Published: Game Template - Rail Shooter


Recommended Posts

We released our first Game Template: The Rail Shooter Template. Game templates are packages that contain the core tech to build a certain type of game. 

The Rail Shooter Template contains dynamic game elements from the classic rail shooter genre. Players travel along a predetermined path, shooting at enemies that appear on the screen. The aim is to survive for as long as possible and score as many points as possible. This template would be a good starting point for a game with an arcade-style feel.

The template contains the core tech for

  • Controlling a player spaceship (Movement, shooting)
  • Guiding player movement along a (GeNa) spline
  • Basic enemy placement, movement and ai behavior
  • Collectible PowerUps
  • Shooting and destroying enemies
  • Speed Boost and Health
  • Simple Game Menu and Game states (Playing / Paused / Game Over)
  • Simple UI for displaying, health, score etc.

The template is available for our Canopy Pro subscribers in the download area:
