Space Game is a small shooter game for the Wii U. It was originally developed for the limited userspace environment, but since has been ported to HBL ELF using dimok's dynamic libs, as well as RPX files using the Wii U Toolchain. It utilizes OSScreen to draw bitmaps to the screen, rather than any graphics library.
It is released under the MIT license.
The program can be launched using the Homebrew Launcher. Simply download the zip from above, and extract the folder into the
sd:/wiiu/apps/spacegame folder. It is also available for download in the Homebrew App Store
How to Play
Play as the space ship to avoid and shoot enemies. Move around the space ship with either joystick or the d-pad. Tap / hold on the gamepad's touch screen to shoot bullets / rapid fire. Move up levels every 5000 points, and get 100 points for killing an enemy, and 10 points every second. Upon dying, a password is received. Entering the password will zero out the score, but allow one to continue where they left off.
