Ever wondered what a game would be like if you mixed an RPG with an R-Type shooter?

Iron Cloud is set to be an R-Type shooter with a difference. The main difference being that the game is a sort of mixed-up genre... you fly around like an R-Type (although your actually in a giant robot mech thing called Titan-01) but you gain experience like an RPG, and the combat is based on experience as well a bit like an action RPG.

So I figured that if I could get the R-Type aspect of it down (in Qbasic with DQB) then the rest would be easy... and waddya know? It worked! So the first downloadable demo is a little highscore thing with a scrolling storyline and the classic high score table that comes with the package. Check out the Black Gate Corps page to find out about its progress.

Wow. 7 of ten because of some weird bugs:
Question. why does the game quit before time runs out, or you lose all your health?
I never got hit once, had 215 kills, and 46 seconds on the timer. but it ended.?
Well, awesome demo, I want to see the final game!!!!!!

I can't wait to see this game finished.

The controls were smooth as could be and made the shooting aspect of the game very fun. Nothing ruins a game more than terrible input systems.

I would have prefered a longer time to accumulate a score (it ran for 45 seconds before having it start over), but still I got 239 kills ;)

Anyone who enjoys shoot-em-ups should try this game.
