Space Game v1.5 - Use Homebrew Launcher and install to SD under /wiiu/apps
source code: github.com/vgmoose/space
github release: https://github.com/vgmoose/space/releases/tag/v1.5

Video
Plot
The year is 201X. Hop aboard the H.Y.K.M. interstellar spaceship and defend your precious cargo from the oncoming pirates and naysayers! Use either joystick to move around and dodge enemies, and tap on the screen to fire in the direction of the tap. You are the last hope for the Wii U homebrew scene!

I had a lot of fun making this game and I hope you all enjoy my little generic space shooter homebrew! I love how the homebrew scene is starting to take off.

With or without an IOSU exploit, let's keep having fun! :)

Screenshots

Development
Making this was a bit touch and go... I hope some of what I've worked on can be useful to the homebrew community. I've put a lot of details on the github page's readme, but you can contact me if you need more information.

License
This software is licensed under the MIT license. The source code for 5.5+ is located here, and for HBL here.

Troubleshooting
If you are unable to get the web exploit to work, try wiiubru or self hosting.

More Downloads
Attached below is the older Space Game v1.0, which runs directly in the browser of 5.5.x, before HBL. To play the latest HBL version, use the download at the top of this post.

Nice work ! I will take a closer look at your code, especially your drawing functions as they seem much efficient than mine ! :yay:

Works here with my 5.5.1U console.

Stupid question: How can I shoot? I press every button but I just can't shoot, you need to touch the Screen or something?
Edit: Yes, you need to touch the Screen, incredible work!

Nice little game ! (even if shooting at tempy ;p) Thanks for releasing homebrew and starting releasing other things than loaders.
I'll add it to wiki too.

I thought you used GX2, but I see it's done with pixel drawing.
I thought it would be slow but it seems correct.
size is probably the issue and you can't use GX2 with 5.5.1 ?

edit: oh, and nice to see you added some explanation how you did the game to the readme.

For the sin/cos math, you could also use an array with values, instead of doing math with every cycle ?
