Here are the promised shmup. I wanted to do a classical shooter like those I played 30 years ago.
RSG - Thunder force - Gaiares - Aleste - R-type - MSX nemesis games are my inspiration here. Remember the day I bought japanese import gaiares at a little shop here in Malaga. The feelings the first time I played. Never will forget that day. That's the spirit.
At title screen, one button enter the game, other enter the jukebox and options page. Do yourself a favor and put 6 lifes.
Playability is finely tuned (I think) some memorization and things will be easier. There are continues. Ctrl+F1 in emulicious helps a lot! Actually I finish the game with two continues :)
Source code is included although I not feel him finished (i'm bothering with each time less performance issues). Simply, it's my toy. I dont want to stop now. Have to test some ideas with retracing and interrupts, test if can update scroll and tiles every two frames (instead one as it is now) keeping animation. Optimizing some parts of code.
If someone thinks can help with some custom z80 assembly functions, doing profile at emulicious (I cannot... doesn't understand whats really going there), I'll send the code. It would be great!
