Interlude: Autofire 2k7 Contest

I don’t ordinarily play shoot-em-ups at all, but I’ve really enjoyed playing the entries for the Autofire 2K7 Contest over at shmup-dev.com. The results have just been announced, and the overall quality is awesome.

The wining game is Clean Asia, and rightly so too. I’ve been playing this perfectly formed work of genius compulsively since I first found it – it’s way out in front as the best game of 2007 so far. Actually, I can’t think of anything that was released last year that even comes close to this.

I just finished it last night, finally, so I’m feeling pretty chuffed with myself 🙂

Right then. Back to the game.

    That game’s *hard*

    It seems hard at first, but when you get a knack for it, you realise that it’s not really hard – it’s balanced just perfectly. The learning curve is maybe a bit steep, but I actually think it’s too easy now – I can finish the whole thing without losing a life 🙂
