Comrade’s first Steps

I recently completed a class that taught programming with Flash.  For the final we had to make a simple game.  Having only a few weeks to work on it, I made a simple SHMUP featuring a character I had on my mind for a while named Comrade.

Comrade SHMUP

If the sprites look a bit big for a SHMUP and a dog shooting lasers seems a bit weird it’s because I didn’t really design this character for a SHMUP.  My plan for Comrade is to create an exploration based 2D platformer with him as the main character.  Expect to see more of Comrade as that project continues.  I should also note that this was my first time doing any real pixel art work, so I know I have some improvements to make.
