Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

If you don't check for every collision for every frame of the game then shots pass right through enemies without 'hitting' them, and you end up with an unplayably crap game.

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

Which is the 'last bullet' when you can fire four at once? And why just the 'last bullet'? That doesn't make sense. If they're in different positions, and all the bullets are in different positions, then you need to collision check them all individually to see if they've been shot. It doesn't matter...

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

It still takes time to render them all in each frame of the game. And if they're in different positions they'd each need their own collision detection. Making them 'clones' or 'slaves' to a lead object doesn't really save much processing time. One approach you could take is there are several 'Score-...

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

Unfortunately you can only draw so many sprites without slowing things right down, so freezing them to stay on the screen longer is a bad idea for Speccy shooters. This sort of thing needs more control buttons too. A shooter where you could hold FIRE for a completely different type of shot might be ...

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

Can't you just learn which colour is which weapon? The magenta and yellow power-ups, as well as matching the pilots' suits, match the colour of the Hoon or the KEF-Teddies too. That only leaves the red pick-up, and none of them have red hair. The green pick-up has a skull on it, not a heart, so if y...

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

Just realised that I think the four diagonal shots fired by Heidi's orbiting Hoon are unique to it; the other spread shots don't use the same angles. That means that (like Amy's Bunny-Butt-Shot) I can use a unique graphic. It would have to be small - a simple shape I could sketch in maybe 5x5 pixels...

When it comes to saving the galaxy, you can recruit pilots from all over the world.
It's not a Doctor Who game, they don't all have to come from Sheffield! :lol:

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

The secret is the sauce! Add cinnamon and nutmeg with a pinch of oregano, olive oil and a dash of lemon juice to chopped tomatoes. Warm it up and add the meatballs. It's how they serve it in Kos, while flat-out denying that 400 years of Turkish occupation has in any way influenced Greek cooking! Or ...

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

No, it's more literal (and a bit more daft) than that. It's not from other media. Lucky find of a 'Miya' with a teddy-bear though!!! I did want them to sound like different nationalities. I don't suppose anyone else is going to try? 'Amy' because she 'Aims' in multiple directions (spread fire, turni...
