Sharing my Laser Defender Game - Hope you have fun!

I went a couple days of work beyond the base design just to see what I could do.

For some reason the arrow keys don’t do a very good job of moving diagonally while I’m holding the space bar (space bar + multiple arrow keys) but there’s no problem with using the WASD keys in the same way. For best results, use WASD!

Anyone have any ideas why this happens?

You need to get a better keyboard.

This thread explains the problem better than I can: http://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/6669/how-do-i-remove-the-limit-on-pc-keyboard-button-presses

Nice work @TrojanHorse. Really smooth gameplay. Only thing else that I would want is maybe some weapon powerups but other than that its a very good game! I was a bit surprised when the big ship showed up and promptly got destroyed. Looking to see more from you!

@wesley The bosses will all drop weapon power-ups!

Thank you for the encouragement!

Thanks for the answer @chris.claus42. I tried it out on my wife’s keyboard and she has no problems with the arrow keys. I guess “gaming keyboards” don’t need the arrow keys anyway.

Arrow keys worked fine for me. 112,800 points. I enjoyed that! Great job.

Awesome! Since I didn’t get past the boss the first time I didn’t notice that. The bosses are pretty tough! That or I just suck at it. Still great game!
