Developer's note:

 

Newo Shooter is a rail shooter in a third-person and first-person 3D perspective. The player must navigate his spacecraft, through environments while various enemies (spaceships, robots, creatures, etc.) attack him. Enemies drop various power-ups (free lives, 50% health, weapon upgrades, shields) to help the player. At the end of each level there is a boss that the player must defeat before progressing to the next level.

Known issues:

  • No Story, Sound Effects, BG Music, Models
  • Ship movement is a bit stiff
  • Upgraded weapons "look" different, but collision detection is only on the center bullet
  • targeting cursor is a bit off and has a little learning curve.
  • collision detection from enemy fire is random and enemies have a hard time killing the player
  • Some of the variables in the game still need to be tweaked to make the game more challenging
  • nunchuk does not work in planet menu
  • Flying into the ground or walls in levels 3,4 or 5 results in instant death (or more accurately death in 2 or 3 seconds of impact)
  • the planet menu only supports switching levels in 2 directions; next or previous. (not based on the position of the actual planet on screen)
