Galaxy Forces V2


A single and multiplayer 2D space shooter game. Each player is in control of a ship. The goal is to kill everything to get the best score (dogfight), or race against the clock and your opponents to get the fastest time (race). There is also a mode where the players compete to transport cargo (mission), and where they cooperate (mission_coop).

There are more than 50 official levels, and a map-editor is included so you can create your own. Also online Hiscores are available.

The game is inspired by Gravity Force on the Amiga, and it could be considered a Gravity Force clone with more features.

The game is quite fun, but it still misses some things. It was put on sourceforge so that others may join and help make it better, the project is public domain.

There is an experimental AI player included in the game now and a new AI is being implemented. Also some of the graphics and sounds needs to be improved and extended (more decoration tiles).

But anything anyone feels they want to contribute with is welcome.

The game, server and editor have recently been ported to Linux and Mac.

Here are some info about how certain elements in the game are implemented (the AI for example).

Game instructions


Start the program

Multiple instances of the game may be started on the same machine for testing.
The server (Server.exe) need only be run if you want a stand alone server.

Firewall ports

TCP port 1999 needs to be forwarded in your firewall/router to be able to host games and have other players join you.

Then login as that user, or select cancel to just play directly.

You can enter 127.0.0.1 to connect to your own server.

Rules

Collect as much points as possible or get the fastest time on the racetracks.
Your ship is fragile; it can only be hit by one bullet!
Everyone is free from there own bullets.
You will die if you hit anything that is not black, both parts of the map and enemies.
You are able to land on the grey landing zones if you are careful and keep the velocity, angle and position of your ship right.
You don't crash with things on the landing zones.

Mission specific

You finish a mission level by transporting all cargo (small packages on landing zones) to a home base (landing zone with a warehouse). If you die, any loaded cargo is re-spawned.
You have fuel in your tank to use the thrusters for 60 seconds. If you run out of fuel, you will probably die. You refuel automatically on home bases.
In mission coop levels you cooperate to transport the cargo, and all players get the same combined score (but only the master get to send in a hiscore).

Score

Collision with the wall-10
Killed by computer enemy-10
Collision with opponent0
Shot by opponent0
You shot opponent25 (only dogfight)
You shot a computer enemyDepends of enemy type
Cargo deliveredDepends on the cargo weight, the ship can carry max 50 (or 3 units)

Every life left when the level ends gives 50 points. The score is also based on the time taken until the level is complete... The time taken gives a minus to the score (seconds/2).
