The Game
Galaxoid is a retro space shooter based on Galaxian and Space Invaders type games of the 80's. In Galaxoid you have 5 distinct enemy types. Each enemy type has different behavior characteristics such as; kill shots till death, how long enemy stays in group before breaking out and charging, breakout movement speed, weapon shot chance, max group score, max breakout score. There is also a Boss for every enemy type. As the player you have 5 health points before death. There are health bonuses for replenishment scattered throughout the game. There is also a temporary laser weapon upgrade. Once acquired the laser weapon upgrade can be activated and will kill any normal enemy in its path instantly. As for Bosses, the laser weapon upgrade will do much more damage than your normal weapon. You only have three at a time, but these laser weapon upgrades are also scattered throughout the game. Your points are calculated based on max enemy score and your shot percentage. After every boss battle you will get a bonus based on; breakout enemies killed, shot accuracy, boss level, life level.

Development
I am developing Galaxoid using an 2D Alpha framework called Futile written by @MattRix. This is a code-centric framework that uses the Unity Game Engine. I originally started working on this game using Gosu/Chingu Ruby game library but quickly realized the performance limitations as well as no support for IOS. This is my first game and I hope to release on IOS by the end of the year. Futile is still pretty new and changing, but its a great framework especially if you are more comfortable with the coding side of Unity.

The main story of Galaxoid
The stage has been set, you are destined to die, but you must exterminate as many Galaxites as you possibly can before you perish. This will seal your place in time. Will you be remembered, or will your name never been seen. Its up to you.
