Fire Arrow Plus is out on Steam.
...and also on itch.io

Yeah, it took my slow ass waaaaay too long for a 'quick and easy' caravan style shmup; but at least the damn thing is finally finished. -_-

Good to hear. :D Kaiser talked me into toning the difficulty ramp down, I was worried it had lost it's fangs somewhat.

(then again, you know how it is when you work on something awhile...)

I have a list of projects to potentially finish next after Super XYX, that's one of them. I may hold a vote to decide which. Basically it's:

Category 1 (projects furthest along and most likely to finish without major hassles)

    > Draconyx
    > Megatank (v2)
    > Laser Carrot Attack
    > Thrust N Dodge

Category 2 (projects well along but require significant challenges to be overcome)

    > ZPF
    > Flying V
    > Last Chance

Category 3 (projects still at proof of concept level)

    > Aebro
    > (unnamed Space Harrier-like thing)
    > (unnamed RPG)
    > Megatank 2

Made a thing for a month-long game jam.
PPP: Single screen tank shooter with elements of Paratrooper and some more random stuff like Burgertime (since one of the suggested themes for the jam was 'burgers')

It's not too dissimilar to my other attempt at a shmup of this simplicity - tentatively called 'One Shot." I've really gained an appreciation for this style recently.

True; but banging this out in one month was definitely more grueling than my usual process. The added freedom of being able to throw anything that comes to mind into the pot certainly was great, really made me feel like I was working on a modern Atari 2600 title. :D

That kinda limits things if/when I decide to make it into a 'full' game; but oh well.
