Very good game in the way for sure. You know how to produce good colors schemes.
I noticed a nice transparency/blending (?) effects with your big yellow shots, it adds a nice dynamic touch.

That's simply blitting just one plane, easy to replicate. You need to test this with your backgrounds though and take care your palette order works with that.

Hugely inspirational to see how this project has evolved. Kudos for navigating through the many design decisions and keeping the resolve to see the project through to (near) completion

Thanks for your kind words, everybody...

I made a lot of progress over the last few weeks, but also notice that designing levels that are really fun to play isn't the easiest thing..

Will need a couple of playtesters soon...

some notes about the development of Inviyya...

In the beginning, I wanted to start a dev blog here, but my style of development is so unlinear it doesn't make much sense. Sometimes i am just working on palettes and redesigns for a while, and then I code again. Lot of that is super boring shit. Also I had some breaks that lasted for months time.

Over the last two years, I noticed that game dev is a lot of repetition of things you thought you already had taken care of.
But with each redesign of the game, and there were two of them, I usually had to re engineer some other things as well. And that took me a lot of time unfortunately.

Also in the beginning, my ambition was to develop a simple 8 colour scrolling shooter. With a few enemies. One level. So, nothing really special...

But I really was never satisfied with what I had at hand, plus I really loved taking what the Amiga has in its chip sets and experiment A LOT of what could be done with it.

Sometimes I just spent weeks experimenting, or implementing something that I really didn't need in the end, but was fun to try out..

The Amiga is a hard to to tame, but very deep beast.
It's and incredibly nice experience if you are a coder and equally a pixel guy, since you can try out all kinds of weird tricks.


After the biggest scope creep I ever experienced developing a retro game, now I have a 16 color parallaxing SHMUP game with four levels, some extra weapons, Hi Score List and animated enemies that nearly feels (in my opinion) like a commercial game from back in the day..

It's still a long way to go, but I start to see "the exit".

Hopefully you guys will like what I cooked up..

Anyway, I already have some game ideas for the time after "Inviyya", OCS and AGA (got my self a 1200 these days... )
