Holy hell. That really is the best ship ever!

Love the lights, but when the main weapon opens up ... Speechless. Just glorious ! Cheesy

Here's my submission:

sprite:


It's pretty hardcore stuff. Not sure it meets the "arcadey" theme too well, but it certainly fits the "stupid" theme.


I'll draft up a mission or two and send it over.

It is glorious.     GLORIOUS,    GLORIOUS!

Awesome stuff indeed.

I always want more of your stuff, Erick  Smiley

IDEAS:

Frogger: Fleet of slow, player controlled, frog-shaped ships having to escape through the top of the screen dodging impossibly thick, hurtling asteroid fields running across the field. A team of slow moving alligator-shaped ships hunts yo down.

Bullet Heaven / Hell: A team of UFOs are trying to kill you. They outmanouvre you, but their bullets are slow and easy to dodge (in the singular) but gradually the field fills up with lots of different coloured energy bolts. The only way to win is by continuing to dodge until they all kill each other in the hail of bullets.

I'd like to do a series of missions in which you get to pilot a different Retro Rockit in each mission. The goal will be to fire rockets at the bad 'Aliens from Outer Space in Flying Saucers!' and kill them before they kill you.
