Image Description, by Iftime Vali

Here are some images from the first public release of my game project. It is a side-scroller space shooter i'm developing for my school exams.

The 3D models are vertex shaded and the background has parallax scrolling for a realistic speed effect. There are health-bars for the player and for the enemy and 6 weapons to choose from (plasma, 3way-plasma, fire, tesla, rocket and laser beam) and also an old-school hiscore table (3 letter names).

I'm using OpenGL for the rendering, FMod for sound and DevIL for textures/screenshots and my own particle engine that's easy to use and modify.

A gamepad/joystick can also be used for playing and it's by far better than a keyboard! The game can be downloaded from:

Looks great! Where did you get your 3D models and textures?

Looks really nice. Is the moon in the screenshot a 3d model, or just a sprite?

That looks really great, and I love R-Type style games.
Keep up the great work!

I can't connect to the download site, it always gives me an error.

Thanks for all the feedback. And the answers to your questions: -the textures/models are from , 3dcafe and some friends (hya, Karg!). The moon and all the planets are 3d models . And sorry about the site, it's a really bad host and I will upload the site to another one asap.
