - so although its appeal may have been more limited than this, it's actually a more complex and deeper game.
As for the shooting problem: it's basically a matter of the player's perception. Some people grasp it straight away, others have problems judging. It's got a lot to do with the fact that you're shooting in 3 dimensions, rather than 2, so there's a bigger margin for error. Changing the way the aiming works would mean completely recoding large chunks of the game - which I might consider if I do make MK II.

Graphics ---- 10/10
The 3d-ness is very good, but the bullets seem to lack life, well they seem flat

Style -------- 10/10
Very well done

Sound ------- 3/10
The sound wasn't very good, well, I could live with it, but it was the same thing over and over etc.

Violence ----- 0/10
No violence, I don't think there is meant to be any...

Interactivity 10/10
Full interactivity, movement up, down etc

Humor ------- 0/10
I don't think there is meant to be any humor

Overall ----- 7/10
I could play this game, if I was a little bored, but not when I have things to do....
