Sequel to the hugely popular and critically acclaimed SDL2 Shooter! [citation needed]

This is 2D vertical shoot-em-up created as part of the Parallel Realities SDL2 game tutorials.

The goal of the game is to blast through an unlimited number of alien attack waves. Power-ups are available from time to time. Bosses are encountered every 10th wave.

== How to play ==

Arrow keys: Control fighter

Left ctrl: Fire guns

Escape: Pause / In-game menu

1 point is awarded per small alien killed, 100 points per boss. A bonus of 25 points are available in the form of a points token for defeating an entire wave.

A special UFO will sometimes appear at the top of the screen. Destroying it will yield a power-up pod. Picking up the pod will yield certain benefits:

Red: Sidearms (can be destroyed by alien fire)

Blue: A shield that can protect the player against 4 shots (excludes sidearms)

Green: A mobile drone (limited to 3 at any time, can be destroyed be alien fire)

(S): Speed increase

(R): Rate of fire increase (limited ammo - collect more to increase reserve)

The game ends when the player's fighter is destroyed.

== Highscores ==

The game features a highscore table (saved to a file called save.json). You may enter your name if you qualify for entry upon finishing your game.

== Menus ==

Use the arrow keys to navigate and change options. Use the left and right arrow keys to change volumes. When redefining keys, highlight the control to change, press Space or Return, then the key you wish to use. Pressing Escape will cancel the change.

== Other ==

Game configuration (volumes, controls, highscores, etc.) are saved to a file called save.json, in the same directory as the game.
