I doubt it, since the game idea is not Space Invaders but more based on Galaxian. I don't know what the performance would be either, but judging by how long it takes to draw sprites of 27 rectangles, I would say don't expect anything better than 3 FPS for this (unless I showed 12 ships at a time instead of 16 like in my 2002 BASIC game). Each ship in this mockup are 2 rectangles, which means 32 rectangles plus your ship and the two laser blocks, meaning 34 rectangles total and 35 during boss fights. That would mean 27 rectangles if 12 ships show up.

Showing 12 ships at a time seems like a good compromise, though, given that you could only shoot 1 laser at a time (although they would move fast).

EDIT: Here's another boss idea, where only 2 ships would be alive (dead ships are black) and the enemy grid is 12 ships large:



The boss rectangle is basically drawn behind the army in a way that makes it look like a giant alien ship. Killing both eyes would destroy the boss. The boss that appears during the yellow enemy wave would be very hard in the way that you wouldn't be able to see the eyes you need to shoot, but some people might find this kinda cheap <_<

I think it'd be cool anyway. Are you going to make some moving mock-ups?

I wanted to see how Quote (from Cave Story) might look in the CE now that xlibCE is being developed.

Calc Wars is still alive (I hope)

Looks nice. I wonder how the game overall would look like with 160x120 sprites. Someone made 8x8 sprites of Cave Story on Omnimaga in 2010 but of course they were monochrome.

I bet it would look pretty cool! That's a lot of room for details.

Its meant for the CE ;) How do the proportions look?

DJ Omnimaga

I like it, but I think the buttons should have a smaller width (50% of the logo)

I think so too, but the 16*16 font does not fit the orignal size button.

DJ Omnimaga

Isn't the font 8*8 but with a 2x zoom? You could get rid of the zoom.

IDK why, but it looks to small:

It actually looks ok on the mockup, but the CE screen is tiny :P

DJ Omnimaga

Actually it's not that bad. Small stuff can look fine on the CE LCD but it depends which color.

Here are some mockups for what a Ghost 'N' Goblins clone or some sort of zombie game could look like in CE Textlib, if objects and monsters only had 3 blocks each, the floor remained static, as well as the sky:

TO be honest, I was never a big fan of Zombie Gun CE. It is fun for a while, especially when there is a shop, but as a side-scrolling platformer fan, I get bored of those games easily because all you do is shoot zombies on a flat plains map with absolutely no obstacle, pits, etc. I prefer when we can jump on platforms, over pits, avoid spikes and solve mazes like in NES games.

Yeah, I always thought the original Zombie Gun was lacking something, but that was before I found out about the "Back From the Dead" beta on Omnimaga that was extremely challenging and gave you no time for boredom, and required you to be on your toes or die in an instant.
