I spent the evening working on a new mini-game for Solipsius, and the result is a neat little game I like to call Space Offenders. The game itself is like reverse-Arkanoid meets Space Invaders (hence the title). I’m pretty happy with it since it only took one evening to put together and it’s functional and somewhat fun. There are a few buggy quirks, but nothing that I’m going to lose any sleep over if they aren’t fixed (after all, it is just a small part of a larger game). I did consider adding some power-ups in, but decided that they would probably take away from the challenge and old-school simplicity, so I’m leaving them out for now.
You can try out this mini-game here.
