Rightwaves, my tribute to R-Type, is coming on nicely.

It’s a sideways-scrolling shoot-em up with pixel graphics and pixel-perfect collision detection.

It’s somewhat playable at the moment, but I tend to mess about with start positions from time to time.

Recent features include a diagonal lasers upgrade, and alien guns stuck to the top and bottom of the scenery.

In order to fix a bug recently, I introduced a secret “action replay” mode, which I hope to turn into a real feature in future releases. For now, pressing Z toggles a freeze-frame modes which you can navigate using the left and right arrow keys.

Still to do: the rest of the level (including the famous red tailed alien at the end), and game mechanics like lives and restarts.
