About This Game:
Legacy of the Elder Star is a completely mouse-driven shmup with a unique slashing mechanic. It’s inspired by CAVE shmups, rogue-lites, and a dash of Diablo.
The game is played exclusively with the mouse (no keyboard, no gamepad). That gives you 1:1 avatar motion which lets you move faster and with more precision than in any other shmup. I use that for some unique movement-based attacks like the game’s most iconic move, the star dash, wherein you physically dash through entire chains of opponents to destroy them all in one quick gesture.
Level sequences are randomized, so you’re not just memorizing one optimal path like you would with classic shmups. I’ve made a big library of hand-built enemy patterns; each of the five stages has an authored high-level structure, and the phases within that structure randomly select from themed subsets of those patterns.
