Not. Hyperbole.

Video unavailable (my computer(s) are not made for recording)
Revision 1 done.

Take note: only has Phase 1 of 5, including secret forms (two) and true final form.
You can guess the sheer ambitiousness of this.

Okay. First. HOLY FUCK THOSE TURRETS. Tone that down man. I could barely move out of the way of the drones before I was covered in spam by those things. Other then that, I think the area limit may be broken, I can't move to the exact bottom of the screen to kill off things/escape drones. Unless that's on purpose anyway. Otherwise this looks pretty fun so far.

Which turrets? There are three types.
If it's the cannon (bottom, attack 1) turrets, yeah those things had nasty spread. It's mostly a matter of balancing macro with micro.
Might modify these to something a little more 'artillery cannon' type.

If it's the autocannon (middle, attacks 2 and 3) turrets, they stop moving the moment they start blasting you. Lead them away, then get out of blasting area.
And no, they are not going to be changed.

If it's the missile (top) turrets, yeah that attack's actually the most troublesome. Had to find a way to get the little ships to bombard: tried homing lasers, too nasty when you die and end up having to dodge 6+ lasers from all directions; tried bullets (now), it becomes a field of death if one can't destroy all drones (and it's near impossible to do so).
Might change these ones.

As for the drones (particularly the elites of attacks 2 and 3), there's usually a way to cheese them.

And that area limit being broken? I need to look into that. Could you suggest a code to fix that?

It's the autocannons I had problems with. Too much of a spread with everything else going on at the same time.

The ACs are meant to be 'area limiters'.
Aim them away from combat, or die.

Might tone their spread size down, though. I have good reason to believe that you're referring to the second attack, what with the frigates and that nasty jet.

Or is it the third, with the missiles and the shrapnel? (Nah, the autocannon ends before any shrapnel even reaches you. The missiles, however, kill them or die.)


Anyways, on the area limit: deliberate. Had to keep the player in the screen at all times, in full sprite.
Tested on the default playership, I don't know on the T-401.

EDIT: also this is too much offtopic, suggest pm?

By the way, a quick tip for those doing TRY files. Saving something with minimum data will give you a smaller .fed size, which is crucial when running TRYs that relies on spawning drones. Of course, it will wipe out all name changes to parts, so you'll probably only want to do that when you're done, or keep two versions of the boss around for testing.

Fair enough. Will take into account on revisions.

Can't release one without having the secret form in tow, though.

Necessary doublepost?


Also, quick note: You can (and in fact should) use Mouse controls. Trust me, it makes the entire phase a lot less annoying.

Could the creator of this set up a time limit for me? I should be able to finally submit due 3rd of March, and I don't think anyone else is going to enter.
