Shmups are about risks/rewards, about scoring systems, about bullets canceling and other subtleties…
No way! Shoot em ups are all about explosions!

I wasn’t happy with the temp explosions I had, so I implemented a new particle engine in the SHMUP Creator which allow me to spawn several different particles emitters at once: particle universe
It’s working well. It’s a shame the particle editor is a little bit on the buggy side, but as it’s now open source, I hope it will be more stable over time.

So, for the current demo level, I created several explosions :
Small ones:

small explosion

Medium ones:

medium explosion

And huge ones, for the bosses :

huge explosion

Stay tuned!
