New Enemy — Bursters

Posted on 14 May 2011

These new enemies explode into a shower of bullets when destroyed. The player could just ignore them, but then they’ll lose their accumulated multiplier. Better to time their destruction so that there’s plenty of space to deal with the fallout.

I’ll probably scatter these fairly sparsely, rather than have wave after wave like in the video.

(The new sprite shadows are visible here from time to time as well.)
