Hi,

I proudly announce my next game for devices which have a tilt sensor: G-Invaders. Like Caver it uses the tilt sensor to steer the ship and nav sensor (scroll wheel to shoot missiles/bombs).

If you have ideas, which are not on my todo list, please post them here. Thanks!

(Thanks to hdblog.it for the screenshots!)

Game instructions
- Steer the ship by moving the PocketPC (uses tilt sensor)
- Fire missiles by rotating the "scroll wheel" (aka navsensor) anti clockwise
- Fire bombs by rotating the scroll whell clockwise until the polygon around the ship is closed (screenshots will follow or just try it)
- collect weapon upgrades to get better weapons
- collect shild upgrades to repair your ship
- receive new bombs every 500 points
- receive extra lives every 25 shield upgrades
- receive a helper ship every 10 weapon upgrades
- the helper ship fires and collects by itself...
- if you fire a bomb you won't get points or upgrades for the aliens which are killed by the bomb. you also get -100 points. so use it only if you need to...
- if you fire a missile you get -1 points. so don't fire them blindly.
- Online Highscore List at www.ageye.de
- have fun and respect my work!

Hi,

I proudly announce my next game for the Diamond: G-Invaders. Like Caver it uses the tilt sensor to steer the ship.

I came to the idea as I saw an example on MSDN - so this is just an adapted game, but I will update and extend it soon...

This is just a preview version... That means, there are no features like score, lives, upgrades, etc. If you have ideas, which are not on my todo list, please post them here. Thanks!

View attachment 103880 View attachment 103881

Todo List:
- Count score + Highscore list + Online Highscore list
- Weapon and shield upgrades
- Aliens can shoot
- Ship has more than just one life
- Show ship damage
- Make some levels, more enemies
- Use of the scroll wheel to apply special shields/bombs
- Calibration of tilt sensor

Changelog:
0.1
- First release

Donations so far:
nothing received yet ;)

If you like the game, support it by submitting bugs (just pm me/post them here), by suggesting features or by donating... THANKS

I hope you like it!

New version online

I decided to release the 0.2 version now although I couldn't work through the whole todo list. But I added lots of features which make it more playable than the first version so I think you'll have more fun with it!

There is still no highscore list because the next big step will be the creation of more and better levels. It wouldn't make sense to have highscore now recorded which will not be valid in the next version(s).
Therefore there is also no "Game over" sign, but I think you know when you have no more lives left ;-)

The lives are displayed on the lower right corner, on the top of the lives there is the current damage of the ship displayed... On the left side you can see your current score and how many shots you can make.

Please test it and report me how you like it. If you have any ideas which I don't have on my todo list, post them here, too...
THANK YOU!

And by the way: If someone could make some cool ingame screenshots I would be very glad!
