Well, here it is, for better or worse....aw, hell...what am I talking about...simply for worse...I give you...at NO CHARGE WHATSOEVER....
My C# +e+ris clone!
Left arrow is left,
right arrow is right,
down arrow is speedup,
and up arrow is rotate.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any crap that may happen to your computer while playing this game.
By the way... if you haven't used Windows automatic update in the past few months, you need to install the Windows.NET framework...it's 20.4 megabytes
in order to play the game, or run any ".NET" applications. Gawd...Well, I hear they're including it in the next release of Windows, anyway, so it shouldn't matter much in another few years...jeez...well at least you don't have to download as much as the java virtual machine...gah!

The game is not done yet, the refreshing sucks and needs to be recoded to get rid of that stupid blinking effect, it only goes up to a certain speed, you can't choose your own level yet, there's no sounds, the cheat menu isn't enabled yet, the high score saver isn't encrypted, the high score only gives one high score and not any names, etc...etc...and finally, there might be one or two more bugs I don't know about. Ye gawds, the joy of programming. But the cool thing is that this code can be used as a springboard for old-school style side scrollers, like the original metriod...albeit quite different and the graphics badly need to be redone...but a guy can dream can't he? =P
Enjoy!
