Space Raiders 7800 Homebrew Video

I’m not quite ready to share the binary yet, but Space Raiders is a game I started two weeks ago. I was thinking I could use it as the basis for a set of beginner tutorials on 7800 Basic.   It started ballooning, and now and it is about 70% complete. In this one I played with pallet manipulation so get some fades and with animated sprites to simulate scaling.  Also, all levels formations are created with bits from random numbers copied from the right side to the left the formations look symmetrical.   I’m fairly certain this will be my actual first “finished” 7800 homebrew, and I still might do the tutorials if there is any interest.  My other idea is to add this game to “Last Stand” and “Into The Void” and make a multi-game “space game pack” or even something like Gorf (Forf/Vorf?).

Here is a video:

Again, binaries soon, but not until I work-out power-ups, proper leveling, pokey music and high score support and decide if I’m going to create a boss-battle or not.
