Galagian is a wave-based top-down shmup with bullet-hellish gameplay and a load of enemies.

When inspecting the source code please remember that this was the very first ActionScript 3.0 game I have ever made. It's dated and it's awful, it was slightly refactored to make it a bit more palatable but...

...bewere, here be dragons.

This repository contains the freely available source code and assets for the game by Retrocade.net.

How to build the project

Open build.cmd in your text editor, update MXMLC_PATH variable with the path to Flex SDK (it should support at least Flash Player 10.1), and then run build.cmd. If you're on a non-windows o/s the commands used in the file should still work fine so you can use them as basis.
