Attack of the Drones

Huzzah! It's been over a year since I posted anything, but I haven't had much to post. I haven't been working on games lately, but recently my brother and I added a cool new aspect to our King of the Kaiju game. Now, whenever you get to 100 points (and every 100 after that) you will have to face a boss vehicle. It is a military quadcopter that we based on the quad fan drones that are becoming popular lately. When the boss is about to show up, all other vehicles stop spawning and the player gets a flashing warning sign on their screen. The quadcopter doesn't advance on the screen, but moves up and down the right side, firing missiles at the player. The player has to hit the quadcopter four times to defeat it, but that can be hard to do since they are spending most of their time shooting down the incoming missile barrage. I'm really happy with how the boss turned out and I think it is a great addition to the game. I have plans for one more boss in the future, if I can get around to it, but I also would like to start working on some more games soon.

Here is a screenshot of the quadcopter boss in action:

And here is a closer look at the boss itself:
