A space shooter which is just a beta demo, a test of what i can do with the genre. hold fire to charge up a large blast. press Spacebar to get 2 satellites that orbit your ship, pressing fire ~3 times will make the satellites fire!

its Beta demo of what i can do with the Space shooter genre whilst my other shooter (Titan Genesis) remains in the making.

Uses sprites and music from Titan Genesis. yep all graphics are MINE! and the soundtrack will be too once i get round to it.

game ends when you reach earth.

i had no time last night :) ill polish it all up tonight or tommorow. but have you played the game?!
Posted by Ashman 9th December, 2003

No, I am not downloading until I know what I'm downloading... If you had no time, don't post it until you had time. This is no laughing matter here at the Daily Click. Wipe that smile off your face!

OMG now i remembered why i left here in the first place. Not all of us lay about all day with all the time in the world, this is a hobby to me, something to do when a few minutes of the day are free. just dont download it if it dosnt fit your air-tight criteria! :) ive had many good reviews about this already, sure its only a little tech demo but everyone who's seen it likes it. Lets see you upload 10 games in one night, nay, in 15 spare minutes. Dines old friend, this is why I prefare the homely communities. You dont get shot down for trivial matters. then again i personally dont think this is bad for a n00b ;)

never take anything a person with a mullet says seriously. :)
Posted by Ashman 11th December, 2003

LOL! I was getting into an Admin-y mood. Did I do good? LOL, Jay, come on! You spent soooo much time complaining about my complaining, you could have done like 3 lines of that to describe what the hell the game was... It's better now, just watch yourself in the future. I may feel like being in a tightass admin mood again another day, so watch out!
Posted by DeadmanDines 11th December, 2003

Lol. When you get more time, Jim, you can edit the download description/screenshots by going to the top-left box on the page and clicking 'User Admin', then finding the download you want to edit and simply clicking the 'edit' button.:)
Posted by Dr. James MD 11th December, 2003

what else can i add? there isnt anything to it :) just a nice (IMO) engine
Posted by Lew 11th December, 2003

Not the game, the description and screenshots
Posted by Ashman 13th December, 2003

Screenshots in particular...
Posted by Dr. James MD 13th December, 2003

Screenshots are on another community which i prefare. only reason im here is cuz i thought you guys might appreciate seeing my work... i didnt know you would all be so angry with me :)
Posted by Ashman 13th December, 2003

We're angry cos there's no screenshots dipshit!
Posted by Dr. James MD 14th December, 2003

ooooh now im angry! dont expect me coming back to this place again. if you do want anything from me go to a DECENT community, of which i wont give you the address for fear of it going shit, or go to flaming cuz you feel like it... theres no construction in that. wingers... little cry babies... cuz they dont get what they want they cry.
Posted by Crystal Clear (H.E.S) 14th December, 2003

Dont go because people said a few things, i dont care if it doesnt have Screenshots. its a nice addition but i dont think every download needs to have them, if the author chooses not to then thats hes decision. Anyway, im still going to download it, BTW it sounds good.
Posted by Crystal Clear (H.E.S) 14th December, 2003

Download link doesnt seem to work?, ill try your site.
Posted by Ashman 14th December, 2003

So, originally it had no description, no screenshots, and the D/L link didn't work... and he's complaining about me... Get your hand off it man!
Posted by Dr. James MD 15th December, 2003

just go to not my fault if this place is annoying when posting links, i put DIRECT copy/paste addresses in for my games
Posted by Ashman 15th December, 2003

Nah, lol, but it's fun to blame you cos you go off in DC-mails and make me wet my pants laughing...
Posted by Ashman 15th December, 2003

Excellent work Jay White, this is finally up to scratch with screenshots I think I'll even add it to the front page...
Posted by Dr. James MD 15th December, 2003

everything fixed now. just be thankful i like this place enough to even bother ;)
Posted by renneF 15th December, 2003

This has got to be the coolest thing to hit TDC in a long time, even though its just a beta! You NEED to finish it :D
Posted by Buster 15th December, 2003

