We decided to recreate Asteroids, with a twist (based on the theme of “throwback,” we called it “backeroids”). You basically will have a super beam / bomb / something that puts things in "retro’ mode, which makes enemies weaker, etc.
@AbrarSyed and @ala, you guys will want to use Helix for this. Instructions to set it up:
git clone https://github.com/nightblade9/helix
haxelib dev helix .
This will allow you to use
HelixSprite, etc. which have fluent API calls that make things easy to use – similar to what we used in JS last time @ala
Let me know if you guys have any questions/concerns.
I also committed a bare-bones generated project and resized it to 800x450 (HD aspect ratio, max width for Kongregate). I also updated it to display a placeholder ship and rotate to the arrow keys.
