    And that’s that. It ended up… not as polished as it could have been. As is always the way. I would have liked to have got a variety of weapons and some different aliens in there. As it is, I threw in the smaller enemies literally at the last minute so I don’t really know how difficult it is.

    Working title is now “F equals ma”.

    I wasn’t too happy with the square cave that I had going before, so I’ve replaced it with a randomly generated cave system. Now I just need some reason to explore.

    Spaceman Jimmy has been stranded inside an asteroid! He is quickly discovering how inconvenient zero gravity is.

    Shoot the aliens before they hug you to death! (Disclaimer: death may not actually occur.)

    My cave is very square at the moment. I want to implement some cool per-pixel collision detection on the cave walls, but Box2D won’t let me do that and I’m not going to let myself reimplement a physics engine.

    Making a start

    Just got up; have a vague idea.

    Tentative title: “Space Caves”

    Going to use Flash, probably with a Box2D library.
