Current release: 1.01

As I had some free time on my hands today I decided to make a VP/O2 version of The Empire Strikes back.
The game is still very much in progress but I intend to work on it when time permits. just to have a nice little none "shop" project.

I have already installed the game on the forum arcade so you can check it's progress. This just for the people who are interested in it. It does absolutely nothing at the moment.

So go see it every once in a while.  Smiley

Note: if you try to play the game: first click it with your mouse to activate the controls. Its a Flash issue.


Game synopsis:


You defend your base at the planet Hoth against the imperial walkers. You have to prevend that the walkers (AT-AT's ) reach your base. When that happens the game is over.

The walkers will attack in waves. It is your job to destroy each wave. Every wave will contain more walkers and the walkers will speed up as the game progresses.

Of course, your radar will help you in your assignment.

Controls:
Arrow Keys: Left, Right, Up, Down
Space: Fire

Thanks Rafael , yes I took some liberty's. Lips Sealed

But because it is in Flash I decided to go for an VP/O2 look... without it's limitations  Evil

I remember you posted a design for an Ody version somewhere but I can't seem to find it.

Oh well, it will keep me off the streets.

Anyone got any suggestions which classic StarWars games should be "converted" for VP/O2, or at least the Forum's Arcade?

Since her appearance in Leon, it would have to be a hitman master strategy game.
