Sticky Notes Shooter

Unexperimental Shooter: Sticky Notes Shooter (not made of post it™ notes)

Here’s my first Experimental Gameplay Project (v3.0) contribution. The theme was Unexperimental Shooter. Don’t ask me why. I tried to stick to theme to the best of ability, which turned out to be harder than I originally thought it would be. My first try spinned off to the experimental territory faster than cactus makes games. (I’m still working on that more “experimental” game, but it has already passed the 7 day deadline by mile).

Sticky Notes Shooter is a shooter made out of non trademarked stick notes. Basically it’s a low resolution (32 x 24) shooter with a stop motion esque rendering. The other cool part about the game is that it generates space invaders randomly. The algorithm for this was way too fun to write and play around with and it was inspired by Jared Tarbell’s Invader Fractal algorithm.
