« Previous Projects / Star Fleet _ X-Bomber

Download the Star Fleet _ X-Bomber and Star Fleet the Arcade Game Super Pack, containing all executables, source and music for both projects.


The original Star Fleet game; Star Fleet _ X-Bomber was downloaded about 18,000 times over the course of a year, leaving my Tripod account over-limit on bandwidth most of the time.  It reached 85% popularity on Tucows and was the top Arcade Game on a number of sites, including free-games.com.au.


At first, the idea was to create a single-level game with the Alliance battlecruiser as the boss, taking a few weeks to finish.  Then I wanted to create an asteroid mission and then a gas giant and a nebula.  In the end, the game included the following 9 missions:
1. Recon Fleet
2. Asteroid Field
3. Simetra IV
4. Minefield
5. Transport Fleet
6. The Cloud
7. Outpost
8. The Last Stand
9. Battlecruiser
