Bolt Thrower is currently single player Space Shoot 'Em Up. It’s still work in progress & hopefully a new version will be release once every 2 to 4 weeks. Every effort is being made to detach game data from the code, being 'data driven' anyone can change the look or functionality of the game. Basically a XML configuration file is used rather than hard coded data that’s locked into the code - that would just be plain silly. Please submit your ideas, bug reports or anything else via the discussion page if you wish to help in some way.
Version 0.47 of Bolt Thrower is now released - see change list - Don't forgot you can use arrow down to drop mines For this version I was hoping to use more 3D models in game - I had spend a long time modifying a Viper space craft I had found from 68980 polygons / 73793 points to something more usable for computer game, I ended up with a count of 6903 polygons / 3961 points . The original had used planar mapping which I updated to use UV textures instead and obviously the polygon count was way too high as the model was well designed and extremely detailed – shame I had to downgrade it. This whole process took me ages, especially the UV mapping.
