All right, it's taken a while, but finally a first version of my entry for the MSXDev this year is finished. The game is called "The Menace from Triton"!

You can see a quick video in youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iCriF_JaeU

And, of course, the game is open source and source/rom can be downloaded from GitHub: https://github.com/santiontanon/triton

I hope it does not have too many bugs haha ;)

Very cool, looks like a mixture of Daiva and Nemesis. :-)

Another SHMUP! And it looks good!
Unfortunatelly, Github isn´t working so I can´t add the game right now. I´ll have another look this afternoon.
If in the meantime you could send a copy of the .rom to me ;-)

Did a quick play, looks good, with lots of references to Nemesis. Did I see some Lemmings digging holes in some levels?

One remark from my side would be that a Game Over melody is missing. When you die, you get the message and that's it.

Thanks everyone!! I hope the controls are ok (it's tricky at the beginning to learn how to balance "holding space" for moving slower/using special and fire normally). And also, make sure you remember to "equip" the upgrades you buy.

About the "game over" music, good point! I didn't add one as "game over" is more of a choice in this game (as dying in a mission just resets that one mission, but you can keep playing). But I make a note of that, and I might add one in an update. I have about 1KB left of space in the 48KB ROM still, so, there's room for some additions still Smile

And hahaha, it wasn't my intention to make that a Lemming, but now that you say it, I should have! (it moves fast like a Lemming, just because the animations are limited to 4 frames due to how the engine works, so, I didn't have much choice, haha)

I played it a bit… It’s very challenging! Smile

Also I notice that the levels are randomly generated!
