1.Reiser to the rescue(Upgraded version)
This is a Google cardboard mobile game develop from my previous project called Reiser to the rescue.
Reiser to the rescue was a 2d pixel html space shooting game, with score system, life counter and leveling system, and it was controlled by mouse clicking. I want to develop it into a more realistic game world and provide better game playing experience for gamers.
Hence, in order to upgrade my game into a new VR game, I will combine google cardboard with reiser to the rescue.
Here is rough background story for my previous game, and it will be expand to a more detailed narration for vr game, which also expand to different types of levels.It will also have a simple cutscene for introducing the background story and controlling of the game before actual game start.
The new game will be change from third person control to first person control, which is to be more realistic. So gamers will feel to be in the spaceship instead of using prof. Martin reiser as the main character in the spaceship.
Besides, the new game will add in more functions to make it more playable and durable.
