Here is one of the last updates to 101 Starships !

- "Continue" feature : did you think 101 Starships was too difficult? The game is now divided into 5 stages. If you lose your three lives, you can choose to continue from the stage's beginning, but your score will be reset to 0. You can do this as many times as you want, especially if you want to see the game's ending !
- Final boss : do you have what it takes to destroy it?
- I made some sound effects, even if the game still uses playOK, playCancel and playTick a lot ;)
- Added a kind of ending cutscene.
- The enemies and shots distribution is more even.
- Some other minor changes...

You can download the hex file HERE, the elf file HERE or the source HERE.

The game is almost finished in my opinion, even if I could do some optimization, add sound effects or a boss music... Maybe there are still some bugs though ! I could also try to make the source file more human-readable, as it's quite a mess right now.
Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy the full game !

Nice! The stage indication looks good, and I like the ending cut scene :)
You could easily add the ability save high scores, you can copy/paste it from UFO-Race, it's all in separate functions ;)

Done ! Thanks for the idea, your source files are pretty easy to read indeed ! :)
Now 101 Starships saves your high score to EEPROM and displays it at the beginning of each game. I've updated the .hex and source files.

Maybe I could improve the end screen so it could display a rank (from A+ to D-) depending on player's score. My high score for now is 33 745 but I'm pretty sure it's possible to reach 40 000 pts.

Just made a small update (maybe the last one !).
The game now shows the player's rank when the game ends, from D to A+ and even S !
I also made the game available on my website.

It should be possible to destroy the bullets by shooting at it.

I think that would make the game too easy ^^

Well I don't think it would suit the game well, in my opinion the fun mostly comes from avoiding enemy bullets and destroying as many enemies as you can, before they can shoot ;) Destroying bullets is more adapted to games like Space Invaders, where you can only move on one axis and have to destroy all enemies.

I've been too occupied to pull my GB out at all, but I'll have to give this game a try sometime. Looks good!
