Designing Space Defender

I’ve been working on the design of my Breakout clone and I had a few ideas. I think it’s generally a good idea to put your own spin on whatever you create, so rather than just cloning Breakout, I’ll be making a few modifications.

Here’s what I’ve got so far: SPACE DEFENDER!
The Earth is under attack from Asteroids, UFO’s and whatever else I can come up with. You are the only thing in their way. Defend the Earth by deflecting the projectiles until all the enemies are destroyed.

I really like the recent trend for ‘retro’ blocky graphics in indie games, so I think I might try this out. A retro style would also make music and sound effect generation considerably easier (not my forte).

I’ll have some visible progress next week
