Well a while ago Titan Exodus made its debut, made by Titan. I played it and decided I really wanted to make a game like it. Me being stupid and all had no ideas so I just started making a Titan Exodus 2. I asked Titan if i could do it, gave him an alpha and he said sure.
So here is the result of that: a fast paced (well near the end) arcade style shooter set in various areas over 10 levels with a large number of upgrades for your ship as you lead the Exodus freedom fighters on another quest to defeat the Evil Machine, who is slowly regaining power.
Aiding you are a number of adept pilots at your side, manouvering through the complex tunnels and fighting their way through the hordes of mechanical and alien minions.
This game is just about finished, and its a tribute to old-school games like R-type and Turrican. I don't know how hard you'll find it but I find it moderate to challenging.
