Phi Fighter
Almost complete. (Needs to be checked for bugs.)

Like a combination of Defender and Stargate in one package.

[Arrow Keys] = Navigate Ship
[Space] = Fire phasors.
[Shift] = Fire "Red Rocket" torpedoes.
[z] = Activate shield
  • = Infrared Scanner
[c] = Inviso Cloack
[v] = Hyperdrive

Joystick/Game controller support available (written into program.)

REMARKS:

Designed as part of a video arcade game cabinet project for use with a mechanical joystick and fire button interface.  It is uploaded to check for bugs that may cause the game to crash, though more often during extended play.

Depending on the operating system, you may need to go to Game Settings to adjust the game screen to twice the 100% scale at full screen or bigger zoom to fit your screen, mainly in Ubuntu and other Linux operating systems.

Defender was one of the hardest games, i ever played when i used to visit the arcades. However, i truly enjoyed this game. Lots of fun. Game play is smooth.Great work.

How do you like the action?  Be sure to try plugging in your favorite game controller.  Did you see how I wrote the game?  One of the goals in coding is crunching data space consumption.  The larger the sprite images the more bytes consumed in memory.  The audio actually makes for the bulk of the bytes of data used up.  But I wrote the game as efficiently as I possibly could.  Yet the Source file nears 2 MB in size.
