This is my avatar that I made back in the good old 90's :D
I've got the general engine down for cipher. Many basic collisions and explosions seem to be working without any bugs.
Reminds me of Android 17 from Dragonball Z
Doesn't look like sasuke!
thast quite a good work in there. i was checking the demo of your shmup and it left me wondering how much of cipher is actually complete?
