Play as Rainbow Dash and Spike as a swarm of Parasprites come through. Use Spike to shoot fireballs and burn these little feathered balls. You also have your Rainbow Power which allows you to use powers such as rapid fire and rainbomb on collision. You have your score and level that goes up as you gain points. The higher the level, the more Parasprites.

2.94: In preparation of the next boss.

This update should fix a few bugs before going on to the next boss of the game. Here's the changes:

-New preview pic. Hope you guys like it!

-Upgraded pony graphics

-Trail graphics upgraded

-Gilda has been changed around a little bit. She now throws pegasi and pillars, save the pegasi to earn extra points!

-Fluttershy's stare has been changed to a new skill I learned. Bitmap Displacement Filter!

-Finally got the Red Parasprite in! It grows as you shoot it and then explodes. Watch the fire from the explosion, fire doesn't take sides.

Ok, I think that's all. Sorry for the wait. I'm juggling Android projects here as well. I'll be waiting a little bit before starting in case there are other bugs that I've missed. After that, I'll be posting my development update journals as usual and extend this game further.

See you guys in the next update! /)

Top Three Leaders of 2.93:

Third Place goes to PLOTNSTYNE with 582250 points

Second Place goes to Ansam with 625910 points

and First Place goes to Linnkk with 684460 points

Hopefully getting such high scores wont be so easy now with the bug fixes and exploit patching I've been doing. The Rainboom takes more rainbow juice now, and rainbow juice frequency has risen. Good luck in the competition for 2.94 eveypony!

Quick Fix:

OC Gilda bug now fixed. Enjoy playing as OC again without Gilda constantly coming back to life!

You are never going to update this, are ya?

No, I've explained it in my journal. I'm discontinuing development of this project and moving it over to Android. If you happen to have an Android phone or tablet, I'd be happy to make you an alpha tester for the Android version of this project. Once I get the proper equipment and finish the game on Android, Windows and iOS ports will come next.

I'm doing this because this project is a fun way for me to learn how to code and design. I had done a lot with Flash, so then I started on Android development. Then I started thinking that this game is more made for mobile devices, so I've made it my goal to build this game on the three major operating systems: Android, iOS, and Windows.

Current Status for Mobile Development: Halted for personal and planning reasons

When it comes to the planning reasons, I'm trying to figure out whether if I really want to make a 2D shooter, or change it to a 3D shooter. Now that I think about it, I'll probably just make two versions. I'm also trying to figure out how I can make an app that will help the user build sprites for the OC Creator. That, and I kinda want to make my own OpenGL engine rather than use Andengine because of course, this project is for my education, and using a pre-built engine feels like cheating.

Anyways, this project is dead for Flash, but it's not dead fully. It is being rebuilt for mobile devices instead. As I said before, there's an alpha test version available if you wish to play it on your Android device if you happen to have one. Just send me a note with your email address, and I'll add you to the list.

And im just sitting there being like
PCs can emulate console games, play basically ANYTHING, but they cant run apps?
circuitsense Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Heheheh, well who says I can't make it a Windows and Mac app? I've been thinking about a 3D version of the game, so once I get a hold on 3D modelling and Unity, I'll be able to make the 3SP 3D, Spectrum Speed Shooter Project 3D.

Imagine a shooter like Star Fox 64, but with ponies, and creating your own pony as well!

Also, unicorns can use spells to fly, but Earth ponies should have a jetpack or mechanical wings. :3
circuitsense Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Good point. I've been feeling that earth ponies need some love too.

Balloons sound good, but jet packs sound awesome. Let me think about that for a little, I'll think of something.

Also changelings.
And griffons.
And batponies.
circuitsense Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Well once I finish the OC Creator for the 3SP, players will have 100% control of making sprites. Though it will be a bit harder to get the OC you want if its not possible on the sprite maker, you can still do it if you have an image editor.

Batponies were actually planned for the next update for this game as a Nightmare Night special last year, but I'll be sure to add it in the sprite maker app.
