Image Description, by
There has been a lot of advanced graphics IOTD's lately, so I thought I'd
post a little more...not so...advanced one.
This image is taken from a little game that I've done, it's called Alien
The game started out as a little experiment(I'm learning OpenGL) and grew
into this funny little game, so there's a lot of things I would have done
different if I would have amied for a game from the start. As you can see on
the picture it is a simple shoot 'em up and all graphics is rendered using
textured OpenGL quads, the graphics may be extremely simple, but the result
is pretty neat! don't you think? The music and other sounds is played using
the REX library, created by Nathan Davidson, so big aps for him!
Although Alien Attack is a very simple game, it's still a complete game so
go to my webpage
and download it! If you want the source code(comments are in swedish), you
can send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send it to you!
Now, you may think: "what's up with the name! Alien Attack...looks like a
normal spaceship-blowing-up-comets type of game to me". Well, read the story
at my webpage and you'll understand...
