[GAME] Silveredge (version 1.1)

I am very excited to announce the initial release of my 1-year project Silveredge, an original bullet curtain shooter for the PSP.

As this is, essentially, a one-man project, there are limits to how much I can achieve. All of the game resources (sprites, music, sounds, etc) are made by an amateur on his own free time. Please understand that when you don't see giant intricate mechs for bosses ;)

That being said, I am very proud of this game, and I have put a lot of work in polishing it to make the presentation as clean and slick as I can. Perhaps the best demo would be a quick gameplay montage:
Please voice any concerns to my email, or pm me here.

Cheers, and happy gaming,

Really slick game. It'd be nice to be able to disable the analog stick, though. Mine doesn't center, which makes one lose a lot in this game. Cool stuff.

macrofire sounds like it can solve the issue, so I won't worry about adding the option.

i love it! now that i played it a bit it reminded me a lot of fren-ze a ps2 homebrew ^_^ and tohou pc games series
this is seriously good i really like it... i was amazed by little things like settings, the plot, the nice music and sounds effects graphic quality is nice, how the controls are explained and so on
[EDIT] i laughed so hard when ingame hikaru said: i swear, if i ever get out of this plane alive, i'll find that S#/% for brains developer and teach him how to make real bullet curtain games

i just noticed a little bug:
into the wind sounds in the background, it kinda stop for 0.001 seconds before repeating so i hear a weird buzz thru speakers/headphones wich is really annoying

about newer features what about extra challenge mode?
where a boss keep shooting random generated patterns of bullets and cannot be killed in any way... it will be cool to test our skills there, or just practice a bit to avoid bullets ^^ the more time we survive the faster the boss will shoot at us or something like this... and the best time will be saved as hi score

also i saw no power ups... the fighter already shoot a lot of bulltes.. looks like a laser... isn't it too easy like that? also endless missiles? why not making that after killing enemies little orbs came out and they are ammos for missiles launcher, so we need to collect something... i miss to collect orbs while avoiding tons of bullets while trying to keep shooting at enemies XD

Last thing, usually in danmaku shooters the player's weak point is just a little dot, or a tiny square on middle of player's sprite. bullets can touch the rest of your body without killing you. i love that in your game if a bullet touch you anywhere, YOU'RE DEAD. (edit i found out that plane's wings are not a weak point) only for this features i like your game more than kene-psp. i wanted something challenging and this game looks like it.

Again THANKYOU for this amazing game!

[PS] This game is so cool that if you use as icon0 the usual PSP Minis purple square with inside the picture of your jet fighter peoples will think is an official psn game XD

psp crashed while playing this.
and i noticed that cool feature you've added, when a psp crash a blue screen pops out (reminds me of my old windows95) and tell us some useful data, also dump them with x button... awesome XD also i noticed that when we move to the bottom of the screen the green score & life bar become transparent and when the plane move forward fire came out ^^ many small thing makes your game an hi quality homebrew to me ^_^
another thing, i will translate it in italian for you, the text is funny and made me giggle... you can use it in a future release ^^

thanks for the crash report. It doesn't seem like a very game-breaking error since you saw it on the menu screen, but I'll take a look at it.

The blue screen is actually something wololo recommended me to use some time ago. It's not my own code, so I can't take any credit for it. It's certainly useful though.

And oh my gosh, you noticed the silly little things I did like the fading and the fire. When I made those features, I was always thinking "nobody will ever notice this." :lol:

By the way, can you beat this game on hard mode? As a rule, when I was making the levels, I made sure that I could beat easy mode without deaths, and normal mode without continues, and hard mode.. I have beaten every pattern at some point (to make sure it's possible), but I've never actually completed it.
