Unfortunately, I've found that if they go much slower, it looks like the game is lagging because of the low-ish resolution.

Here's an actual video of World 4 in action:



With sounds and shaking effects in, the arc coil feels a lot meatier now, which is good.

I've also tweaked the actual attaching mechanic a little: instead of having to ram directly into the enemies, which was kind of finicky and annoying, they'll automatically be grabbed when they're within a small radius of your ship. To make it look a little nicer, I put a small electrical arc effect leading to each attachment, too. Now it feels really nice and swishy when you pick them up, and also leads to some cool sword-swinging action, which you can see in the video.

I'll be sure to send you guys a copy when I get to the beta testing phase. :)

Wow, it's been a while. Exam season was long, as was pre-exam season...

Anyway, I'm back, and I have some gifs of the next boss in progress!
This the boss of world 4, which is entirely based on close-range weaponry. So, it only seems appropriate to have the boss be a giant sword-wielding ninja ship.

Here are two of its attack sequences:

That second sequence is absolutely beautiful, but I think it needs to be a little bit more random. At least from that .gif, it seems to favor lines drawn around the lower left-hand and upper right-hand corners.

I think he should move faster. It seems kind of predictable and easy to dodge, but it's supposed to be a fast dude, right?
Or at the least move faster as his health decreases.

Urch:
It spreads out a little more than that. If I were to show you a few different clips, they'd all end up in different places. That said, it does slightly favour corners because of how the algorithm is implemented, and that means that there's often a large space left empty. I'll see if I can think of a better way to spread them out.

Miggles:
I've been tweaking the speed upward as a go, but yeah, it might still be too slow. I'm at this kind of awkward stage where I'm not quite ready to beta test, so I have no idea if things are genuinely too easy or just easy because I've been working on the game for so long. So, that kind of thing will probably be changed a bit (or a lot?) once I do some testing.
Good idea with speeding up as the boss loses health, though. I might just implement that.

I'm hoping to start beta testing this summer. It'll probably be a closed beta, but I'd like to get a fair number of people testing it (10-20?). So yeah, you guys are definitely on that list.

You'd better count me in.

The game looks like it's coming along beautifully, TLB.

I will test the ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ out of this game. None of its orifices will work the same after I'm done playtesting.
