Introducing Strike Buster Prototype: A Refreshing Twist on Shoot 'Em Up Games

Introducing Strike Buster Prototype: A Refreshing Twist on Shoot 'Em Up Games

15K View2023-06-05
Hello everyone, I'm 93, the producer of Strike Buster Prototype. Let me introduce our studio, Zero Castle. We are a virtual collaborative studio based in China, and Strike Buster Prototype is our first original game project.
Personally, I've always been a big fan of shoot 'em up (STG) games. However, I feel that most modern STG games have become purely bullet-hell experiences. So, we made the decision to rearrange and combine traditional STG elements to create a new and unique form of the genre.
Our first step was to develop a combo system where hitting enemies accumulates energy. We integrated this combo system with the player's life, magic, and shield values. Once players accumulate enough energy, they can enhance their firing rate and unleash powerful skills to annihilate their foes. With energy in reserve, players can also mitigate damage from enemies. However, it's crucial to be mindful of using up all the accumulated energy, as it leaves the player vulnerable. This system adds a strategic and exhilarating dimension to the entire gameplay experience.
In terms of art style, we have opted for pixel art and utilized hand-drawn, 12-frame pseudo-3D sequences to depict the monsters. For the characters, we have employed Spine pseudo-3D animation to achieve smooth movement and turning animations.
Regarding the game system, we have maintained the traditional gameplay pattern of dealing with waves of small enemies leading up to challenging boss encounters. While limited by our budget, we haven't developed complex game levels. However, we have implemented a director system that dynamically refreshes the types of enemy assaults based on the player's performance. Additionally, we have introduced some roguelite elements. It's important to note that Strike Buster Prototype is not strictly a rogue game that requires players to choose item combinations. In fact, players can even bring pre-selected items into the game to dominate the battlefield.

The development of Strike Buster Prototype has been an exciting adventure for us. It has proven that recombining traditional gameplay patterns can bring forth a completely new gaming experience. It has also laid the foundation for our future game development endeavors. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy the game we have created!

btw I cannot get access to the after the start game, I think there was suppose to be something more other than the never ending endless game e.g. like characters, gamemode or something? or is it not up yet? because something would flash in my screen for a split seconds, and I could see some images of character below and a word endless top left of the screen

Back in Space once again! You against vast enemies! Strike Buster Prototype Review!
We are back on again with a game that was in beta for a while but is now coming out this week for a full release on August 9th! So before, I wasn't super impressed with the game, but it did have addictive gameplay! Looking at this game again, there have been some improvements, even though the gameplay is somewhat similar. There have been some updates to the game and some customization! Today we are looking at Strike Buster Prototype.

Strike Buster Prototype: A Bullet Hell with a smidge of roguelite.
Hey folks, new review here- with it being Zero Castle Game studios Strike Buster Prototype- a arcade-y bullet Hell that very much fits a pick up and play experience, without asking the player to invest too much time. That said, did it have staying power, or was it a bust? Check out the video to find out. P.S.ย  If you want to see my other reviews, you can check out & Follow me @ Youtubeโ†’ Discordโ†’

The game combines retro style graphics and music with modern game mechanics and gameplay. The game controls a hero and we use various weapons and items to destroy various enemies and bosses. The basic gameplay of the game is based on earning points by shooting enemies and creating combos. After creating combos, you can buy and upgrade more powerful weapons and items. The game also includes roguelike elements. In each game, you will find a different level layout, different enemies and different items. This adds replayability and difficulty to the game.
