Subject: Upcoming Tutorial Series


Star DefenderOk!  After getting everything set up nicely and digging back through my old XNA code, I've decided that I'll be putting together a tutorial series on writing a 2D arcade game.


I've got the game all in working order back from the Beta 2 days and updated it to the XNA 2.  (It runs and everything works, but I need to redo some things to reflect changes to XNA since Beta 2)  I'm working on refactoring it into a more managable form and will then start writing the tutorials for it.  It will take me a couple of weeks go get the first part up, but here is an overview of the game:


  • Side-scrolling "shooter" game, similar to the old Defender and Stargate arcade games

    • Paralax Scrolling backgrounds

    • Multiple independant "enemies"

    • Power-Ups

      • Better ship handling

      • Faster shots

      • Dual cannons

      • Extra Lives

      • Extra Superbombs

    • Score keeping

    • "Waves" (Levels)

    • "Super Bombs" that destroy all enemies on the screen

    • Title-screen vs Gameplay Screen
