Retro space has always kinda scared me but I finally got the courage/drunk enough to dabble. It's supposed to look like one of the generic little fighters on a vertically scrolling shooter, back in the day. Amazing what your imagination does with 5 pixels. I found it worked better the more 'cartoony' it looked.
Anyway, hope you enjoy this little number and remember to write a swear in the high score list if you make it.
POWER UP TIME!!!
Pwr up #1
This one shoots a small steady stream of laser balls "bepbepbepbepbepbepbep".
Pwr up #2
This double barrel cannon shoots ion bolts "FFFFFFSSSZZOOOOOM!....FFFFFFSSSZZOOOOOM!...."
Pwr up #3
"Say hello to my little friend". This puppy practically vaporises anything on the screen "ZAP!"
"Phew! That was a lot of shooting. My thumbs are killing me!"
BONUS LEVEL! Because you completed this page in record time and found all the secrets, you have unlocked a behind the scenes pic of a cockpit design that I abandoned. Way to go champ!
man... it is just me or do all the LEGO greats know each other? I mean, read down to the comments left by Heather and Kelso. everyone knows OF them but the gods of brick all seem to actually know one another... conspiracy... thats what it is... another great build anyway, keep it up...-M.K.
awesome moc, I love the details and power-ups, and reading those sound effects aloud to myself.
And hey, is there any chance you could help me? I want to begin uploading my pics of mocs and need advice about resizing and suggestions as to how I can go about doing that. (my pics are all pretty much 3888x2592, not quite the advised 800x600)
Wow, very nice! I love how clean all of your stuff looks. It's nice and sleek (the studlessness helps), and very swoosh-able. You know, I do not think modern video-games have a bit more than 5 pixles per fighter...
Great job blah blah awesome design blah blah blah....You know this is getting boring, if you keep building perfect stuff like this what am I going to criticize you about? I suggest you clean up your act and build something sup-par so I can give you some ill needed advice.
That's the kind of video games that I played, when I played video games. I heard you can play them on your tv now. I think that would interfere with watchin movies somehow. Nice little ship though, especially in the top view. see ya. garth
It is perfect once again. One of the best color scheme and shape you've made recently ! And I appreciate that is from old video game. The different weapons are a great idea. Good ol' time of the "shoot-them-up" with cute 2D ships ... That was so good !
