Alien Space Retro: coming soon

Hi everyone,

I'd like to announce Alien Space Retro, which is currently in development and should be out soon, as in around a month from now. Of course, it depends on how things go. =)

Alien Space Retro is a new game based on Alien Space, but with all new graphics inspired by games like the classic Asteroids. The game will feature all the campaign levels from Alien Space, the regular survival level, and a new survival mode... and possibly other things. Keep an eye on this thread for more information and new screenshots.

Here's the first screenshot of the game. This isnt final yet, but should give you a good idea of the new HUD and how the game generally looks.



Feel free to post here with comments and suggestions. Since the game is still in development any good ideas will be seriously considered. I should have more screenshots and hopefully gameplay videos soon. Also, check out the Facebook page for more information about the game:

Looks retrolicious! Can't wait.

I'm a big fan of the original Alien Space and due to some kinda time-warp wormhole, I'm trapped in 1983 and I'm 10 years old all over again - if only!

This is looking really good. I think the retro graphics will really work for this type of game.

I love all things retro and Asteroids so this looks like a no brainer for me. I take it the control method is the two circles at the bottom of the screen? That might take some getting used to after being addicted to Solar Minotaur but I'm sure I'l manage! Good luck with this.

Yes that's correct, the controls are the standard dual-stick, move with left and shoot with right.
