There has been a lot of advanced graphics IOTD's lately, so I thought I'd post a little more...not so...advanced one. This image is taken from a little game that I've done, it's called Alien Attack.

The game started out as a little experiment(I'm learning OpenGL) and grew into this funny little game, so there's a lot of things I would have done different if I would have amied for a game from the start. As you can see on the picture it is a simple shoot 'em up and all graphics is rendered using textured OpenGL quads, the graphics may be extremely simple, but the result is pretty neat! don't you think? The music and other sounds is played using the REX library, created by Nathan Davidson, so big aps for him! Although Alien Attack is a very simple game, it's still a complete game so go to my webpage and download it! If you want the source code(comments are in swedish), you can send a mail to and I'll send it to you!

Now, you may think: "what's up with the name! Alien Attack...looks like a normal spaceship-blowing-up-comets type of game to me". Well, read the story at my webpage and you'll understand...
