Hello everyone.

I would like to talk about a video game I am working on: Target Xplosion.

https://i.imgur.com/WggKcfB.gif

About the game

Target Xplosion is a 2D side-scrolling shooter game based on various video games, such as R-Type, DodonPachi, and Touhou project (東方 Project).
This is my very first shoot'em up, and I am the only developer of this game.


Game System

The score system is entirely based on the combo system.

Shooting an enemy increases your combo value. So you can earn more points when you kill enemies or take a specific bonus item. But be careful! If you get hit or die, you will lose your combo.
The score you will have after completing a level depends on your performance (number of killed enemies, number of deaths, combo value, ...). You can get more information here.

You don't need to be a very good player of any shoot'em up (in particular manic-shooters) to play it. The game was designed to be easy for casual gamers, and hard for hardcore gamers.

Here is the trailer of the alpha version. The game is still in development, and will have a lot of improvements.

Target Xplosion is free, open-source, and is available on Itch.io.
I will be glad to get feedback from you :), so I can improve my game.

Gumichan, did you tough about backgrounds parallax? The BG is running with all scenario elements moving on a same speed. If you use BG parallax, your game will get more dynamic screen movements.

I'm working on it. It was done with the first background. http://bit.ly/2wNdAQf
I'm still working on it in the other backgrounds.


NEW INFO:

I am implementing a kind of dynamic game balancing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_game_difficulty_balancing
Thanks to this system, the game will be able to adapt the difficulty depending on how good/bad is the player.
This feature is experimental. So I think it will be integrated in a beta version.

Basically, the RANK feature that some arcade games have?

The art seems to vary... are you still working on the style?

More or less. But it depends on what arcade games you are thinking about.
I mostly think about taking some parts of what Battle Garegga did, and adding some specific things.

Yes, I am. The art style varies because I didn't make all of the images.
But I am seriously thinking about changing that to get good graphical coherence.

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since the previous release of the game. I worked hard to improve the game after this second alpha release. Finally, the 3rd alpha is out.

New trailer : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydcgwoIwklo

You can check this Devblog in order to know the improvements I've made

The new alpha is available on Itch: https://gumichan01.itch.io/target-xplosion
