Floppy disk [factory] Project-Xi (iPhone) (inspired by the Team 17 classic!)

Hi all,

I am starting work on a new iPhone game inspired by the classic Amiga game Project-X (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project-X)... currently simply entitled "Project-Xi" or "Project-i" (inventive I know ).

I will be basing the design around the original Amiga game (not the more recent Playstation sequel, X2).

This will not be a port of the original game (I doubt Team 17 would approve), It will instead take inspiration from one of my favourite Amiga shmups (one of my favourite shmups of all time come to think of it). Imagine the original Project-X, but with much enhanced graphics and features (have some great ideas for re-workinng the in between level special stages; whereby you had to navigate narrow tunnels at an ever increasing speed)...

Anyway, I am much in the initial planning stages at the moment, so any input from you guys (and anyone else you know who might be interested) would be great!

I will keep this thread updated regularly!

BTW, if I have posted this thread in the wrong forum, please can one of you admin-y types move it to the most appropriate place (I did spend a while searching through the forums and thought this was most appropriate... but I am usually wrong!).

Cheers,
T

Great, but I think iphone is not very good gaming device for action games, touch pad isnt really good controller for action.
(I own 3G)

I wouldn't bother with X2, it's really not up to much. It's far far too difficult, to the extent it makes the original look like a kids' game.

Graham, you have to play Japanese version of X2, is much better ballanced. The EU version is practically unplayable

Game update #01 (10/01/2010)

Hi all,

Well, I have been locked in the study all day long today, attempting to get some solid concept artwork and initial sprite work down... here are the results (see below images)!

Still very early days... but determined to do the original justice!

While Team-17 may not give approval. The musician Alistair Brimble is freelance. He would sell you some tunes perhaps even based on the original for your game.

Find him on Facebook or MSN

Thanks for the tip, might try and get in touch! Have been working hard on the game, basic intro, title screens and have a controllable player ship sprite flying around... Have spent this weekend working on revamping my personal website to go along with the game... You can check it out (in mockup form) at: http://timloram.me.uk

Cheers all!