How the hell do I download it? I've tried left clicking, right clicking copy and pasting....
Posted by Kirby Smith 15th December, 2003

Way to break the download link. This game looks friggin' cool. I want to play it.
Posted by RyGuyX 15th December, 2003

the link is right (now, cuz i fixed the name for him), but for me the DC's link isn't working. Just copy and paste the zip adress in to the adress bar to download.
Posted by RyGuyX 15th December, 2003 in case you didn't get it before
Posted by Kirby Smith 16th December, 2003

Nice. I was hoping for a full game (didn't read the description), but it was quick fun while it lasted. Old school shooters like this are my favorite genre of game. I'll have to keep my eyes open for Titan Genesis. Graphics friggin' rule BTW.
Posted by Astral_86 16th December, 2003

Looks COOL ! Dl:ing...
Posted by Ashman 16th December, 2003

I like to Bitch Dave...
Posted by cake 16th December, 2003

haha the argument was pretty funny. I get a feeling people lack respect for Ashman, haha noone took his side! (Note: I'm not taking his side either :P)

Change the %.... stuff in the url to %20 I think. Why both posting if ya ain't gonna write up a little ... why bother getting up in the morning ... why bother showering every day ... why bother wiping your ... why bother? If ya can't be bothered, don't bother :P The game - nice bold graphics and effects. Can't really find a game in there yet ;) but I guess you can't be bothered to finish it either? Shame, this could look good, are you going to make a game from this?
Posted by Dr. James MD 16th December, 2003

its a tech demo, something to distract me from making Shikun (Chicken) and Titan Genesis... ok so its the same genre as TG. nevermind might as well show the world what i can do just incase the world ends soon... hey! ya never know!
Posted by Dr. James MD 16th December, 2003

hmm that is weird. WTF is up with the link i posted? if you copy and paste the address into a new window it works fine... i give up! like ive said before just go to my site and download it
Posted by Tom 17th December, 2003

It looks like jay has been inspired by R-type **looks at ship with a beady eye** ;)
Posted by Dr. James MD 17th December, 2003

yep i was inspired by R-Type, i thought i mentioned this before? well i have somewhere! the ship is similar to the craft from R-Type Leo but rest assured it was not ripped. this is saying that the ships in Titan Exodus look like the ships in R-Type 2 (not very similar at all). but thats a sharp eye you have there Tom F

God I love the massive beam.... Mmmm massive beam...
Posted by Muz 17th December, 2003

Um, FYI, the name Hired Guns is already taken. You might wanna change it to something else. Can't seem to download the actual game, though. You might wanna avoid putting spaces in the title of anything you upload. Just a few friendly suggestions...
Posted by Dr. James MD 18th December, 2003

yea Hired Guns is an Amiga title, but Hired Gun isnt but i always keep adding that 'S at the end XD
Posted by Kris 18th December, 2003

fun, but i have this weird white blotch in the middle of the screen! what is it?
Posted by AtariKee 18th December, 2003

I've been working on and off on a game with weapons similar to this (such as the charged laser, although mine has three different intensities), but have never finished it. Once my current game is finished then maybe. Nice work so far, although your graphics would be outstanding at a better resolution. Thumbs up.
Posted by Zip2kx 19th December, 2003

link doesnt work
Posted by Dr. James MD 19th December, 2003

read the comments and take a lovely trip to its all there. the link is copied over directly (case sensitive and all) maybe i should have removed that space. %20; whats the story behind them anyways?
Posted by Jonas (Peasants) 20th December, 2003

Posted by Dr. James MD 20th December, 2003

Yay! Good to see my friend's friend doing good on a klik community (btw, jay, you're ryan's friend right?)) which is slowly being overrun with lazy and critisizing dipshits....
Posted by Knudde (Shab) 21st December, 2003

slowly overrun? I think not, stupidity multiplies faster than rabbits.
Posted by Dr. James MD 12th January, 2004

Posted by renneF 29th January, 2004

You have to finish this man, come on :)
