Blow stuff up
Lots of it. Use gunpods. Use missiles. Because that's what the aliens
will be using to blow you up. Don't worry about feeling guilty. They had it coming.
They tried to destroy mankind...
Multiple Variable Fighters
Players can select which type of Valkyrie they wish
to fly. The current list includes the VF-1X Plus Valkyrie, the VF-11 Thunderbolt,
and the VF-19 Excalibur. However, more will likely be added
if there is enough demand, and I feel like it.
Different missions types
This game is not just a mindless shoot'em up. Although
that is the best part. But you are also be able to fly a variety of different
missions, such as escort duty (for things such as a Cat's Eye recon plane, or a Star Goose
shuttle), raids, and rescues, along with the usual body count-a-thon.
Well, there are only so many things you can do with a 2D side scroller, but you will
be able to set up some missions of your own by tweeking certain parameters.
Control over Valkyrie modes
For some reason, most other Macross-type games I've
played have some odd system for selecting modes. Such as the game picking the mode
for you, or having to get powerups. Not with Screaming Valkyries baby! You can
switch modes from battloid robot (yeah, I know in Macross it's Battroid, but I
could never get used to that), to Gerwalk half plane/half robot, to fighter whenever
your little heart desires.
The Valkyrie will be able to land on various landscapes and do
battle with fat, juicy targets.
If I get around to implementing ground, what better to add than
destroids? They will definitely be around as eye candy and to help you blow up
aliens, and perhaps you will be able to pilot them as well. Although, since it is
a 2D scroller, it may not be as fun as it should be. Unless it is a MK II Monster,
Not only will you be able to fly around in space, but also in
various atmospheres, such as good old blue sky and clouds.
Anti-UN mecha and craft
Different mecha and equipment used by the Anti-UN, including the Renegade Power Armor.
I may even add ships of my own design, like X-Wings. Just kidding.
