Shoot'em Up: More info about RESHOOT PROXIMA 3
Ex-"Amiga Joker"-editor Richard L÷wenstein is still working intensively on his third shoot'em up. After RESHOOT and RESHOOT R, the title "RESHOOT PROXIMA 3" is currently being developed.

The developer regularly informs about the latest progress on his Patreon page. Last week, for example, he explained his approach and changes to the ocean theme of his game in a short video. For three months he tinkered with the visual design of this level because he was not satisfied with the original version, which, in his opinion, did not contain anything unique or surprising. He came up with the idea of perspective scrolling: that's what he calls a variation of scrolling that applies scrolling at different speeds to different rows of images. This creates the illusion of a camera pulling forward on a 3D structure, he says. This can greatly enhance visual depth, he says. Normally, horizontally scrolling games like "Street Fighter II" are associated with this, but examples on the Amiga would be rare. He still mentions "Lionheart", "Elfmania", "Overkill" and "RESHOOT R". For his latest game he wanted to turn the feature to vertical orientation, which he succeeded in doing after a few attempts. He asks users to tell him what they think about the sample scene and also if they know any other games with vertical scrolling, if any.

In another brief statement, Richard L÷wenstein shares that his "pixel artist" Kevin Saunders and he have completed the themes and color scheme for all five sections of the game. Likewise, his the code and implementation of all visual effects for the levels ready. (dr) (Translation: bb)
