Star Phase (Fork from https://github.com/Jigoku/starphase)

A top down / side scrolling space shooter made with Lua and Love2D.

This app depends on LÖVE runtime, make sure you install it first: https://openrepos.net/content/sashikknox/love-2d-runtime

This is yet more a technical demo than a full game, there is only one stage which randomly changes the background colors and planets and one boss. There's nothing after you beat the boss, feel free to contribute if you want to see more content.

I added to this fork:

  • Thumbstick control support (You can navigate menus and play the game with the left thumbstick)
  • Added touch controls and several tweaks to run on mobiles (check releases for more info).
  • Two players mode (work in progress)
  • Dialogs
  • Boss (first stage)
  • Credits

Tweaks for the mobile version:

  • Disabled love-webp libraries
  • Reduced size of planets resolution
  • Only 3 music tracks kept in order to reduce the size of the game to keep distribution easy.

Version 0.1.3-1 adds two extra music tracks which are triggered when approaching / reaching the first boss.

Version 0.1.4-1 adds:

- menu navigation support for the touch controls.

- Remote controls for the 2 player mode (second ship can be controlled over internet)

Beware: the network control feature is intended for developers and betatesters, do not try it if you don't want to get your hands dirty: there's no menu or way to set it up without editing manully the source code. For more info please check the repository.

Version 0.1.4b-1 adds:

local multiplayer and remote network controls improvements (to be used together with the virtual gamepad):

  • Added network menu to enable, disable and set up network controls
  • Player one can also be controlled remotely (in one player mode)
  • Added network menu to set up the remote server ip, ports and the ip of the virtual gamepad that connects to it.

Music and sounds play very loud and current LÖVE builds do not feature master volume control (pressing volume buttons does not affect the game). As a workaround to the problem I suggest using headphones.
