Old browser-based game I started hacking on. I might like to get back to it.
Wanted to do something like a cross between Star Raiders, Star Trek, Bosconian. Top-down, no-stick shooter. Pilot the ship around and it auto-targets swarming baddies.
You adjust weapons settings to fit current enemies - e.g. fast short range lasers for close point defense, single long-range slow-charge sniper laser for big enemies.
Also add in special abilities with cooldowns. Maybe some shield / energy management, Maybe also plot courses. Initial thought for this was to be all a touch game that would work on phones.
Had a notion of setting up some kind of sim element where there are resources and infrastructure and production - enemies exploit things in various sectors to build ships. You can take out their infrastructure and deploy your own to start generating creeps / fodder of your own to push back against the enemy.
Lots of ideas, little implementation.
