The game is only using 1/3 of the screen?

I agree. I'd also like to see some other gameplay elements, and maybe that saucer could be a little more 2.5d as it's permanently on the same z depth as the player at the moment. Also these 28 levels look basically identical aside from the background picture changing. Fair enough, and I guess it's early days.

Largely it looks as though that's what the game uses, although the visible screen screen is updating each frame for the flying saucer to wizz up and down.

Hats off to the developer for getting something going and for presenting the progress. I can't help but wonder why they didn't do that for the Atari game when there were grave doubts about the game existing. A PR mess at the least.

I once made a Star Wars thing with asteroids along similar lines (obviously you had to avoid/shoot the asteroids). My engine (I wouldn't call it a game) was lame though, good for practice and to show your mates but little else. And I have to say I don't see anything here from RPC that would get a purchase from me as yet.

What isn't clear from the link I posted is whether this game is free or commercial? Does anyone know?

Well, at least he is able to make a game for Amiga, and 4096 colours :-)
Hope they improve quality.
I think his goal is to make commercial games.

I'm sure it will, but don't forget you need to make it clear how rare it is so the letters in 'rare' need to be uppercase, repeat the word twice and put them both in containing asterisks like so...

*RARE* *RARE*


Seriously, the game looks rubbish. It's being developed by RPC Games but at the bottom of the page ( http://www.rpcgames.com.au/Centron3D_Amiga.html ) it says '(c) Copyright Move System'. Are RPC-Games a subsidiary of Move Systems or are they the same company/team?

I like the way it pays no attention to graphic design, game play mechanics nor musical composition. Its like they went out of their way to ignore every rule of good game design.
