STAR LANCE ALPHA
Version 1.0.0 released 12/16/2007
Star Lance Alpha was my first real game development. Star Lance Alpha is a 2D scrolling shooter game which pays homage to old coin-op games such as Spy Hunter, Galaxian, and old console games such as River Raid and R-Type.
Star Lance Alpha was developed with DirectX, therefore will need DirectX version 7.0 or later installed on your PC in order to play this game. The minimum requirements are listed in the download's readme file as well, so take a look at that to make sure this game will run on your PC.
Below are some screen shots for Star Lance Alpha.
Star Lance Alpha is a classic-style shoot-em-up in which you pilot one of three different types of space ship through enemy territory, destroying as much as you can with your wide array of weapons and defenses. In each mission, there are 3 check-points to complete. Each check point is followed by a door, which can only be opened with the appropriate code key. Code keys can be picked up during your mission, but following one path may require you to retrace your steps in order to get the code key to open the door to the next check point. Hyperspace gates and hyperspace power-ups help you backtrack to pick up missed keys. Grab one of 24 power-ups to increase your firepower, shields, defenses, or the ability to get other power-ups that are normally inaccessible. At the end of each mission, you must defeat the enemy capitol ship boss. You will need to conserve your ammunition and shields if you want to succeed in your mission!
