UFO Defender 1.0
« on: July 26, 2012, 02:42:08 am »
original post here

HUZZAH! I am not dead, and I probably will still be making games and such.

Anyways, here is a quick pick-up-and-play shmup that involves aliens, high quality custom graphics and music (in my opinion), and a veritable f***ton of explosions.

It is the year 30 billion, and Earth is being attacked by an insanely immense horde of violently flammable UFO's. Emergency force fields have been erected, but they are weakening by the second. Your job is to destroy as many UFO's as possible before the defenses cave in, and then post your high scores here.

And now for some screenshots:



And now for credit where credit is due:
Michael H. for giving me the idea for the game some years back
Detonation Films for the explosions
James for DSGM of course

All graphics and music are by me.

In the near future, I hope to make bugfixes, and then make a more challenging and in-depth sequel with an upgrade system and tower defense-like wave and auto turret game mechanics. But for now, and then, too, we have this quick and fun score racking explosion-fest.


Enjoy!
I'm not worried about SOPA creating censorship, that will not stand for long. I'm worried that they'll succeed in stopping piracy!

Looks alright, but you might want to state somewhere in your topic what system this is for. ;)

Wow that's great! Will it run on a 3DS though? If so, then do I need to load the file on a SD card or will I need extra softwares? I never ran homebrew stuff before.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

No, they're more like game carts (but they're unofficial). Sadly, many of them are blocked on the 3DS, especially if you have the latest version of the firmware.

IIRC, the developers release a firmware update to the flashcart so it will work... (side note: the normal R4 isn't compatible with 3DS)
Wait, I almost forgot! This looks really nice! If I get a flashcart, it'll be on there.

You can also play it on the computer with No$GBA (look it up).

Dang. I don't think flash carts are sold here where I live. I guess I'll go the No$GBA route, although I have bad memories of that emulator, which forced me to reformat my previous computer due to crashing horribly beyond recovery (incompatible video card, or maybe the one I got on the emu database had malware).

Flashcarts aren't usually in-stores... plus you can get good prices online anyway. I've heard that the R4 isn't 3DS compatible, although the R4i Gold is...

It usually takes weeks to get something shipped here online, though (usually close to one month) D:

Is there a way to play homebrew DS games on a SD card for the 3DS?

Sorry to hear. I guess for now I'll rely on the emulator in VirtualPC.
