Here are some images from the first public release of my game project. It is a side-scroller space shooter i'm developing for my school exams.

The 3D models are vertex shaded and the background has parallax scrolling for a realistic speed effect. There are health-bars for the player and for the enemy and 6 weapons to choose from (plasma, 3way-plasma, fire, tesla, rocket and laser beam) and also an old-school hiscore table (3 letter names).

I'm using OpenGL for the rendering, FMod for sound and DevIL for textures/screenshots and my own particle engine that's easy to use and modify.

A gamepad/joystick can also be used for playing and it's by far better than a keyboard! The game can be downloaded from:
