Star Fleet: Arcade

Star Fleet: Arcade was a retelling of the Star Fleet TV show in video game format.
The game consisted of a number of genres, including:

  • Vertical, 360' and horizontal-scrolling space shooter missions by me
  • Platforming and fighting levels by Dave Surridge / Zordon

It was a stellar game for its time but, in the end, we both started work on other things and didn't have time to finish it.

Levels

Pretty much everything that I made for Star Fleet Arcade found its way into X-Bomber.
The first level; Moonbase was incorporated into X-Bomber's training mission.
I still have plans to incorporate a freighter escort mission into X-Bomber in order to incorporate the gameplay from level 2.
A good deal of level 3 was incorporated into X-Bomber's mission 3.
Level 4 was incorporated into X-Bomber when you revisit Sargasso in mission 7 of X-Bomber.
Level 5 was effectively incorporated into X-Bomber when the Dai-X became a player ship alongside X-Bomber.

Development History

The way Star Fleet: Arcade was developed was actually pretty good because the project was pretty-much-always 'demo-ready'. All the levels that we started were all complete and playable.
