Hi I made this site and this is my blog for everything

This is an experiment at using just canvas and javascript for a shoot em up. It keeps the payload small so it loads quick on any connection. I was also thinking of using some unconventional controls to make the player build up some muscle memory to master it.

In the experiment above left and right move you left and right and up jumps. Holding d and an arrow key lets you dash in the direction and holding s and pressing an arrow key shoots in that direction.

It would need some kind of energy bar to stop you dashing all the time but I like the idea of using both hands to master combos on the keyboard.
