Fort Apocalypse with Beers
Looks nice.
Do you plan a 512Kb Chip Ram version ?

Alphaone is doing the game. I just updated the graphics. One of the first versions that he send me was running with 512k+512k but had the old graphics.

I'm honoured I got a name check, just happy something I said kickstarted maybe the start of something.

The game is hard as hell, but its a great start

Ahh the game is not sooo hard if you play a bit and get familiar with the steering.
Atm I keep on creating new levels, a scoring system and maybe levelpasscodes. I must say that programming some kind of game is really fun and a nice job variation from doing sinescrolls and 3D stars. ;-)

Love the game, great fun. Got that "space taxi" feel to it, and a bit of "fort apocalypse".

I'm still struggling with level 3, but finally realized how to get through now.

Tips:

* The copter stops declining altitude when holding left or right direction constant on the joystick, this makes it easier to navigate through the horizontal narrow passages (eg. down to the left on level 2).

* Don't hold joystick down when descending, let the copter go into autorotation downwards to save alco.

Looking forward, even though the demo is insanely hard!
I hope you can find a bit more balance in the level design. Level 2 on the demo is just really frustrating.

That sounds like a vast improvement! Especially for lame players like me

Great work mate.

I'll surely need a Flashtro trainer for that one.

+1 !

I managed to finish the first level, and almost the second.. but guess i have now passed the age where i still had enough patience for such "sensible" games

I found out that my Xbox one gamepad works well on my PC with winUAE
